Upojenie (English: Rapture) is a 2002 collaboration between Polish folk and jazz singer Anna Maria Jopek and jazz guitarist Pat Metheny, recorded in Warsaw, Poland. It features Jopek's compositions and traditional folk song arrangements, as well as some of Metheny's well known tracks, such as "Are You Going with Me?" and "Follow Me". Finally, there is "Polskie drogi" ("Polish Paths") – a cover of a main theme for a film series of the same title by Andrzej Kurylewicz.

In 2008 an international edition of the album was released by Nonesuch Records; the running order of the selections is different and three additional songs are included.
