In Lower Silesia, examples of old folklore transferred by post-war settlement groups from almost all regions of the Second Polish Republic and from emigration conditions have survived to this day. They come often from time treated today as a mythical past of settlement groups. During the field studies, the oldest songs of the Polish cultural area were found in the Lower Silesian interior. Now the third post-war generation of Lower Silesians transfers them over time. What is the phenomenon of durability of old folk music and are there any chances for its continuation in the future?
