Food and music, fun and memories, table and dance are inextricably connected in times of celebrations. Just like sharing whatever good things we have got: homecooked meal, song and tale.
This year our music festival will be enriched by looking into culinary traditions. We invite you to the Feast called “Into that greenery”, which will showcase regional dishes and sounds connected with Easter and Spring rites. The culinary content, just as the musical one, stems from reaching down to the roots and sources, exploring the identity of local communities, expressed also in their alimentary customs.
The feast will be prepared by Monika Kucia together with the housewives and traditional food makers from Podlachia, Mazovia and Subcarpathia. The feasting and cooking shows will be coupled by talks about old customs, nature cycles, music, family histories as well as songs and toasts, and in the end – dancing to live music.

Gołcunecki – The all-female vocal ensemble was founded by Maria Siwiec in 2012 in Gałki, a small village in the Mazovia region. All the ladies from Gołcunecki have been singers since childhood and preserve the local mazurka singing tradition. Their repertoire comprises a wide range of folk songs connected with different rites, customs, and religious celebrations. They also perform characteristic local tunes called wyrywasy. They demonstrate extraordinary voice timbre, rhythm, phrasing and lyrics.
