“Old-timey Singing” are vocal classes conducted based on traditional songs from various regions of Poland, Ukraine, and other Slavic countries. In the singing group, we are going to learn old countryside rite songs (including spring and midsummer night songs) and single and multiple voice lyrical ballads.
Working with songs is working by the ear, without using notes. The basis for the classes are recordings from Jagna Knittel’s field research as well as available music archives.
The classes include work on opening voice, emission, and tradition (folk) singing techniques. They are accompanied by voice and breathing exercises, adapted to the needs of the group and the individual participants.
