Polmuz (POL)A breakthrough act at Ethno Port Poznań 2017 (the author was there), the double laureate in the 2018 New Tradition completion, Polish Radio’s folk music competition, Polmuz is an ensemble performing contemporary interpretations of Polish folk music. They draw heavily on old recordings, say, shellac records, to which they add hefty doses of primeval improvisation, drum-based and ritual trance passages. Polmuz are creating new narratives out of old motifs from the folk music of Wielkopolska – Poland’s Greater Poland powiat (‘province’) on levels which never crossed that sampling master criminal, Moby’s mind for Play (1999). Strongly recommended.
