    Here is a nice concert video by a Polish interwar revivalist band. (They play songs from the 1920's and 1930's.)

    Here's how Google translates an article about the project:

    "Sentimental fajf" with the Warsaw Sentimental Orchestra is the newest project of a musical formation featuring Mateusz Kowalski from Ostrołęka. The premiere of this musical event took place on Facebook and YouTube on August 15, 2020 at 20.00.

    The musical project refers to the atmosphere of interwar Warsaw and small meetings in a small group, then called from English "fags" - today rather fashionable "houses".

    [...]

    We have made a video recording of the Orchestra's concert, which we will make available on-line free of charge, along with accompanying films with dance lessons and karaoke backings. The concert will be recorded in the stylish and cozy interiors of Willa Mokosza in Mokotów. The artists have also prepared a unique set of musical backgrounds with text, along with sheet music, enabling and promoting the singing of songs from the repertoire of the Orchestra. Thanks to these materials, which will be published at a later date, it will be possible to set up a pre-war-style play in the house - a real "pipe", they add.

    The repertoire of the Sentimental Orchestra includes the most outstanding works of the interwar period, songs from revue, cabaret and film, as well as military and independence pieces.

    (The Polish word is "fajfami" which Google translates to "pipe" - I assume it's some kind of jargon.)

    I went looking for the sheet music but didn't find it yet.
