The Janusz Prusinowski Trio from Poland
A special Sunday afternoon concert, connecting us with the wild and wonderful village music of central Poland.

Janusz Prusinowski Trio is a group of musicians who follow in traditions of village masters they have learned from: Jan Lewandowski, Kazimierz Meto, Józef Zaraś, Piotr and Jan Gaca, Tadeusz Kubiak and many others  but they are also an avant-garde band with their own characteristic sound and language of improvisation. They combine music with dance and the archaic with the modern.

The Trio's unique style is the result of their attempt to find new ways of interpreting the most important elements of village music from central Poland. It brings together mazurkas  sung, played, danced to, improvised live  and modern man. What new quality can be given to archaic and seemingly simple melodies and rhythms without resorting to trendy sample mixing? It turns out that traditional music of Polish villages can be a reference point for a variety of genres: reminiscent of Chopin in its melodic pattern and the use of rubato, sharing a love of improvisation with blues and jazz, evocative of contemporary music in its tone, and possessing the expressiveness of rock music.

Between 2008 and 2012 the band performed in most of European countries, Asia, Canada, the USA (including Carnegie Hall and Chicago Symphony Center)  and of course Poland. Besides playing concerts with traditional Polish music the band prepared a special programme of performances "The village roots of Frédéric Chopin's music" with pianist Janusz Olejniczak. In 2012 Trio begun a unique project "Kujawy" with three masters of Polish music: Tadeusz Kubiak, Tomasz Stańko, Janusz Olejniczak, and a group of singers led by Ewa Grochowska.The group also performed with Michał Urbaniak, Artur Dutkiewicz and Alim Qasimov. Apart of concerts, Trio's music can be heard at the parties of village and urban Dance Clubs or theatrical performances at the Polish National Theatre and the Polish Radio Theatre. They also run musical and dance workshops. In 2008 the band released "Mazurkas", an album which received rave reviews. This was followed in 2010 by their second album "Heart".

In October Janusz Prusinowski Trio, the 2012 Womex Nominee, performed at the prestigious world music fair - WOMEX 2012 in Thessaloniki.  

Please join us for this rare concert, an extraordinary cultural event.
