Kontraburger


Hailing from Warsaw, this band generically tagged as 'art folk' have gathered that before putting out a debut album, it would be best to make a name for themselves first. And so they did. Two years after having been established as a group, KONTRABURGER performed in 2001 at one of the most important Polish folk festivals where they were actually granted the first prize. From then on, several more festival attendances followed including Tanz & FolkFest in Germany and New Tradition in Poland, plus a much awaited album in 2002. Read more on Last.fm

The seven-piece (Maga - vocals; Malgorzata Litwinowicz - flute; Jarek Kaczmarek and Wojciech Stasiak - acoustic guitars; Sylwia Świątkowska - violin; Tomasz Żur - bass guitar; Janusz Kossakowski - percussion) recorded their self-titled and thus far sole album with the help of Malgorzata Madejska who provided additional vocals, and who eventually joined the band as a full-time member. "Kontraburger" explores a wonderfully eclectic range of sounds: form celtic notes to oriental flavoured modulations or from psych to flamenco bits, creating a surprisingly cohesive musical mosaic, which saw the band elaborate a unique personal style on the music scene. Highly recommended to prog folk fans, fantasy enthusiasts, as well as eclectic music devotees in general. Kontraburger official website: http://www.studnia.org/Kontra/zespol_a.htm Written by Lizzy.
