VOLOSI - Poland

VOLOSI - Poland

Location: Bled Festival Hall

A hypnotizing mixture of Carpathian tradition with classical musicians which evolves into a completely new type of world music. String instruments with a rock sound, jazzy improvisations and contemporary sensuality. Experience pure emotions from the Polish roots and spirit!

VOLOSI is one of the most prominent ensembles in the Polish world music scene and a rising star among world music bands in Europe. Since their debut in 2010 the band has received many awards. Their CD ranked among the top in the World Music Charts Europe.
Their music could be defined as an explosion of musical energy quickly escaping any rigidly formulated structures and interpretations. Crossing boundaries is a part of the show. Traditional musicians meet classical instrumentalists and travel along, reaching for never before heard of moving sensual music.

“A string quintet of astonishing virtuosity, Volosi create a magical and accessible blend of classicism and traditional Carpathian folk music, underpinned with melody, melancholy and the flavor of eastern Europe.”
