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.
