The ensemble Zrodlo was formed in 2001 as a result of Father Adam Filas’ initiative. As the pastor of a newly formed parish in Brampton, St. Eugene De Mazenod, father Filas wanted the newly formed congregation to be rooted in the faith and traditions of its fathers and forefathers. It is through music, song and dance that the members of Zrodl foster, nurture and bring to the forefront the beauty of Polish folklore. In its repertoire, the Zrodlo ensemble has songs and dances from various regions of Poland, such as: Kujawy , Warsaw, Lowicz, Krakow, Rzeszow, Lublin and Slask. There are also national dances such as the Polonez and Mazurek along with ethnic dances that portray the cultures of the Roma peoples and Canadian Aboriginals, more specifically, the Metis.
