SUTARI is the power of three female voices and rich musical imagination. The artists continue the traditions of Polish folk singers. 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 instruments. They arrange traditional Polish songs as well as compose their own, based on various female musical traditions.
Sutari was selected to present their work at the largest international world music fair WOMEX 2015 and is one of the very few Polish and European groups to have recorded a musical session at cult American radio station KEXP.
They 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 folk group of 2012 in Poland.
The trio was founded in 2012 and until spring 2020 consisted of Basia Songin, Kasia Kapela and Zosia Zembrzuska.
From spring 2020, Sutari is co-created by:
Basia Songin - voice, Wolf Bass, Owl Viela, drums, percussions, looper
Kasia Kapela - voice, violin, kankle, drums, percussions
Asia Kurzyńska - voice, violin, drums, percussions
