Wiejski Dzez [Village jazz] (Unzipped Fly)
cdRoots Code: rwm-maliszow
Kapela Maliszów says "We don't play traditional music, we are tradition!"
Wiejski Dzez" [Village jazz] is testament to the Maliszów's unrelenting urge to explore the types of music not necessarily popular or well received in the rural communities. Village jazz from Męcina Mała is a dreamed up jazz that represents a very unique and individualized approach to harmony. The musicians boldly follow the path chosen on their album "Mazurki niepojete" ["Inconceivable mazurkas"]. Listening to their music you can still discern the trance-like and inconceivable rhythms and melodies of mazurkas, but something different also comes to the surface. It's a longing for a new quality, on the one hand found in unusual harmonies, and more progressive, at times even radical improvisation, on the other – in a deeper immersion in the traditional village music The new music of the Maliszów continues to be filled with Kacper's virtuoso interpretations and the beautiful, maturing voice of Zuzanna. But is also peppered with Jan's ideas, in particular the lively accordion melodies, which could be classed as examples of "new village music".
This CD was a RootsWorld Music of the Month selection in January, 2018. Your purchase supports the radio program and magazine.
