Pre performance of this music took place in Niigata in 2000 .There together with YoYoMa she presented to the public an outcome of her efforts to brake barriers between cultures by connecting her experiences with Asian music with her own cultural heritage. Together with Dr. Ewa Dahlig and violin maker A. Kuczkowski she managed to successfully reconstruct SUKA from Bilgoraj and FIDEL from Plock.
Suka is a string instrument, similar to violin. It is held in a vertical position, resting on the knee of the musician or hung on a strap. The strings are stopped not by pressure but by side touch of the nail. Since 2008 she plays with the legend of Russian music - Boris Grebenschikov and the Aquarium.
