Pola Chobot and Adam Baran will play in Poznan’s Meskalina on the 17th of January.
Pola is a singer and songwriter. Adam is a guitarist and an avid chess player. The songs they create, with their simplicity and transience, refer to the blues, but often go beyond its classical form. During concerts, they innovatively use means such as looper and percussive instruments, creating pulsing and psychedelic improvisations. Their sources of inspiration are equally indigenous “work songs”, Muddy Waters, Skip James, as Bjork and Radiohead. They are laureates of several music awards, among others: the Festival of Young Talents in Szczecin (II prize), the Festival Akademia Gitary in Poznań and the winners of the Grand Prix of the most important blues competitions in the country. Honored with the title Discovery of the year 2017 in a survey of readers of the quarterly Twój Blues.
