MUSIC by MAGDA PISKORCZYK
Magda's music is her own tasteful arrangement of blues, gospel, soul, jazz and rock standards as well as modern songs inspired by these genres. She creates the music which is deeply set in the tradition and is innovative at the same time. Full of true emotions and message.

Magda's low, deep, "black" voice suits perfectly blues as well as swing or African melodies, which are also very appealing for Magda. Joy and humour, great emotions and energy are mixed with deep message, melancholy, moving sincerity. Unusual usage of a saxophone, Hammond organ, dobro and other guitars, percussion or other instruments, mixed with her very expressive voice make this music unique and captivating. She regularly involves the audience in collective singing, emotional shouting, clapping hands or clipping fingers.
