Lautari


Lautari is an award-winning ethno-jazz quartet, whose members hail from central and southern Poland. They draw their name from the wandering Romainian musicians, or Gypsies, of the mid-1800’s. Named for lute players back then, historic lautari fostered a rich history that spread among central, southern and eastern Europe and now informs the very contemporary approach by our modern Lautari, who blend traditional folk music with classical composition and jazz improvisation into a unique mix with as many cultural influences as Poland itself has today.

  2. A beautiful piece of music, indeed. Being the stickler for details, that many consider a character flaw, I couldn’t help but observe that there were three musicians, but the description refers to them as a quartet. Maybe that was a reference to the guest drummer” mentioned on the embedded website?
