The Karuzela Group is the name of international ensemble which was created especially for the purpose of playing the classical songs, the „standards“ of the Polish songbook.

The songs which will be performed by the Karuzela ensemble were created mainly between 1950s and 1990s by the most talented Polish poets and composers. Undeniably Agnieszka Osiecka is the icon of Polish pop, jazz, folk and theatre songs and a woman whose life and poetry continues to fascinate audiences and musicians of the younger and older generations. The project combines several moods and types of music - jazz, folk, country & classical.The songs are retold in new musical arrangements with new poetic renditions in Norwegian as well as the polish originals.
