Polish Singer and Arts Manager
I’m a singer born and raised in Katowice, Poland. I hold master degree in Communications from the University of Silesia in Poland, but I also studied Ethnomusicology at the University of Warsaw, focusing mostly on Polish traditional music and the world music.
I’m currently studying the Arts Administration and Cultural Management at Humber College. I've lived and traveled around Europe, the Middle East and Asia and in 2016 my travelling spirit brought my voice and music to Canada.
Since then I am an active member of the Toronto world and folk music community, organizing many different cultural events. As a founder, lead singer and manager of Polky I perform Eastern European folk songs. I am also a co-founder, singer and percussionist of Blisk, new all-female world music group in Toronto featuring singers, dancers and percussionists from Poland, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
I was studying traditional voice techniques under a supervision of Witek Kozlowski, Basia Wilinska, Wronika Grozdew - Kolacinska, Tzvetanka Varmiezova, Marichka Marchyk and more!
My voice and music was featured by the Songlines Magazine in 2016 on their Silesian Roots Compilation, Polish-Celtic group Beltaine on their album Mjusik, Katowice own folk band Blokowioska and their EP Radio Katowice. In 2016 I released my own EP called I float featuring original songs. I recently recorded an EP Immigration with Polky and we’re releasing our first full-length CD in 2019.
I enjoy working with female singers of different backgrounds in Toronto! My recent collaborations include: BRIGA, Lenka Lichtenberg, Lauren Barnett, and more! I have sung in about 20 languages.
I recently started my journey as an Arts Manager in Toronto. I would love to work with newcomer artists and world music groups, helping them to build their skills and grow their audiences in Toronto, Canada and the world.
