      A must have for world music lovers

      People's Spring (Wiosna Luda) is the 2nd album by the band Kapela ze wsi Warszawa (Warsaw Village Band) it was released in 2002 and received good reviews worldwide a year or two later. The band are well appreciated by folk and world music lovers and the band really go out of their way to bring back a traditional sound.

      The music is unlike any of the older music because they fuse various sounds from throughout Poland, in particular rare mountain sounds and Jewish klezmer music. Despite vocals being in Polish this hasn't seem to have been an obstacle for most listeners as they certainly have a worldwide fan base.

      This particular album is not quite as amazingly rare sounding as their last one but it still evokes a world in the way it was through the use of such instruments like the suka (a flute used with fingernails which was more or less completely retired before violin player Sylwia Swiatkowska took it up), much of the vocals are in an incredibly loud and clear voice, a method used by mountain shepherds in the past to communicate with one another and the majority of lyrics are folk related. My personal favourite is probably the progressive track To you Kasiunia but Who is Getting Married is a widely respected track and probably considered the best.

      The band have a new album coming out shortly, which I hope to be able to review as well!
