From ArtsEmerson

For over 120 years, Poland was partitioned and its national identity erased from the map of the world. When a group of young artists unearth a motherlode of folk songs and classic compositions from that period, they discover their true cultural inheritance. With a surprisingly contemporary lens, To the Source takes audiences on a harmonically thrilling journey to the musical Rosetta Stone of great Polish composers such as Chopin and Szymanowski. It’s a sung-through evening built on fresh approaches to classic Polish folk songs that is sure to ignite a range of emotions. With a smart, sexy, infectious appeal, these artists share their delight at uncovering their own cultural DNA, one song at a time.
