Biography

Matragona – a mountain in the West Bieszczady Mountains of Poland from which group’s name originates. They play atmospheric, self-created music on numerous traditional instruments from all over the world.

Their debut performance was made in l994 in the Sanok Cultural Centre, where they began their career. Since then not only have they been presenting their colourful music at various concerts and festivals all over Poland, but have also recorded for national radio and television programmes, created theatre music and conducted open workshops. Their debut album Budzenie góry gained recognition in a national phonographic contest. The following one, a maxi single Tańce zmierzchu was recorded in a monastery cellars in the Bielany district in Warsaw. The latest album, Trans-Silvaticus, was released in 2005. To its sound contributed 60 different instruments as well as the natural acoustics of Franciscan church in Sanok.

The musicians of the Orkiestra Jednej Góry draw their strength from the Matragona Mountain’s forgotten legend, rediscovered by themselves for their musical fairyland. Because of playing on numerous instruments collected from all over the world, they try to gain the essential knowledge and abilities (e.g. by taking medieval music courses). The combinations in which the instruments are used, however, are not employed in the original musical cultures, hence the individual sound palette.

    dlaczego ? folk jest muzyką na tyle niszową że jest niewielu wykonawców - stąd Varttina i Warsaw Village Band widnieją obok p. Staszka
