“Once in Japan I moved Polish folk tune ‘Hej Przeleciał Ptaszek’ [A Little Bird Flew By] into pentatonic scale. It all worked out. So many paths, beliefs, viewpoints, ways of seeing, hearing and sensing the world — and always one Music, a language overcoming divisions.”

A band of friends and passionate musicians. They’re also frontmen of their own formidable bands.

“The freedom and boundlessness of imagination is what I love most about those who I stand on stage with,” says Jopek. And she addes quickly, “Only fulfilled artists can be genuine givers. In music, we work on open heart.”

“ULOTNE” [ELUSIVE] BY AMJ AND BM IS RELEASED IN JAPAN!

The album, inspired by Polish folk tunes, is available on CD and on vinyl. Anna Maria Jopek will be making her way to Japan for a promo tour in April 2019. “My strong bond with Japan is thanks to Chopin, no kidding,” says Jopek. “The Japanese sensitivity to Polish scales and the Polish spirit of music has given me, a Pole singing in Polish, the opportunity to become listened to and understood to a greater degree than anywhere else in the world. I truly wish that “Ulotne” would give my Japanese listeners as much joy as signing beside one of the greatest masters of our times had given me.”

DOWNBEAT ABOUT “ULOTNE”!

Review of the “Ulotne” album is going to be in January’s issue of DownBeat, the world’s most important jazz magazine! “Non-English-speaking singers face the challenge of having to express themselves enough to transcend the language barrier for American audiences, but like Celtic vocal explorer Loreena McKennitt, Jopek has the ability to make that barrier immaterial. The meaning of these songs is clear, even if you don’t understand Polish.” James Hale (Downbeat)
