SUTARI is the power of three female voices and rich musical imagination. The artists continue the traditions of Polish folk singers. Their work set a new direction in thinking about traditional music in Poland. They experiment with various vocal techniques, polyphony, traditional Polish rhythms, and explore the musical potential of everyday objects used as instruments. They arrange traditional Polish songs as well as compose their own, based on various female musical traditions.

Sutari was selected to present their work at the largest international world music fair WOMEX 2015 and is one of the very
few Polish and European groups to have recorded a musical session at cult American radio station KEXP.
They made their debut in 2012 at Polish Radio’s „New Tradition” Folk Festival, where they won the jury’s second prize and the
audience award. Soon thereafter, they were declared most interesting new folk group of 2012 in Poland.

SUTARI released four albums: Wiano (2014) and Osty (2017) and RIVER SISTER (June 2020), TAMOJ (2022). Last two albums were
nominated for the FRYDERYK POLISH MUSIC AWARD 2021 and 2023 in the World Music category.

They also create their own kind of musical theater shows, video-art projects, music for movies, collaborate with musicians from all over the world and lead singing workshops.
