Čači Vorba - "true speech" in the Romani language (related to Gypsy songs).

With a well-acclaimed performance at the British "WOMAD Festival 2014" (BBC3 Stage), a double-scored Songlines' "Top of the World" mark (2010 & 2011), the "German Record Critics' Award" (2010), the Polish "Folk Phonogram of the Year" (2011/12), and more than 400 concerts in 19 countries, Čači Vorba is one of the most recognized folk/world-music bands from Poland of the last few years.

Their original blend of impassionately and expertly treated tradition (Gypsy, Carpathian, Balkan), own compositions, and musical "remakes" full of elements of jazz, rock, classical, or film music, results in Čači Vorba's refreshing approach to Gypsy music, far from the beaten paths of brass bands, Balkan-beat, or sequin stylization. The band's own "Gypsy fusion" of styles and genres, performed on acoustic traditional instruments, gives a multi-layered mixture of ethnic trance, rock dynamics, subtle jazzy harmonies, and a psychedelic-like space, all tied in by the charismatic voice of the group's soloist, Maria Natanson. The singer and violin player, as a teenager, ran off to the Carpathian mountains in search of living village music. There she met and lived with Roma musicians, learned songs, the language, and soaked up their musical sensibility. Nowadays, she's considered one of the most notable female voices of the Polish world-music scene, easily moving between several types of East European singing and being one of the very few gadji (non-Gypsy) artists creating her own lyrics in the Romani language.
