Nowadays, music surrounds us on all sides. The trouble is that in many cases it becomes merely a „filler”, a background of sound, a white noise, in which no melody or song may be distinguished.
Meanwhile for us, the organisers of the Ethno Port Poznań festival, music is something special. We do believe that it can still convey important meanings, and that being a universal language it can bring people together, while the delight and emotion, just as singing and dancing, are not determined by frontiers or ideologies.
Globalisation brought us all closer than ever before, but we still know too little of one another. What is more, the dominant pop culture attempts to make everything uniform by means of homogenous patterns. One can and should go against the phenomenon, discover the diversity, find one’s own roots and learn about the roots of others.
With their tradition behind them, artists from various corners of the world can create a fascinating dialogue of diverse cultures. The performers and the aficionados of ethno music discovered that truth long ago. The discovery stems from the natural need to learn new things, to see the culture of others and from the simple desire to hear new, beautiful music. Today, a more inspiring and exciting musical experience would be hard to find.
Every item on the festival’s programme has been prepared with meticulous care. We wish to invite the listeners to an encounter with the work of artists whose achievement is outstanding and indisputably valuable. At times, the music will be coarse and austere, true to what has been played for generations past, alternating with contemporary, state-of-the-art sound and arrangement solutions. Music that will rouse to dance and inspire reflection. Yet whatever the form, a genuine, meaningful tale will always be there. If you want to listen in to those tales, join us for the Ethno Port Poznań!
6th edition of the festival will be held from 7 to 9 June 2013.
