Tuesday, July 10: KidBrown Ensemble
8 very different people from 8 different musical worlds meet on 1 small stage. The project is even more unusual since 2 women face-off with 6 men. The ladies lead the project, write the music and give it their sometimes delicate and sometimes not-so- delicate character. 6 free and not set in a mold musicians follow their ideas and interpret the waves differently. Original music, simple texts about life and truth. Lots of vocal and instrumental improvisation.
Wednesday, July 11: Beavers
The roots of this band is sung poetry but now due to the character of the sounds produced together they do acoustic original songs. Their inspiration is too wide to note but it’s worthwhile to add that the band is made up of jazz, reggae, rock and illustration musicians
Thursday, July 12:Soundrise:Unknown Niemen
This group is unique in Poland. They present the repertoire of Czesław Niemen, one of Poland’s best singer-songwriters, in today’s musical language using lots of electronics and interesting experimental sounds. They say of themselves, “We try to present Niemen in a way that people of our generation will be interested in the music of this great artist.”
Friday, July 13: João
This band was formed in 2011 by João de Sousa, from Portugal. He spent many years finding his musical path. The creativity of this band leads you through history and experiences that touch us all. The musical inspiration comes from America in the ‘70’s, ’80’s and ‘90’s and runs from acoustic rock through electronic sounds.
Saturday July 14; DUCH: Nieme Filmy (Silent Films)
This band plays their unique sounds to old silent movies. They are described as, “acoustic trip-hop” and have been gaining accolades at festivals and concerts (they play about 100 a year). They are one of few bands, and probably the only one in Poland, who play this type of hypnotizing material combined with the unusual visuals.
