We Need Your Help Identifying a Song

In his Krakowiak costume.

We need your help to get the name and composer if possible for the music of Salem's Krakowiak character dance.

The Hutt Valley Performing Arts Competition Society's comps in July require that all the dances entered have to have the song name and composer on the entry form.  I have had the music for years as it was from a group dance that Salem's older brother had done.

So please take a look at this video and if you can help we would be very grateful!!!!


A big "THANK YOU" to everyone who has replied to our request for help, especially Alan, Felix and Benni.  We are able to fill out the entry form and will be sending it off soon.

We have decided that it is "Krakowiaczek jenden" by Anonymous.  


  1. Hi Salem,

    it's 'Krakowiaczek jeden' an anonymous folk song. .
    Greetings from sunny, cold Hamburg.

    1. Hi Felix
      Thank you for that. Everyone who has helped have come up with the same answer so it must be correct :-)
      Kindest regards from a very sunny and warm Kapiti Coast, autumn is on it's way.
      Michelle and Salem
