‘Born to a Polish mother and Scottish-English father, Katy Carr has become fascinated by her Polish roots and the country’s history during the Second World War. Her last album, Paszport, matched history lessons with strong melodies, and the new set, released this month, broadens the range with stories about Charlie Chaplin and his Polish fiancee or the West’s betrayal of Poland at Yalta. This is the title track, a love song to the country the Romans called Polonia.’

This video was filmed at the Collegium Maius (Latin for “Great College”,) which is oldest building of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow ( est 1364) and was purchased with funds bequeathed by Queen Jadwiga of Poland. Notable alumni include the Polish astronomer Mikołaj Kopernik (Nicolaus Copernicus 1473–1543).
