Laboratorium Pieśni – “Ой ляцелі жураўлі” (Oh, The Cranes Were Flying By).

Hi guys! 🙂

Recently I’ve been trying to find some new and interesting Slavic folk music that I could love, and one of the bands that are among my newest and most liked discoveries iS laboratorium Pieśni. They are from Poland, from Gdańsk more exactly, and this is a band singing traditional folk music, with a bit of a spiritual feel, mostly from Slavic countries and in Slavic languages, but also Balkanian, Caucasian or Scandinavian. The band consists of all females, and they sing either acapella or with some traditional instruments particularly drums. I find their music really powerful and energetic, and like the connection to nature that is present in it and how full of emotions their music is. The song I want to show you is the first song of theirs that I heard and that have drawn my attention to them, and it’s in Belarussian. I think it’s mesmerising!
