Joint project of Maria Pomianowska's ensemble and Korean band Pungryjiak, titled "Korea-Poland Project Chopin & Arirang", was presented at the 2015 Crossroads Festival in Kraków.
The inspiration for the project, which combines the musical traditions of Poland and Korea, was the fact that the triple metre, known in Poland as the 'mazurka rhythm', is common for both cultures. During their concert in Jeonju, the musicians presented both Polish and Korean compositions, while at the climax of the show a specially-prepared piece mixing Chopin’s Mazurka, Op. 68, No. 3 with 'Arirang', one of the greatest Korean folk songs, was performed.
In July 2015, Polish and Korean artists met again to present the programme "Chopin & Arirang" and lead workshops at the Crossroads Festival in Kraków. The musicians from both countries seemed to understand each other without words. During their final concert at the Museum of Municipal Engineering in Kraków the hall was filled to the brim, and the performance ended with a standing ovation. In 2016, Polish-Korean music project will be continued. Maria Pomianowska with her ensemble, a group of Polish dancers and the Pungryjiak band will present another music and dance programme inspired by the traditions of both countries - Poland and Korea.
