The recent, 19th edition of the EtnoKraków/Crossroads 2017 Festival confirmed once again that it is one of top world music festivals in Poland and in this part of Europe, not only because of the choice of performers and a long history of the event. The philosophy of the Festival is equally important. Its formula has been consciously perfected for years. It is a story about fascinating roads and crossroads of music. Its concept, organisation and artistic standards show a great care for detail.
