"The concert has been cancelled in negotiated term (December 31st, 2005) and place. I cooperated with band`s agency for five months in 2005 and after that period I was informed that the agency decided to negotiate with the other agency in Poland.

TRANSKAPELA is an artistic project of four musicians acting in many areas of traditional music, trying to find its new meaning and contemporary context. Our musical search revolves around the traditional music of various cultural regions: Malopolska, Kurpie, Galicia, Polesie, Bukovina, Hucul Region, Maramures, Transilvania, in which despite the outer formal distinctions we try to seek its roots, common elements and the timeless values. The source music is an inspiration for our own interpretations and compositions. We form our music not on the basis of imitations but on the traditional patterns, in a creative way. The source of inspiration for TRANSKAPELA'S music constitutes the Jewish Culture of the Carpathians encompassing Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia, Romania and Hungary. We are inspired by music of Jewish wandering bands of the 19th and 20th century, known due to the archival records and notes. It's a kind of rural music (the music from small towns and villages), which has formed its specific style. It reaps from the numerous surrounding cultural motives that have a heavy influence on it. The Jewish wandering bands' music of the Carpathians is a medium of the intercultural interactions characteristic for this specific region.
