Vołosi is a phenomenon on the world music scene. The band was founded in 2010 when violinist Krzysztof Lasoń and cellist Stanisław Lasoń met three exceptionally talented, traditional musicians deep in the heart of the Carpathian Mountains. Their debut at The New Tradition Festival in 2010 yielded all possible awards. One year later their piece “Dusk” won Svetozar Stracina Grand Prix at The European Broadcasting Union in Bratislava, named the best European folk composition in 2011. In 2012 their CD ranked among the top in the World Music Charts Europe. Since than Vołosi have constantly been on tour. Over the years they have created a genuine style that defies definition: dynamic, full of passion and sophisticated at the same time. By exceeding the limits of string instruments, they went far beyond that, achieving something unique, growing out of the Carpathian roots, yet modern, powerful and emotional. Their music is influenced by rock, jazz, world, ambient and film music, resulting in beautiful, moody and haunting melodies that will leave you captivated. But Vołosi is not just about mellow tunes, they also bring a strong dose of energy that will make you move and groove. They played over 820 concerts all around the world being hosted by the most prestigious concert halls and festivals. Their concerts were broadcasted by the BBC, WDR3, Polish Radio 2 and 3, Ö1 and Korean MBC. Even though their music sounds familiar, it really is entirely original and inimitable.
