The musicians are all class by itself and it’s being doubled by their unusual charisma. “NewCity” says Megitza Quartet is: “the most impressive to come out of Chicago”. The band is fronted by Malgorzata Babiarz - also an upright bass player - with her strong voice and a Polish Highlander, Gypsy soul; Andreas Kapsalis -an exceptional guitarist of a Greek descent, who uses a unique technique of finger tapping and incorporates his guitar’s body as percussion instrument, together with Marek Lichota - a Polish bayan virtuoso, and all backed by an excellent innovative drummer Jamie Gallagher of an Irish/Italian descent, who uses a hybrid multicultural drum set. With their high energy stage presence Megitza Quartet offers it’s audiences an insurmountable dose of adventure where even without knowing the language anyone can be captivated by their songs , that give a pinch of inspiration, a smile, and a tear… Notable performances: - Chicago World Music Festival - Lotus Festival in Bloomington - Millennium Park, Pritzker Pavilion, Chicago - Cindy Pritzker Auditorium - Old Town School of Folk Music, Chicago Quotes and press: “ [..] this is the kind of music people can’t help but get up to dance to.
