  • Biography We sing folksonfs and national songs from Poland in Polish. These are songs that have been sung for generations in Poland. They are sung whenever Polish people get together. These songs were collected by artists from the villages themselves and performed by national folk groups. Our choir heard them growing up and now would like to share them with others. This keeps the traditions alive in our families and communities. The Poles have a saying, "I've travelled all over the world, but haven't found any music that could match what we have in Poland."
