Tutki Family Folk Group from Poland
Trebunie – Tutki performing at the First International Folk Dance and music Festival organized by ICCR on 14th of October, at the Kamani Auditorium in New Delhi.
Trebunie-Tutki is the first Polish group that has been repeatedly present at the World Music Charts Europe created the European Broadcasting Union.
The group members are faithful to the tradition of local highlanders, but this fact does not prevent them from being creative. By using traditional instruments and basing on musical shape and character of the highlanders’ music they have created New Highlander Music. They developed new melodies and texts telling about contemporary problems as well as avant-garde arrangement. They cooperate with artists such as: Twinkle Brothers – the reggae group from Jamaica, Ordo Sakhna – the group from Kyrgyzstan, Andrew Cronshaw from England, to list a few.
Cooperation with Adrian Sherwood from London, African Head Charge, Twinkle Brothers and Włodzimierz Kiniorski resulted in creation of the album “In Sherwood” that was nominated for a Fryderyk Music Award in Poland whilst in Europe was recognized as the third album on the EBU World Music Chart of the decade.
Trebunie-Tutki, the family group, welcomes to their world of the Tatra mountains, to the music journey showing roots of the Podhale region, that they bring to contemporary realities. Original instruments play a very important role here: shepherds’ flutes and pipes, złóbcoki – narrow old-fiddle, koza – a local bagpipe, trombita – the long wooden trumpet, sheep bells, basy – three-stringed Podhale fiddle bass and traditional wyskanie – glissando of woman’s voice, shepherds’ calls and whistling. Poetic texts of songs are written in the same way as music, according to traditional patterns, short but expressing a single full-emotional thought. They not only concern traditional and contemporary way of living, but they are also a tribute to great classics of Polish music-Chopin, literature – Wyspiański, Tetmajer as well as to the author of Tischner’s “History of philosophy”.
Trebunie Tutki show how New Highlander Music comes into existing in Poland, music which is not in opposition to traditional one, but its natural continuation. Although highlanders’ lives and surroundings are constantly changing, it does not mean that the modern highlanders do not take pride in their identity.
In Delhi Trebunie -Tutki will perform after Cossak Folk group from Russia on 14th of October. Organiser ICCR with support of the Polish Institute New Delhi.
