DAGADANA return with their fourth album! Meridian 68 is their most folk-based record so far. Today it’s coming out in Poland, in October it gets all the way to… China!
DAGADANA, for eight years now, have triumphantly merged elements of Ukrainian and Polish culture through jazz, electronic and world music. This time the band have embraced what tends to be overlooked today. Their record collects traditional songs from many regions of Poland (including Kurpie and Wielkopolska), as well as Ukrainian and Lemko folk music. And there’s an exceptional piece recorded in Chinese in collaboration with a band they met in Beijing – North Lab.
At the heart of the new album are folk songs from Poland and Ukraine. DAGADANA found their inspiration in many sources: amongst their families and friends, at ethnic music workshops, as well as on their friends’ and families’ bookshelves.
