Songs from the highlands of Poland

The song, "Oj, Maluski" is from an area of Poland called the Podhale, Poland's southernmost region, sometimes referred to as the "Polish highlands". The Podhale is located in the foothills of the Tatra range of the Carpathian mountains.

The region is characterized by a rich tradition of folklore brought there mainly by Polish settlers from the Lesser Poland region further north and partly by Transylvanian settlers in the 14th–17th centuries during their migrations. The name Podhale literally translates as "below the mountain glen".
