A titled vocalist, songwriter, the subject of critics' admiration, jazz teacher, laureate of competitions with six albums and cooperations with such artists as Wróblewski, Muniak, Śmietana, Wojtasik, Maseli or Karolak. Emotional woman who appreciates the importance of a witty punch line. Feeding on extremes, she smiles less often then she bursts with laughter. An artistic personality well contrasted within its clear outlines.

19:30 SALK - Audio dumplings from the bottom of the sea

An electronic deep-sea fish, created by three musicians and a poet. The band was formed at the end of 2015 in Krakow and in the fifth month of its existence it joined the ranks of the Warsaw NEXTPOP label. SALK believes in the equality of music and words and that the Polish song is still a good song. The industry pages of BRAND NEW ANTHEM together with SO MUSIC hailed them as the greatest musical hope for 2017. Their music led SALK to perform at the Open'er Festival, OFF Festival and to Iceland. Media and fans often mention SALK because of the band's style of communicating with fans through social media. Browsing their websites one can feel like they are becoming a member of a secret tribe that lives deep under the water and feeds mainly on dumplings.

Mateusz Kołakowski Piano Improvised




.


Mateusz Kołakowski - piano solo

A virtuoso pianist whose colorful biography would lead many into a trap of pride. Although his talent put him on pedestals meant for winners of numerous and prestigious awards, in spite of his artistry being gloryfied by journalists while he was still in his boyhood, he did not renounce the virtue of modesty. An example of an artists who treats his work of splendor with a healthy distance. A scholarship holder of Berklee School of Music who performed in Asia, Africa, America and Europe. Single-hearted and straightforward. He definitely likes to play a hard poker.

Gao Ping Voice Piano




.



Gao Ping - piano solo

Composer-pianist, born in Sichuan province, known for evocative textures and piano vocalization. A musician affected by China’s concurrent transformation from a collective to a market economy. The Chinese modern history's transitional phase between old and new and the productive cultural clash between East and West left traces that would later manifest in his music. As a pianist, Gao Ping’s repertoire is extensive. He has performed in many corners of the world. A professor in composition at the Conservatory of Music-Capital Normal University as well as a guest-professor at the China Conservatory of Music in Beijing. A hell of a colorful personality shaped by the culture of Far East.

Immortal Onion




.



Immortal Onion, a band from Tri-City, was founded in 2016. Their work inspired by the music of Esbjörn Svensson, Hiromi Uehara and Tigrana Hamasyana is difficult to classify, though eclectic. In their songs you can hear influences of jazz, film music, minimalism, fusion, electronic music, progressive metal. In spite of such stylistic discrepencies they managed to create their own recognizable language. They owe their characteristic sound to skilful combination of extremes with elements of minimalism. Ostinato people with vocation!

Ziemowit Klimek - bass, electronic
Tomir Śpiołek - piano
Wojtek Warmijak - drums
