Another edition of the Folk Stage is a mosaic of cultures, music styles and human stories.

We begin with traditional tunes from Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) region and then we move to rhythm-driven West Africa, we’ll meet with a folk-rock from Wrocław and finally land in ethno-jazz arrangements of Polish traditional songs.
