Polish Folk Music

"Hej, górale, nie bijcie się.
Ma góralka dwa warkocze podzielicie się!"

"Hey hillbilly boys, don't fight.
The girl will dance with BOTH of you!"

The girl has two pigtails, and she will SHARE!

I'm Miodusia, click me!        Hi, I'm Miodusia! The lines you just read are taken from a mountaineer song called "Góralski Taniec". You can hear a "piano" midi version of it HERE. Please excuse the construction on these Polish Folk Songs midi pages. I hope you will enjoy some of the Midis that I have found so far.
    The number that is playing is my "theme song, "Szła Dzieweczka do Laseczka". You can find out a little more about the dress I am wearing by clicking HERE.
   You can find CD's and books about Polish music at the Polish Bookstore.

Here are a few of my favorite folk songs:

Pytala Sie Pani
Góralu czy ci nie żal
Szła Dzieweczka do Laseczka
Płynie Wisła
Czyja to Dziewczyna

These are the best known Kolędy (Carols):

Dzisiaj w Betlejem
Gdy Sie Chrystus Rodzi
Lulajze Jezuniu
Pasterze Mili
PójdĽmy Wszyscy
Przybieżeli do Betlejem
Wsród Nocnej Ciszy
W Żłobie Leży
