Voice of suka Reborn


Extraordinarily beautiful.

Bob Spector Congratulations to ForTune for presenting us this treasure! What we have here are lovely tunes with the seeming simplicity of folk music, but newly written and subtly arranged. They range in tone from Western anthems to Carnatic forms. The music is calming but well worth careful listening. And it's done mostly with gorgeous instruments not long ago considered "historical", but now alive largely through Prof. Pomianowska's efforts. Favorite track: Służyłem ja Tobie.

 The project REBORN presents Maria Pomianowska's  original compositions dedicated to old Polish reconstructed instruments. Building on research that, for over 20 years, has had the support of Ewa Dahlig-Turek's vast knowledge, and the masterful hand of luthier Andrzej Kuczkowski, she undertook a challenge of no mean proportions: to recreate the playing techniques used on forgotten, old Polish knee-supported fiddles, the Biłgoraj suka, the Mielec suka, and the Płock fiddle. "Voice of suka" shows  climates of traditional Polish music, reverberations of Persian and Indian melodies, and rhythms of the Middle and Far East.  Thirty years of traveling throughout all of the continents has taught her that simple, old Polish instruments are capable of conversing in all the languages of the world. She inviting us to listen  their sound, reborn - an alphabet for the 21st century

Make music not war


Album Across Africa and Asia with Kolberg portrays the unusual musical fusions. It features the material recorded in Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Pakistan, Algeria, Senegal, Korea and Poland between 2011 and 2014. It is the first project designed to create musical fusions of traditional culture of Poland (mainly Mazovia) and selected African and Asian countries. It combines the results of innovative work on promoting and presenting Polish folk music in Africa and Asia with artistic education. During the workshops organized in each of the mentioned places, I taught selected folk repertoire to the local communities and next transformed it into African-Polish and Asian-Polish fusions. Some of the album's tracks appear as studio versions, others were recorded live.

Warszawa- Dakar


This album is a journey through both space and time. In this meeting of the African continent with the Mazovian Lowlands, we hear a presentation of Polish-Senegalese improvisations,compositions, and aesthetic experiments based on traditional Polish music, as well as African hymns and rhythms sung for centuries. 


Lutoslavs  Maria Pomianowska's Orchestra Lutoslavs

The project on CD present the music of the great composers from the perspective of the modern man's expectations. Although his works are the highest expressions of artistic creation, they have not yet reached the vast audience, which does not listen to classical music often. My project aims to change this situation. Due to its innovatory content, it is addressed to the broad spectrum of recipients, who listen not only to classical music, but also to other genres, such as jazz, pop or world music. The program presents Lutoslawski's music in a manner never used before. The pieces on the CD will contain a compilation the three main subjects directly connected to the  composer's work: tradition (folk sources in his compositions; chosen works of Lutoslawski along with Polish folk melodies performed on folk intruments), composition (original pieces of the composer arranged for  non-classical instruments, both European and non-European) and inspiration (creation of copyright pieces based on chosen works of W. Lutoslawski)
