Lumpeks, French-Polish quartet playing a music at the crossroads between jazz and Polish traditional dance music, is coming back with a second album Polonez. The repertoire of this new opus is the fruit of a field research organised in march 2021 at musicians of different generations.

In the continuity of this oral transmission, the band Lumpeks improvise freely with dance tunes and traditional folksongs. The evocative title reminds both a popular dance in the traditional musicians’ repertoire as well as the famous 80’s car model, as a nod to the band’s trip through the countryside of the Radom region.
