about

Deep Polka brings out the vitality and variety of the Polka and related European-derived dance music played by bands throughout the upper Midwest today. Although little known outside this region, these important and enduring music traditions bring thousands of people together to dance almost every weekend. Outstanding selections from recordings by seven bands, representing seven distinct regional traditions—"Dutchman," Norwegian, Polish, Tamburitza, Slovenian, Finnish, and Czech—demonstrate the deep musical and cultural roots that are so significant to its participants. Extensive notes, song texts, translations, bibliography, discography. 62 Minutes.
