Janusz Prusinowski Trio is a group of five musicians who follow in the traditions of village masters they have personally learned from. But they are also an avant-garde band with their own characteristic sound and language of improvisation. They combine music with dance, and the archaic with the modern.

The Trio’s unique style is distilled from their informed re-interpretations of central Poland’s village music. It brings mazurkas – sung, played, danced, and improvised – to a new, youthful audience.

What contemporary quality can be given to archaic and seemingly simple melodies and rhythms without resorting to trendy samples and loops? Listening to the Trio you can hear how traditional music of Polish villages echoes a variety of genres: the music of Chopin in its melodic pattern and the use of rubato, a shared love of improvisation with blues and jazz, a tonal sophistication shared with 20th century classical and free improv, and the energy and propulsion of rock music.
