about

'Dansing' is the debut album of the Polish trad group Tęgie Chłopy.

The album showcases all the things that we love about traditional music: the simplicity of form, the sincerity of expression, the drive and vitality, the enthusiasm, the irresistible call to dance, and our joy on discovering the rolling open fields of a hitherto unmapped land.

This is the music of Kielce region, characterised by meandering melodies, encompassing a broad spectrum of sound and colour, as full as full can be of joy, and yet shot through with yearning and remorse.

Featured alongside us on the album is the brightest jewel in this crown, none other than Stanisław Witkowski, our maestro and teacher, a man whose memory seems to know no bounds, a multi-instrumentalist, and leading light of the once famous Witkowski Brothers Band, a group synonymous in their day with weddings, balls and dances east of Kielce near and around Łagów and Opatów villages.

Their repertoire included various traditional rhythms, the 'chłop', for example, a sort of fling, also simply known as 'śpiwa', 'song'. They also played polkas, and other dances prevalent during that era, the good old tango, popular both in cities and in the country, and of course, waltzes and foxtrots. Our musical journey, 'Dansing', is an echo of those golden years.

Under the name Tęgie Chłopy, we've been playing this repertoire for some years now wherever people wear their dancing shoes, in various towns and cities, and in the local villages, a big band with a big sound, and a wind-section to raise the roof.

While remaining part of a tradition, our music is full on, in your face, pulsating and bullishly contemporary. Straight from the heart, never shy, this is swing and groove played with the youthful fervour of our time.
