Stanisław Wielanek

Liverpool University Press

This chapter describes Stanisław Wielanek's Szlagiery starej Warszawy: Śpiewnik andrusowski (Hits of Old Warsaw: A Songbook of the Streetwise). Wielanek is the leader of Kapela Warszawska, a street band that usually performs for tips in an underpass near the Hotel Forum in the centre of Warsaw. They play mainly pre-war Warsaw urban folk music. Wielanek's 500-page volume contains a richness of material that is not only musical—including both scores and lyrics—but also literary and iconographic: from cabaret monologues and vignettes, jokes, bon mots, and biographical and contextual information, to drawings, posters, photographs, and postcards. Alongside old Warsaw songs and criminal or lumpenproletarian ballads, the book includes a separate section on Jewish folklore in Polish which is nearly 100 pages long, and another fifty-page section on Lwów.
