  • TATAR – a musical heritage of Polish Tatars

    The concert is based on a musical heritage of Polish Tatars

    During the concert one can hear archaic scales of Asian grasslands and Turkish-like melodies of Crimean Tatars. You can listen to such instruments as “kabyz” or steppe “saz” that could be played whilst horse-riding and hear Tatar songs, for example, „Tugan tyl” (a song from the 19th century about the beauty of a language of The Volga Tartars) or „Ej Gizel Kirim” (a song composed after the expulsion of Crimean Tartars in 1944).

    The original music of the Tatars that came to Poland in the 14th century did not survive. Tatars flourished their oriental cuisine, archery, old customs and religion, but music was not their domain. Probably it faded away together with their language, while musical tradition among their kinsmen in Asia is still very rich. These traces help the artists to reconstruct how the music that came to Poland with the Tatars centuries ago could sound like.

    Concert is a continuation of the Tatar motif of the “9 Languages” album.
