Friday 15 February 2019 Kapela Maliszów , a Polish folk group, will perform at Muziekpublique's Molière Theatre.

Kapela Maliszow is a family band comprising multi-instrumentalist Jan MALISZ and his children – Zuzanna and Kacper. The band is inspired by traditional music of their region: folk songs and dance music from many different regions of Poland. The music is traditionally performed “archaic style” on a violin, a basolia (a folk instrument similar to a cello) and a drum, with a great degree of freedom, joy and improvisation – it’s not just an academic reconstruction of old melodies.

Kapela Maliszow also compose their own music, inspired by Polish tradition and characterised by their distinctive style – influenced by jazz and world music. Apart from making music, the band also make instruments. In his workshop, Jan Malisz builds violins, hurdy-gurdys, nyckelharpas, pipes and many others.

After the break, the Belgian-Syrian Damast Duo (Jonas Malfliet and Shalan Alhamwy) joins the group. Kapela Maliszów played together with Damast at the Garden of Sounds festival in Katowice and it caught on.
