La Mitomani – Winner Simcha Prize 2014

Delighted by the richness and diversity of Europe’s musical culture, five Polish students of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague decided to found the ensemble La Mitomani. Their repertoire consists of well-known melodies in their own arrangements, as well as improvised and illustrative music. Along with outstanding instrumental skills, the musicians have an innovative attitude towards the folk style. They try to attract their listeners’ attention by an intriguing musical energy…

La Mitomani has been performing since November 2012. From the very beginning, the ensemble has played music in multiple styles: folk sounds are often interspersed between jazz, free improvisation or classic virtuoso passages. During a concert, one can hear klezmer or balkan melodies, songs from the 20’s, canticles from northern Poland or even avant-garde contemporary music
