The original text:

Disco polo is a musical genre native to Poland, which has existed in its present form since the early 1990s. It was derived from contemporary folk tunes, music from the former eastern territories of Poland influenced by Ukrainian/Belarusan/Russian folk songs (mostly somewhat vulgarised ones played at weddings and feasts) and italo disco. The name itself was conceived by Sawomir Skreta from the group Blue Star as a replacement for an older term, piosenka chodnikowa (sidewalk music) – which originated from the main means of distribution of its recordings in early 1990s – sidewalk stalls on streets and at bazaars. Disco polo could be heard mostly at festivals, weddings or during political campaigning for Polish parliament and presidential elections. Former president Aleksander Kwasniewski was one of the most notable example of a politician who used disco polo during his presidential campaign. Traditional instrumentation came to be replaced by keyboards later in the ’90s, which contributed to a slight change in style, making the songs more similar to modern dance music. The style was extensively marketed by the Polsat TV station, which produced its own disco polo hit list, in a TV show called Disco Relax, although it finally decreased in popularity in the late ’90s, when foreign pop music gained popularity. Disco polo is generally perceived as being simplistic and lacking in artistic value, but it is still enjoyed by people of all ages. In cities like Warsaw, it is often looked down upon as music from the provinces.
