The group Kroke was created in 1992 in Krakow on the initiative of three lifelong friends and graduates of the Krakow Academy of Music. Having gone through the successive phases of education in classical music and then fascination with jazz and progressive music, they concentrated on playing and composing within the realm of authentic Jewish music. Each member of Kroke is equally engaged in the creative process of the group. Using traditional material as the foundations on which to build ingenuous arrangements and improvisations, exploiting their previous experiences, transmitting the profundity of man's feelings and nature, Kroke creates new and unique compositions as well a sound which is thus far unheard in Jewish music. In 1993 the group released its' first cassette "Kroke", which was received with an astonishing interest. This resulted in numerous invitations to participate in many festivals and concerts, in intensified work on the improvement of their technique, and - through study of the sacred books - in an investigation of the tradition and philosophy of the Jewish nation. The mystical atmosphere of Krakows' Jewish district Kazimierz, the unshaken dignity of its six-hundred-year-old tradition, reflection on the sufferings of the past, on the present, on hope and trust in man, as well as common creative work found their outcome in the album entitled "Trio" (Oriente RIEN CD 04), which was released in 1996 in Berlin. The music from this album won much praise from the public who attended Kroke's concerts all over Europe and favourable reviews both in Poland and many other countries around the world.
