More Musical Musings August 13, 2006Posted by Amanda in Travel Diary.
We are in Wroclaw, which is a smaller city in Poland with a very nice town square. We are trying to chill out here for a couple of days rather than frantically seeing everything.
Today we saw musical performances from two rather different groups. The first group was three accordian players who were amazing. They made the accordians sound like an orchestra and were incredibly passionate about their music. We stood and watched them for ages and were even tempted to buy a CD. The accordian requires so much dexterity- the accordians that this trio were playing required either buttons or a keyboard to be played on either side at the same time, the bellows to be worked and there was also a part on the top to play other notes by blowing into them (or so it appeared). I don’t know how they mange to perform all these things at once. It really was one of those very special moments.
The second group were a bit more bizarre … a mariachi band in Poland playing Jason Donavan’s “Sealed with a Kiss”. Let’s say no more about that one.
