Kapela Lesniakow, Kapela Galicow, Kapela Karpieli Z Koscieliska, Kapela Stanislawa Ogorka, Kapela Pietrasow & Gronicki “Hej Madziar Pije”
from Muzyka Tatr (Tercet 2003) —This piece is in "mountain mode" - basically a major scale with a raised 4th tone. You can find it elsewhere in Europe, but it is very common and typical in the Podhale in Poland.
Ksenia Malec, Warsaw Village Band “Dyscyk”
from Kapela Ze Wsi Warszawa (Kamahuk 1995) —The Warsaw Village Band in their first manifestation. They were not so much interested in reproducing old styles in an authentic manner as presenting the old songs and dances in a way that would reject the merely pretty in favor of intensity and energy.
Czeremosz kapela Romana Kumłyka “Hucułka kołomyjska”
from Czeremosz (Izabelin Studio 2000) —This is a family band that normally plays for weddings, not a "folk ensemble". The idiomatic playing is actually more conducive to the type of progressively faster dances done in the region - "Transcarpathian Ukraine" (Zakarpatskyi Ukraina)
Vasyl Geker, Alexander Fedoriouk, Adrei Pidkivka “Hutzulka”
from Shadows Of Our Forgotten Ancestors (Folk Sounds Records www.folksoundsrecords.com 2001) —This starts a griyo if songs and dances from the Hutzuls (also called "Gutsul" in Russian, although they area a Ukrainian minority group) from northern Bukovina
