POLSKI

THE SOIL

A polyphonic hymn to rural women. A celebration of mature women, who are physically and spiritually connected with the land and united in their singing. Traditional songs performed with passion are juxtaposed with untamed nature. Raw, authentic music expresses strength, a community of women, and an exchange of life experiences. A vibrant, living tradition that stems from mutual learning.
