Tęgie Chłopy band, established in 2013, has performed at some of the top Polish folk festivals, including Cross Culture Festival in Warsaw, CODES – The Festival of Traditional and Avant-garde Music in Lublin, Crossroads Festival in Cracow, Festival of Folk Bands and Singers in Kazimierz Dolny, also in the Szczecin Philharmonics, Polish Radio, Polish National TV (TVP Kultura, TVP 2) and many other prominent events related to folk music. Now, the band's aim is to go with it's unique music abroad and share it with other cultures. Currently the band is working on it's new album, focusing on traditional wedding music.
The band continues the traditions of live dance music of Kielce region, Central Poland. The general aim of the band is to revive the music that used to be performed in the villages in the old days. Kielce region is known for its brass orchestras -– that is why Tęgie Chłopy include a strong brass section. The members of the band are the disciples of village musicians. One of their most important masters is Stanisław Witkowski from Opatów, an 80-years old clarinet player. The band’s members put effort and attention to recall the sound and characteristic groove of the village music and give it a second life, bringing back its erstwhile practical function.
