Poland, 1971, progressive folk, poezja śpiewana, folk rock
Poetry married to rock music in the form of poezja śpiewana, so as to escape the anti-Western music censors. Music conceived in the minds of forward-thinking students dreaming of a different world as they lived behind the Iron Curtain. Violin, flute, and delicate acoustic guitar carry the beauty of this classic album. Other than the lyrics themselves, the vocal choral moments communicate the strongest Polish atmosphere.
