‘A Postcard From the Yiddishland’ - a concert at the Wrocław Synagogue

This Sunday, 18 August, at 5 pm, the vocalist Karolina Cicha will give a concert entitled ‘A Postcard from the Yiddishland’ at the White Stork Synagogue in Wrocław.

The concert comprises songs composed by Cicha from the works by Jewish poets from the Podlasie region: Chaim Siemiatycki, Rabbi Elizer Szulman from Tykocin and Morris Rosenfeld from Sejny. They are accompanied by songs devoted to specific places, such as ‘Bialystok main heim’, and traditional Jewish songs typical of the Podlasie region.


Karolina Cicha takes her inspiration from Klezmer music. In addition to modern samplers and loopers, also ethnic instruments such as morin khurr, dutar, Jew’s harp, duduk, accordion, flute and mandola will be played. You will also hear archaic harmonic overtone singing.
