Maria Pomianowska and Reborn
Maria Pomianowska and Reborn
Maria Pomianowska is an outstanding multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and composer from Poland, dedicated to string instruments both classic and contemporary. Initially a cellist by training, Maria is also a masterful sarangi player and is renowned for resurrecting the suka and the Plock fiddle (traditional Polish instruments dating back to the Middle Ages).

Among music groups inspired by traditional music, Reborn is a very special ensemble. Four women belonging to 2 generations are playing reconstructed and formerly forgotten Polish knee chordophone fiddles, precursors to the modern violin. This is the only existing band using such instruments in different sizes. Therefore, Reborn’s concerts give a unique opportunity listening to the sound of a past tradition, not to be heard anywhere else. Though the band was created in December 2015 their CD "Voice of Suka" immediately found itself on the prestigious British Songlines -Top of the World list (April 2017)

Reborn was formed to showcase the music of another era. Their search into the past has created music for the present that reflects the distinctive qualities of these medieval instruments whose origins are lost in the shrouds of time. Fortunately for us, we can hear what the instruments might have sounded like in those days through the striking renaissance of the music via Maria Pomianowska and ReBorn.
