/About Ziemia Bydgoska/
Folk Song and Dance Ensemble ‘Ziemia Bydgoska’ is one of the largest and oldest folk groups in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. Interestingly, the Ensemble consists of a group of nearly 150 people: children, adolescents and adults. The core of the Ensemble constitutes a group of 50 adult dancers, singers and musicians. The vast majority of them are people who participate in the group as a hobby, developing their interests and vocal or dance skills. Professional musicians also work with the group, who, although educated in the musical art, take up playing in a folk band, contributing to maintaining a high artistic level of the Ensemble.
The Ensemble’s repertoire includes vocal and dance suites from many regions of Poland: from Kujawy, Kaszuby, Łowicz, Kurpie Zielone, Małopolska, Lublin, Beskid Śląski and Żywiecki, Sieradz and Łemkowie. The Ensemble also has in its repertoire, city dances and a historical part with Polish national dances, and military as well as patriotic songs.
