Traditional Polish Music
Polish folk music was collected in the 19th century by Oskar Kolberg, as part of a wave of Polish national revival. With the coming of the world wars and then the Communist state, folk traditions were oppressed or subsumed into state-approved folk ensembles. The most famous of the state ensembles are Mazowsze and Śląsk, both of which still perform. Though these bands had a regional touch to their output, the overall sound was a homogenized mixture of Polish styles. There were more authentic state-supported groups, such as Słowianki, but the Communist sanitized image of folk music made the whole field seem unhip to young audiences, and many traditions dwindled rapidly.

Polish dance music, especially the mazurka and polonaise, were popularized by Frederick Chopin, and they soon spread across Europe and elsewhere. These are triple time dances, while five-beat forms are more common in the northeast and duple-time dances like the krakowiak come from the south. The polonaise comes from the French word for Polish to identify its origin among the Polish aristocracy, who had adapted the dance from a slower walking dance called chodzony. The polonaise then re-entered the scene and became an integral part of Polish music.

TEKST PIOSENKI: POLSKIE KWIATY
Śpiewa ci obcy wiatr, zachwyca piękny świat
A serce tęskni
Bo gdzieś daleko stąd został rodzinny dom
Tam jest najpiękniej

Tam właśnie teraz zakwitły kwiaty
Stokrotki, fiołki, kaczeńce i maki
Pod polskim niebem, w szczerym polu wyrosły
Ojczyste kwiaty. W ich zapachu, urodzie jest Polska

Żeby tak jeszcze raz ujrzeć ojczysty las
Pola i łąki
I do matczynych rąk przynieść z zielonych łąk
Rozkwitłe pąki

Bo najpiękniejsze są polskie kwiaty
Stokrotki, fiołki, kaczeńce i maki
Pod polskim niebem, w szczerym polu wyrosły
Ojczyste kwiaty. W ich zapachu, urodzie jest Polska

Śpiewa ci obcy wiatr, tułaczy los cię gna
Hen, gdzieś po świecie
Zabierz ze sobą w świat, zabierz z rodzinnych stron
Mały bukiecik

Weź z tą piosenką bukiecik kwiatów
Stokrotek, fiołków, kaczeńców i maków
Pod polskim niebem, w szczerym polu wyrosły
Ojczyste kwiaty. W ich zapachu, urodzie jest Polska

Bo najpiękniejsze są polskie kwiaty
Stokrotki, fiołki, kaczeńce i maki
Pod polskim niebem, w szczerym polu wyrosły
Ojczyste kwiaty. W ich zapachu, urodzie jest 

Jedliniok was created in 1975. The group takes its name from a Lower Silesian dance from Jedlina-Zdrój. The members of the ensemble are students of the Agricultural University of Wrocław and other university centers in Wrocław. Not only does the ensemble perform the Silesian folklore, for example Lower Silesian, Upper Silesian, Cieszynski and Opolski Silesian, Beskid Slajski, Zaglebie Dabrowskie, but also from other Polish regions like Beskid Zywiecki, in the area of Nowy Sacz and Opoczno. Also national Polish dances - polonaise, mazur and krakowiak are included in their repertoire. The ensemble gives performances during very important cultural events in the city and it attends festivals, outdoor activities, reviews and university student celebrations. The group has performed in many countries and in different continents, representing Poland in numerous famous international folk festivals.
