ŁOSKOT is one of the most important groups in Poland. Its history is strongly connected with the beginning of the phenomenon of yass scene which is a socio-musical movement founded in the beginning of the 90-ties in Gdańsk. In the beginning the main aim of 'yass' artists was to oppose the rigid monopole of jazz music that existed then in Poland.
A Polish clarinetist born in 1968 in Gdansk. He started playing the clarinet at the age of 8 inspired by the works of such great contemporary Polish composers as Lutoslawski and Gorecki. Founder and leader of several music groups.
Szelest Spadających Papierków (The Rustle of Falling Papers) are legends of the Polish avant-garde. They refused to release any of their music "in any form of medium" for over 20 years (although there are, in fact, some very limited edition concert tapes).
