I want to help
Babooshki formed as a band organically in 2009.
The thing that brought these young and talented musicians together is a passion to find common ground between the neighbouring countries of Poland and the Ukraine on a cultural as well as musical level.
Their common history and traditions are stored in original, and full of charm, melodies.
These melodies include Christmas carols and pastorals, some of them almost completely forgotten, living only in the memories of the inhabitants of small villages in the Eastern Borderlands (Kresy).
The band have endeavoured to introduce the music derived from their common Slavic roots. With a hypnotic combination of jazz, acoustic sounds and harmonies the band have made a return to the richness of old traditions and the heritage of their homes.
