A world music singing group – Laboratorium Pieśni ( ang. Song Laboratory) – is performing in Morecambe this summer! An unforgettable experience of native rhythms & harmonies will take you gently somewhere far away from all ordinary and well-known spaces, sounds and impressions. In the end of summer 2015 Laboratorium Pieśni became popular thanks to songs 'Sztoj pa moru', 'Ulisi' or 'Rosna livada' they posted on YouTube. Millions of followers felt in love with their music. This summer they're coming to tour England.
We invite you to join the polyphonic journey with traditional songs from different countries and regions, arranged by a singing group from Poland with shaman drums, shruti box and other ethnic instruments.
We will travel together through Ukraine, Belarus, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Poland and many other countries, though enchanted forests, fields, villages, seas and rivers. Come and experience this female, wild and intuitive energy!
Laboratorium Pieśni (Song Laboratory) is the group of female singers from Poland, created in 2013. Using traditional, polyphonic singing they perform songs from all over the world, mainly: Ukraine, Balkans, Poland, Belarus, Georgia, Scandinavia and many other places. They sing a cappella as well as with shaman drums and other ethnic instruments (shruti box, kalimba, flute, gong, zaphir and koshi chimes, singing bowls, rattles etc), creating a new space in a traditional song, adding voice improvisations, inspired by sounds of nature, often intuitive, wild and feminine.
The traditional songs are often brought from their source - different regions of Poland, Europe and world, by the members of the group - having their unique history and evolving in the course of work. Finally they are performed in a new form - traditional and pure or unconventional and enriched.
