Among music groups inspired by traditional music, Reborn is a very special ensemble. Four women belonging to 2 generations are playing reconstructed and formerly forgotten Polish knee chordaphone fiddles (suka). This is the only existing band using such instruments in different sizes. Therefore the concerts of Reborn give a unique opportunity listening to the sound of a past tradition, not to be heard anywhere else. Unusual is the fact that band was created only in Dec 2015 but their CD “Voice of Suka” immediately found itself on the prestigious British Songlines –Top of the World list (April 2017). Reborn features Maria Pomianowska (suka, vocals), Iwona Rapcz (suka, vocals), Patrycja Napierala (percussion, vocals), and Aleksandra Kauf (suka, vocals).
