In the 1990s, based on only a few centuries-old images and texts, Polish musician and composer Maria Pomianowska painstakingly reconstructed the Biłgoraj suka, a lost medieval ancestor of the modern violin played with an unusual fingernail technique. Since then, she has been crafting a new repertoire for the instrument, blending the plaintive melodies of Polish folk music with the flavors she’s absorbed in her musical travels across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. With earthy vocals and a small instrumental ensemble, she spins a hypnotic musical experience that invokes powerful ancient spirits.
