An energetic and high spirited social dance, Polka originated among the peasants of eastern Bohemia in the 1830's. Traveling by way of immigrants in the late 1920's, contemporary Polka swept into America's ballrooms and theaters and was composed for ballets and operas. This recording brings new life to 14 all-time favorite Polkas, arranged by Craig Duncan and veteran polka accordionist Michael Zikovich.
