Songs from Milatycze near Lviv
Conducted by: singers from Kresowianka
Moderators: Ryszard Głogowski, Ewa Grochowska
The singing gathering with Kresowianka ensemble will be devoted to songs of Polish tradition from the village of Milatycze near Lviv. Nowadays these songs are only remembered in the village of Letnin near Pyrzyce in West Pomerania, where many people from Milatycze settled.
We invite especially wholeheartedly people who feel the connection to Borderlands where post-war relocations and migration led to mixing of traditions and communities. The last half-hour of the gathering will be devoted to talking about those areas of cultural identity.
