Transcript of Polish musical homes

Bożena Muszkalska

Polish Musical Homelands: Siberia, Brazil, Australia

There are two types of imigrants who came from Polish territories to this region:

1) the descendants of political exiles, many since XIX
- Irkutsk, Siberian Usole, Ulan Ude

2) The descendants of voluntary settlers at the end of XIX and about 1910 - Viershina (people from Malopolska region and Dabrowski Coalfield), Pichtynsk (Bug Hollander)

The research was expected to provide answers to the following questions:

What role do the Polish repertoires play in the process of integrating, sustaining, and manifesting the communities of Polish diaspora?

What kind of presence do the repertoires assume in traditional rituals, the sacred sphere, and formal ceremonies organized by state institutions, such as regional celebrations, harvest festivals, tourist events, as well as in the artistic communities, the media, Internet, and everyday public space: at school, on the streets, and in private homes?

How did the performed repertoires evolve in the historical process, and how do they function today within cultural zones?

In which situations connected with the celebration of national identity are songs with lyrics in the Polish language replaced with those in the language of a given country?

Since 1994 the author of this presentation with musicology students from the universities in Poznan and in Wroclaw has been carried out investigations of musical traditions of the Polish diaspora groups. The expeditions already took place in Belarus (1994, 1995, 1996, 2013, 2015), Lithuania (1997, 1998 and 2001), Romania (2002), Ukraine (2003, 2004, 2005), Siberia (2006, 2011), Brazil (2009), Turkey (2014) and Australia (2015).
