Through this great aural tradition, Shavnabada bring a programme of cultural enlightenment and share their traditions alongside a fresh sounding programme of music by Polish choral composers Karol Szymanowski (1882-1937), Henryk Górecki (1933 -), emerging Polish choral composer Pawel Lukaszewski (1968 -) and Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849) who's 200th anniversary we continue to celebrate.
