The “Wszystkie Mazurki Świata 2012” (“All the mazurkas of the world”) Festival will take place in Warsaw, Poland, 7-13 May–just days away at the time of this post! I’m excited to be returning to Warsaw, having lived there for several years when I was in my twenties. This time round, I’ll have the chance to enjoy the company of dozens of folk and early music luthiers, as well as hundreds of musicians playing traditional Polish melodies. And if I know the Poles, the singing and dancing will last into the wee hours of the morning! Have a look at the video below to get some sense of what you might find there–concerts, music workshops, an exhibition with a huge variety of instruments, i nie tylko!
