Christmas with JazGot
| Songs on the album:The best news
Wonders of all wonders
Great Joy »
In a Christmas time
On a pasture land
Sleep my baby sleep »
The time of glory
A sleeping baby
I choose and I don’t know »
My thoughts with you »
Baby in the cradle
My verge of consciousness »
Angels in heaven
|It is nearer from mountains to heaven for mountaineers – that is why they treat divine topics more often and readily, and carolling is not an empty tradition for them.
JazGot band: Jan Trebunia-Tutka, Andrzej Jarząbek, Robert Czech i Andrzej Polak are such real mountaineers who, when they want to say something, sing and play (violins are one of the most obvious tools of communication in the mountains).
Their music is passionate, flavoured with inspirations, which proves that the music comes from the heart (passionate maybe because it is nearer from the mountains to Budapest than to Warsaw).
„Christmas with Jazgot”” is a collection of pastorals which are compositions where the Bible content is enriched by moral threads and personal reflections.
The authors of these reflections are Mirosław Kowalik, (the producer of the record), Jan Trebunia-Tutka, Izabela Domańska-Kowalik.
Mirosław Kowalik, Andrzej Jarząbek, Jan Trebunia-Tutka composed the music.
Anna Trebunia-Wyrostek, Eugeniu Didic (Moldavia), Thomas Celis Sanchez (Mexico) are music guests who also appeared on this Christmas album.
Wojciech Przybylski, a sound producer, finished the record creative work.
This record is a follow-up cooperation of the musicians whose first album “Mountains in the heart” appeared in November 2010 and was nominated to a music award Frederyk in 2011 in the category of “Album of the Year Folk/Word Music.JazGot band team:Jan Trebunia – Tutka
He comes from a musical family living in the Tatra Mountains, Trebunie Tutki, well- known not only among mountain folklore lovers. He was brought up in Biały Dunajec where he had a lot of opportunities to listen to Tatra Mountain musicians. Masters in Artistic Secondary School in Zakopane taught him violin-making craft. His another passion, apart from playing the violin, is designing clothes and that is why he graduated from Artistic School of Designing Garment in Cracow. He is famous not only for playing a self-made violin but he also performs wearing clothes designed by himself, with a traditional heart-shaped pattern (parzenica) that he has embroidered himself, too. As it was written on Trójka radio web site, Jan would be able to trigger an avalanche with his voice. Those who have had an opportunity to listen to him singing live know about it very well.Andrzej Jarząbek
