They play just as they feel - soundly and happily. In their music there is everything - joy and musing, everyday work, smell of fresh clover, taste of spring water and the most joyful and cleanest youth.
It is a completely new youth "band" with real rock guts, though playing "without power and upstream". It is famous for its vigorous violins and lively drums and the singing "shouting" with wild verve what everyone has in mind about virginity.
Their first album is an invitation to "Hopsasa Classic Polo", featuring only traditional songs from the heart of Poland. The record was considered the folk album of 1998 by the listeners of Polish Radio 3 and the rebellious magazine Brum. No wonder as the album presents the modern, dynamic bio-techno style and, at the same time, is so Polish and "wellseasoned" as old, good and strong wine. The young people discovered in the land on the Vistula River the native, shamanic layers, which wake up the remains of the surviving Polish genetic code and hypnotize crowds to exhaustion until daylight (as during the first major concert in 1997 "Przystanek Olecko"). They are favorites of the audience and receive prizes from both the audience and jurors of numerous competitions, begining from "New Tradition '98" organized by the Polish Radio.
They are ultra rebellious, playing the so-called "hard core from the barn" on traditional Polish instruments and singing in the dialect of "white" peasants from our "farms and plantations". As if that was not enough, they are invited to established musical events, such as Probaltica '99 that is the 6th Festival of Music and Art of Baltic Countries or Toru®? Meetings with Chopin. They got second prize of German "Folk World 2000" scene.
