2013 - Joszko Broda "Debora"

Coming soon

2009 - Creatures crawl out of the hole

Can children be familiar with the essence of life and death? Is their "small" daily problems are as difficult as those of the adult world? Is it worth to look into childhood fears, but also humor and energy? Loud, bold "YES" you will hear on the albumJoszko Broda band “Kids with Beard”.

The album "Creatures crawl out of the hole" is part of the kids trend music , but its playful and swinging melodies make us listen to them a little longer , they give a lot to think an adult audience. After the first few bars of the title track, it becomes clear that we have a puck that their recipients are treated seriously and, most importantly, with the idea.

Joszko Broda invited Polish musicians - Wojciech Waglewski (guitar), Arkadiusz Skolik (drums), Cezary Paciorek (accordion) and Hungarian Szabolcs Roka ( bagpipe) and the German Loka Richter (bass). There were also Joszko's ethnic instruments . Children's spontaneous singing with lively music can grab to dance to the rhythm of folk dancing, Mazurek, Krakowiak, tango, polka and waltz. And when you need a sweet harmony and warm words that we hear when we fall asleep – here you are, it helps eaven with the biggest troublemaker.

Just as the kids know how to sing , the musicians know how to play music, Debora Broda once again showed that she know how to write lyrics . This is what she has always been associated with- the world of children, she wrote all the words and the melody of some of the songs. A master of poetry for children sneaks into the prose of life. Among the stories, not-idylls, we do not find "lamb" but "completely wild and unnamed" monsters. All ends well, because "Ninety-nine / It's still not a hundred / Do not be afraid! / The evil has not overcome world ." Joszko Broda points out in an interview for "La Salette": "We wanted to show the direction of a healthy society in which the child needs parents, siblings, in which boys and girls are different and have a different role to play in life, in which the children are doing mess, clean up, and then listen to lullabies, in which a person is convinced that after death the Heaven is waiting for him."

The fifth album “Kids with Beard” is a wonderful combination of deep communication with childlike insouciance and madness, music inspired by the mature folk, rock, jazz with the text understandable for everyone. A great fun or an excuse for a serious talk with the children who just as we, the adults, want to embrace the "land that is not in your head."

2008 - The Danube River. Carols from the East

The fourth album “Kids with Beard” is a unique event. Preceded by a recording audition, which was attended by 12 000 children in the Lublin region. For outstanding musicians playing instruments - Wojciech Waglewski (guitar), Marcin Pospiech (double bass, bass guitar), Piotr "Foot" Żyżelewicz (drums), Cezary Paciorek (accordion) and Hungarian Szabolcs Roca (traditional bagpipe). But most important, the album is a co-operation between musicians and scientists - is the first event of its kind in the history of Polish music.

The CD contains songs, carols and carol singers taken from the archives of ethnolinguistic division of UMCS University.There are the authentic performance of Christmas carols (sung by citizans of Lublin born in the 19th century!) and their modern arrangements, performed by children (including residents of Lublin, but the youngest generation) under the direction of Joszko Broda. In the words of Professor Jerzy Bartmiński, a prominent linguist and folklorist, who helped to make the album: "This is a document of traditional regional singing and recording of new versions -the cultural heritage of Lublin. Young performers return to the traditions of their local patriotism and together try to save from oblivion uniqe extremely valuable Polish repertoire of music and songs."

During the concert in Polish Radio the Studio CD was premiered - the live concert was broadcast by Polish Radio.

2004 - Be prepared!

At the request of the Warsaw Uprising Museum an album "Be prepared" was recorded . The album contains songs from the World War II and the Warsaw occupation period. “Kids with Beard “ with the support of Wojciech Waglewski, Marcin Pospieszalski, Piotr "Foot" Żyżelewicz, Cezary Paciorek and String Quartet “Square” performs 10 songs well known to the older and younger polish generations - who does not know and does not hum to the "Heart in a backpack", "Axes, hoes" or "Palace of Michal "?

The melodies and words are beautiful testimony of people who were able to enjoy every simple thing, despite an uncertain future, and the evil of the war around them . The album "Be prepared" is a modern version of the original songs of these few decades. Drums are interwoven with Jewish melodies, strings straight from the country music , the rhythms of rumba and cha-cha are combined with traditional melodies . All this gives the songs a new character, and still there is no doubt that these are the same songs. The album is testimony to the fact that you can record patriotic material without pathos, without adding another brick to the "wall of our pain." Songs in the new arrangement, sung joyfuly and in children's pure voices are beautiful tribute to the participants of the uprising.

2000 - Almsgiving Fasting

" Almsgiving Fasting" is the music played and sung by the father and son. Joseph Broda, who has been the author of highland folk music for forty years , gave his passion and love to his son Joszko. The album, which is their next joint venture, contains music that runs in their veins, root music , which comes from Silesian Beskids , where the Broda's family lives since the 12th century.

Songs sung a capella are completed by ethnic instruments: four-meter trembita, gaidas, pipes, ocarina, mouth harp ,sheperd's fipple flute, shofar and fasting pipe, which in the culture of the Carpathians was the only instrument which you can play on during the Lent.

The album is a reference to the Joszko and Joseph's roots –Beskids' music roots. But also here we find our true roots: Jesus and Israel. The album talks about the God Father's drama looking at the crucified Son. Who is better to deliver a story then just the father and the son?

The music was recorded in the Dominicans Basilica in Lublin. Beautifully released album, with pictures of the Mount of Beatitudes, the Wailing Wall, panels and ceiling of Nazareth synagogue, was dedicated to John Paul II as an expression of gratitude for the meeting on the Mount of Beatitudes in March 2000.
