    Miron
    Zajfert, Artistic Director of New Jewish Music Festival in Warsaw:

    ‘Karolina
    Cicha is a charismatic singer and a composer endowed with
    extraordinary sensibility to poetic phrase. “Greetings from
    Yiddishland” (…) is born out of her fascination with musical
    tradition and brings what is the most precious in it: an element of
    truth and the roots’ energy. She combines it, in an
    uncompromising way, with the innovative sound of the instruments and
    the emotional, filled with passion singing.’

    The
    album was co-financed by the Marshal Office of the Podlaskie
    Voivodship. Partners of the album are:

    Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN and Warsaw Singer Festival
    and New Jewish Music Festival in Warsaw.
