Together with an organising committee made up of neighbours, aviators and fire fighters we invite the residents of Poznań to the beautiful park of Głuszyn to take part in a series of exciting activities including a micro expedition to the Głuszynka valley, artistic and sports animations for children and adults, presentations of local artists and musicians, a fire truck show and a presentation of a pilot’s uniform. Let’s fly high together and take-off from reality into a world of dreams. Local eateries will provide food and refreshments during the picnic.
The highlight of the picnic will be a concert by Fanfara Awantura – a crazy, ten-person-strong brass band that steals the traditional tunes from the Balkans, Turkey, the Middle East and India only to mix them with the help of the inventions of 21st century music. The band transplants these traditional melodies into the Polish ground and blends them with the traditions of the Polish school of jazz and post-romantic references to Slavic melodics.
FETLER WITH KARPIŃSKI, KOŃ, FANFARA AWANTURA
Three ensembles co-created by Michał Fetler will saturate the get-together-hungry reality with sounds and positive energy: elements of contemporary Romani music, blues, contemporary jazz and psytrance. They will give an exclusively acoustic performance without any sound system support. Michał Fetler is the founder of the Poznań-based projects Polmuz and Fanfara Awantura (vel Tsigunz), and a saxophonist in Jazz Band Młynarski Masecki.
Flying High – Locality Festival
The Flying High project was born out of a reflection on the once neighbouring localities of Głuszyn and Krzesiny, today separated by the 31st Tactical Air Base. We will hold a series of open air activities to symbolically restore the neighbourly relationship between these two districts of Poznań. The residents of the region are invited to take part in the project, build an imaginary bridge over the air base and explore the dreams and crazy ideas hiding in their heads. The project is developed in collaboration with the City of Poznań as part of the Fyrtle (Localities) programme aimed at strengthening local communities.
