I hope this is a sign that Poles are getting it right when it comes to how they portray themselves to be. Who cares whether or not that’s in line with being “Western?” At least it’s authentic, which is in itself something of a rarity these days:)

The future is now so dance with it baby!

Babcias rock! I think the song and the group are terrific.

Stare Babcie have come out of hiding from deepest Lubelszczyzna – not far from Chelm is where we have Polska rzeczywistosc – yes that is the real Polska. All this modernity nonsense that we are repeatedly force fed with, day after day – Warsaw trying to vie with ‘modern’ Dallas – get real folks – reaL Polska is in Chelm and wioska’s in its vicinity – will they emerge out of this feudal age into the contemporary day?? I wonder! EURO 2012, much heralded as a spotlight to efficient, modern, upto date ‘intel centrino’ Polska, is garbage – it will still take Polska a geeration or two to come to recognise itself for what it is – introverted, brooding, sleepy, and then to mature out of premenstrual teenage into adulthood. When that happens, the Babcie’s songs will have a meaning – today the Babcia’s with their absurd la la la is just a good mirror. Aby do wiosne !! Back to the laka, with the cows….

If it is done tongue-in-cheek I think it will be great, otherwise it is (as the article states) ‘backwards and unsophisticated’.

If it is marketed to be ironic and a poke at the west’s image of Poland, then it will demonstrate Poland’s sense of humour and that it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

It’s very funny, very different from the pop or r&b stuff everyone else expects. KOKO SPOKO MAKES EVERYONE LAUGH – how good is that!
