Here is a short article and a video of mini-recital by Maria Pomianowska playing suka – Polish ancient precursor of violin.  Mrs Pomianowska is an incredible musician and a music professor who dedicated her talents to unearthing and popularizing forgotten Polish instruments and folk music  as well as discovering connections between traditional music of Europe and Asia.
