The program covers the sacral, multicultural music of Podlaskie region of North-East Poland, which is Karolina Cicha’s birthplace. This is a symbolic border between the diverse and multinational Europe’s eastern and western side, with an interesting and diverse sacral music heritage that was shaped and kept by religions living next to each other for centuries. Orthodox songs with multiple phrases, Saturday klezmer songs, tatar and islamic melodies, catholic religious songs, gregorian songs, tiny fractions of melodies and texts. All this will be heard in Slavic, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew and Polish languages. All this will become one big mosaic of sacral music, a coherent musical material made from centuries of European heritage of religions, cultures, focusing on praise, gratefulness and honour during the process of song selection.
