I come from Poland. Since 2006 I've been living in Prague,Czech Republic, where I'm now doing PhD studies in Theatre Academy DAMU in Prague.
2007 - Warsaw University, direction: cultural science in Institute of Polish Culture, specialization: cultural animation
2004 - Theatre Academy Gardzienice (research of traditional music from Ukraine, Romania, Bugaria as a base by bulding perfomace)
My music interests is the traditional song and its connection with conteporary perception. In my music work I focuse on the dialog between the tradition and the modern styles , the collective way of singing (still alive in Balkans, less in my counry, unfortunatelly) and the personal expression.
I consider the traditional songs (from Western borders of Poland, Balkans and Slavic countries) as a common mother tongue for a many european countries as a source of creating the contemporary values in music and performances
In Prague I sing in a band KORJEN - with musicians from Bosna, Slovenia, Poland and Czech. Traditional songs from different countries (especially Middle European and Balkans) are inspiration to arrange them in our culturura context; in this way we share our music heritage, discover the ethnic patterns from diverse cultures as a point if departure in searching for our own music language.
