Enchantment

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth,” read the opening words of the Book of Genesis, forming a fundamental basis of existence for billions of people around the world. The organisers of the 7xGospel Festival (14-20 October) also reach for Genesis in search of mysterious, universal, captivating truths. Gospel music, rooted in African-American Christian hymns dating back centuries, has been growing in popularity in Poland in recent years. The 14th festival dedicated to the music opens with an Evening of Worship at the Church of St Florian. The concerts that follow introduce different takes on gospel: on 15 October we will trace its history from negro spiritual standards to contemporary jazz and funk genres during the Jam Session, on 16 October we will hear Gospel A Cappella, and on 17 October we switch to acoustic accompaniment with Gospel Unplugged. The three-day long workshops run by Gabi Gąsior and Volney Morgan culminate with the performance by the Krakow Mass Choir during the finale concert at Kijów.Centrum (20 October). (Bartosz Suchecki, ”Karnet”)
