Composition, transcription: Michał Fetler, Rafał Zapała, substantive and compositional cooperation: Jacek Hałas, Malwina Paszek.

A Wedding in Wielkopolska is a unique tale which adds a surprising twist to folk music from the Wielkopolska Region. The artists use archival recordings and texts, and field research materials collected by ethnomusicologists from Poznań to radically ‘reinterpret’ the region’s traditional music. Each of the artists has developed a separate stage of a ceremony, which they will perform with their guests. Pursuing the performative potential of the ritual, the artists recall and retell it in a lively concert at the Malta finale.
