R.U.T.A. (the abbreviation stands for Ruch Utopii, Transcendencji, Anarchii or Reakcyjna Unia Terrorystyczno Artystowska – The Reactionary Terrorist-Artistic Union aka The Movement of Utopia, Transcendence and Anarchy) is a project formed by Maciej Szajkowski known as the founder of Kapela ze Wsi Warszawa (Warsaw Village Band).

He invited singers of legendary Polish punk bands (Paweł Guma Gumola of Moskwa, Robert Robal Matera of Dezerter, Nika of Post Regiment and Hubert Spięty Dobaczewski of Lao Che) to sing archaic lyrics from peasant songs of revolt against the exploitative feudal system. Their music is performed on archaic (medieval fiddle), traditional (saz, baraban drum, violin, Polish frame drum) and acoustic (bass clarinet, saw, double bass) instruments.

R.U.T.A.’s debut CD, GORE: Songs of Rebellion and Misery 16th – 20th century, was released in March 2011 by Karrot Kommando and is often considered to be the most important album in Polish world music since Uprootingby Warsaw Village Band.
