Warsaw Village Band started out in 1999 with fourteen-year-old cellist Maja Kleszcz on the cello. With their second cd “People’s Spring” the group started gaining worldwide recognition and played in places as far-flung as Alaska, Japan, Taiwan, Portugal, Moscow and Paris – to exuberant reviews. From the start, they elicited enthusiastic responses from rock audiences and traditionalists alike. They were commissioned to write music for video games, movie sound tracks and theatre productions. The British BBC honored the band with a sixty-minute portrait which has since been broadcast in several European countries.
