The Market Square and the Old Town in Kraków attract many artists of all sorts. The most visible and heard are musicians. They play single or in bands and their instruments range from a simple recorder to a giant cello. Most of them play for money - the box which holds an instrument is lying on the street wit ha clear intention to collect coins, seldom banknotes. I think money is important for them but there is still something more to it - namely, the audience. It is a sort of challenge and test for an artist to play and successfully attract the attention of hundreds of people strolling in the Old Town. The police and municipal guards do not intervene, so, everybody can try, provided they do not use electric sound system.
This band play Jewish music as a live advertisement of Jewish Culture Festival in Kazimierz - a district of Kraków.
This band dressed in traditional Kraków folk costumes play..... traditional Polish folk music, of course.
The band play all-button accordeons. They are probably from some Eastern country.
This poor man plays very simple music on his recorder.
The boy plays quite pleasant classical music. Bach? Paganini?
