Few words about the songs

The "Hej Od Krakowa" album was created having in mind the City of Cracow and its citizens. The authors of the Project, vocalist Nina Wertz and the arranger Jarosław Olszewski present Cracow folk music in a new and unusual form. They give a proof that Cracow folklore is still interesting and very optimistic, and served in a contemporary way will attract the also young generation.
