Laboratorium Pieśni :: Hé oyáte tour :: 20 May 2023 @Dominicuskerk Amsterdam
After two concerts in one day for a very limited amount of people during the crazy c-period in 2020 Laboratorium Pieśni / Song Laboratory is returning to AMSTERDAM to sing the songs of the roots and hearts in female polyphony, celebrating the birth of the newest album of the group, “Hé Oyáte”!
There is a song that is always waiting for you. It reminds you of the simplest things. Open your heart, expand your understanding, and open yourself to the primal memory of who you really are. You are the song and the song is you. Take a deep breath and release it. It will become a wild river that will fill your life, taking you to the source.
This song is your life.
Our Tribe! We would love to invite you to a concert celebrating the music of the World and Universe – the newest, upcoming “Hé oyáte” album, filled with polyphonic traditional songs of different cultures, as well as original intuitive compositions, dreamed-up words, melodies and stories, in the rhythm of shamanic drums, nature sounds and Earth’s pulse. Let’s honour our paths and let’s meet within the music, to sing, dance, breathe, and connect with our own truth and heart, in the lightness of a leaf dancing in the wind, in the flow of the river of life, power and wisdom of ancient forests.
Ticketsales has started. We can not wait to sing and dance together with you!
About Laboratorium Pieśni
Laboratorium Pieśni – Song Laboratory (world/ethno/spiritual/mystic folk music) is a female group of singers from Poland, created in 2013. Using traditional, polyphonic singing they perform songs from all over the world, mainly: Ukraine, Balkans, Belarus, Georgia, Scandinavia, Poland and many other places. They sing a capella as well as with shaman drums and other ethnic instruments (shruti box, kalimba, flute, gong, zaphir and koshi chimes, singing bowls, rattles etc.), creating a new space in a traditional song, adding voice improvisations, inspired by sounds of nature, often intuitive, wild and feminine.
The traditional songs are often brought from their source – different regions of Poland, Europe and world, by the members of the group – having their unique history and evolving in the course of work. Finally, they are performed in a new form – traditional or enriched.
The group is also creating theatre performances, where using traditional songs they tell stories about disappearing rites: ‘Pory Roku’ (Seasons) 2013, ‘Puste Noce – Pieśni, które już się kończą’ (Empty Nights – Songs that have come to an end) 2014.
Laboratorium Pieśni collaborated with Polish valued and known musicians, for example on a project with Kayah and composer Atanas Valkov, participated in album recordings and concerts “GOOD L.U.C.K”, by L.U.C artist, performed in the concert organized by Andrzej Smolik: “We Chose Freedom” and City of Sopot Birthday, along with other Polish musicians.
The “Rasti” album of the group was nominated for the Fryderyk 2020 award, in the category “Album of the year – World music”.
The group has visited over 15 countries with concerts and workshops (for example: USA, India, Switzerland, Japan, Spain, Israel, Iceland, Denmark, The Netherlands, France, United Kingdom). The video with the Belarusian song ‘Sztoj pa moru’ has reached over 13 mln views, and the group is followed by more than 150 thousand fans on Facebook.

High Chai Tea House
High Chai Teahouse is a mobile teahouse that you will encounter at all our HeartFire concerts. Come home from your trip to the concert and get to meet old and new acquaintances in this dreamy Victorian ambiance. At the bar you can order the tastiest quality products from the Chai Angels.
The hand-brewed Chai Tea has grown famous, and you can only get it here. You will also find yogi tea, fresh mint, ginger and lemon tea. Not to mention all the sweet treats…. Both raw vegan and home-baked cakes, brownies and refreshing authentic drinks.
This bohemian atmosphere bar was designed by Ilona Dorgelo. The High Chai once started when Ilona made cake and chai for friends with a heartbreak. With the theater school and three-star restaurant De Librije as a background, this accidentally grew into a serious concept at our HeartFire concerts.
