Easter songs for men
Singing gathering – Easter songs for men (Volochebni songs)
Instructors: Maciej Żurek, Marek Szwajkowski
There are a few places in Poland where traces of archaic Spring carols were preserved. In Podlachia that rite is called Volochebni songs and has always been a men’s thing, done usually by bachelors. Volochebni are good tidings carols but in its essence refer to the pre-Christian myth about creation. At the workshop we shall reach to the primary cause of that rite, learn volochebni songs and their technique and see the last Podlachia volochebniks.
