More Than Music

Marta Kaczmarek, Powroty – spotkanie poetycko-muzyczne

Pomysł spotkania poetycko muzycznego „Powroty” narodził się spontanicznie, wlaściwie z potrzeby chwili. Przypadkowe spotkanie, w trakcie którego postanowliśmy z Romanem Syrek, artystą muzykiem cenionym i uwielbianym przez publiczność w Melbourne, wesprzeć Jurka Krysiaka w zbiórce pieniędzy na pomoc w tresurze psów asystujących ludziom niewidomym w Gruzji.

Dołączyła do nas Alicja Syrek i tak oto nadarzyła sie okazja podzielenia się z Państwem, ja moją poezją i piosenkami a Alicja i Roman mistrzowskim, chwytajacym za serce wykonaniem i aranżacją utworów muzycznych. Dlaczego taki tytuł? Ponieważ  powracaliśmy do naszych przeżyć, doświadczeń, obserwacji, tęsknoty i razem z Wami, w głębi serca powracaliśmy do Ojczyzny.

Nagranie pochodzi z jednego ze spotkań. Wykonane przez przyjaciół Michała Kempistego i udzielającego pomocy technicznej Pawła Ragana. Dziękujemy wszystkim, którzy pomogli nam w realizacji spotkań.

POWROTY / MEMORIES – a journey through poetry and music

Directed by Marta KaczmarekThe concept of this poetic and musical performance, Powroty/Memories, was born during a chance meeting between Marta Kaczmarek, Roman Syrek, a much loved and esteemed Melbourne based artist and musician, Alicija Syrek and Jurek Krysiak during a fundraiser that supported the training of guide dogs for the blind in Georgia.

This was an opportunity for Marta to share her poetry and songs and for Alicja and Roman to “share” their masterful, heart-warming performances and arrangements of musical pieces.

The title was inspired by their personal experiences, life observations and longings of returning to their “homeland” which always is present in their hearts.

The recording came from one of their performances and was prepared by their friend, Michal Kempisty along with technical assistance by Pawel Ragan. Marta, Roman and Alicja would like to thank all the people that have assisted them with their performance.
