Orkiestra św. Mikołaja - Folk from Poland

The Saint Nicholas Orchestra is an amazing folk band from Poland. Their instrumental repertoire covers anything from traditional Central European instruments like violin over Hungarian koboz to Perso-Turkic dutar and saz. They reminded me of the Warsaw Village Band but yet different of course. In any case a really interesting band:) ENJOY!

Download some mp3s on their website!

Ptaky - Polish Rock

This band is the recommendation of our reader Michał from Poland! I say thank you and enjoy!

Raimundos - Mulher de Fases

Raimundos is one of the best Brazilian hardcore bands, most active in the late 90's. They mix up rock and música nordestina (from Brazilian Northeast). This is their song Mulher de Fases.
