In 2000, the "Kapela Ludowa" or "Folk Band" was formed as a part of the Polish American Folk Dance Company under the direction of Mr. Andrzej Buczek. This Folk Band hosts a talented variety of professional musicians from accordion, to bass, to clarinet players, to vocalists and violinists. Our Kapela works along-side the Polish American Folk Dance Company performing with the dancers at concerts, festivals, and balls. It also composes and records Polish Folk songs for our choreographed dances. The Kapela Ludowa has performed with the likes of the Jimmy Stur Band, for elegant affairs at The Kosciuszko Foundation , and at informal venues such as the annual festival at Eisenhower Park.
Our Kapela Ludowa finished recording their first CD, which is currently available for purchase. It is presently working on a 2nd CD, which is expected to be finished with much anticipation just in time for our 70th Anniversary concert in November of this year.
Our Kapela meets about twice weekly, in the Polish heart of New York, Greenpoint. Requirements for joining this folk band are the ability to play an instrument, and a love of music. All are welcomed to join.
