Can anyone recommend some Polish musicians with an easy-listening, jazzy kind of music? I'm familiar with the punkier side of Polish music thanks to my Polish friends but I prefer something more mellow. I have cds by Anna Maria Jopek and Grzegorz Turnau and love them to bits, but I've played them almost to death by now.
Also, if anyone knows a good place to acquire these cds, that'd be much appreciated too. Dziękuję!
I might suggest John Porter and Anita Lipnicka. They are a couple, and while he is English, he has been living in Poland since 1976. It's fairly easy-going music.
Thanks for that, they're really good. I really like this one:
I'll keep an ear out for them.
Not really my kind of music, but Maria Peszek had good reviews and her music is sort of easy to listen to but not really pop
You might like Czesław Śpiewa, although he has a good bit more uptempo stuff too.
try merlin.pl for CD's. They deliver to Ireland I think.
As for some new music, try the following
A lot of these artists are on Youtube
A good website to sign up for would be http://www.artpolonia.org/
They host a good few Polish musicians in Ireland.
Just thought of a couple more:
Both are generally easy going music.
One other is Urszula (Urszula Kasprzak) who is a bit more pop-rock based.
I have to admit that I am basing my suggestions on my Polish wife's collection
Check out the Dzem group.
Dzem and Lipnicka for someone asking about jazz? Wow
Try rather these:
- Michal Tokaj
- Leszek Mozdzer
- Tomasz Stanko
boyz and doda are very good lol only messing
I did check Doda out a while ago when she was in the news about some Jesus thing or other. "Nie Daj Się," hmm, I took that advice and moved right along.
Those are fantastic, softmee, thanks!
No problem. It made me think how polish language sounds like if you dont understand it. Do you?
I would love to hear it that way once.
Some more :
( i wasn't listening to any music at all for too long, its time to go back to this i think, so thanks for reminding)
