Sutari was created by three singers, instrumentalists and performers: Basia Songin, Kasia Kapela and Zosia Zembrzuska – continuing the strong tradition of women singing in Polish folk music. Their work set a new direction in thinking about traditional music in Poland. They experiment with various vocal techniques, polyphony, traditional Polish rhythms, and explore the musical potential of everyday objects used as a instruments. They arrange traditional Polish songs as well as compose their own, based on various female musical traditions. Their main instruments, in addition to their voices, are the violin, Polish frame drum and the wolf bass, a combination of the Polish basetla and viola da gamba, designed by Basia Songin. Lithuanian inspiration brought them kankles, an instrument that for centuries accompanied the Sutartines, which are songs included on the UNESCO heritage list.
In 2015, the group was selected to present their work at the largest international world music fair WOMEX 2015 in Budapest and is one of the very few Polish and European groups to have recorded a musical session at cult American radio station KEXP.
Sutari’s new Album will be released in summer 2020. This time, apart from the interpretation of traditional Polish songs, there will also be new compositions and lyrics by Sutari – trance and polyphonic – engaging in artistic dialogue with folk traditions, woven around themes of nature, sisterhood, freedom and femininity. The artists remain loyal to the sources of Polish traditional music as their inspirations, but they also benefit from the experience of working with other artists from around the world.
The group made their debut in 2012 at Polish Radio’s „New Tradition” Folk Festival, where they won the jury’s second prize and the audience award. Soon thereafter, they were declared „Most Interesting New Group of 2012” by journalists specializing in ethno/folk/world music. They won the 10th „Battle of the Bands”, a competition organized by Music Network, one of the largest world music publishers.
