August 30, 2011

Kuba Suchar and Artur Majewski = Mikrokolektyw

It’s going to be a very busy week – in the middle of September – for anybody interested in catching up with what’s exciting in music from Poland. For the first time ever there will be two Polish artists performing in the same week in Madison.  Following the concerts of  three bands from Poland:  Klezmafour (March 2011) and Kwadrofonik and Janusz Prusinowski Trio (September 2010), two other very different musical groups are  enriching Madison’s concert offer.   I mentioned Dikanda’s concert in my previous post.

But on Sunday the 18th of  September Au, 2011 at 7:30 pm, Audio For the Arts presents concert by Mikrokolektyw – a trumpet, drums , electronics based Polish jazz duo. They released their debut – “Revisit” (2010) on Chicago’s Delmark label.  Their Madison appearance will be their first one of their first 10-day tour.
