In this exclusive UK date, Poland’s Warsaw Village Band bring their thrilling hardcore folk to Leeds in time for a summer party.
Traditional Slavic melodies, drone harmonies and klezmer influences are thrown together with wild rhythms bordering on reggae, to create a unique sound that redefines Polish village music. Played on the szuka (knee-violin), cello, dulcimer, hurdygurdy and bababan drum, the band refers to their raw yet accomplished sound as radical roots style and roots music from the ancient to the future.
Winners of the BBC World Music Award and nominated for a Grammy, this show marks the release of their hotly tipped Scandinavian influenced new album Nord.
‘one of the most important bands of world music’ The New York Times
