ADAM STRUG

“Kurpie forest songs were used as calls during berry picking, and many other things. They consist of elements that seem distant: romances, bloody ballads, and pieces both educational and lewd. The collection is as extensive as it is not obvious. Musicologists emphasise the uniqueness of the musical scales in this material. I was delighted with the lyricism and inexorable realism,” says Adam Strug. During this year’s festival, the artist will perform this a cappella repertoire.

David Harrington, leader of the legendary Kronos Quartet, said: “I realised his voice was as unique as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s, or Bessie Smith’s in St. Louis Blues. There’s a special quality to that voice, a connection between it and his inner life”.
