Hej sokoly

 Recently I saw a nicely choreographed YT-video (2016) about Polish sabre fencing. [1]


 The whole fight choreography was very decent and pleasant, but the most enjoyable part of it was the song of a Polish poet-songwriter, Tomasz Padura. His song -- Hej Sokoly -- is still popular in Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia, Belarus and eastern Czech Republic. (Literally: Hey Falcons.)

Grand finale

  There is another, also very pleasant rendition of this famous song by AnnaLu.

  1. While watching the video one would assume that they took somewhere in the Ukraine. In reality it was shot in Siberia by a Russian club of historical fencing in Irkutsk.
