About Kirszenbaum

The Krakow duo enlivens the postfolk ruins, sets fresh directions for them and throws them straight onto loopers, with a Slavic touch, colliding Tom Waits and Junip. Zola screams at the klezmers, Henry Miller dances with the Mummins and the result is a melancholic intertextual carousel. The artists have appeared many times on Radio Krakow and Radio Two, Four and Three of the Polish Radio, took part in the Folklore Festival, the Summer Film Academy and the Green Zoo Festival, winning the competitions of the Festival Synestezje 2017 and Dragon Folk Fest 2018, have been awarded at the Polish Radio Folk Music Festival “Nowa Tradycja” 2018 and the Festival FAMA 2018, have recorded clips for Vintage Sessions, Backyard Music and SoFar Sounds Kraków, have performed on the stage of the Karol Szymanowski Concert Studio of the Polish Radio. They opened concerts of such artists as Fisz Emade Tworzywo, Fifidroki, Wadada, Żywiołak, the Canadian project Yamantaka//Sonic Titan or the Warsaw Village Band and played several dozen concerts throughout Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia.

In terms of music, the highly eclectic style of the project is based on close cooperation of guitars, post-rock violins and live recorded loops. All this contributes to a contemporary and very specific interpretation of Slavic, Klezmer and Anglo-Saxon folklore, watered with a dynamic, whispering and screaming vocal duo. A skilled ear will catch the influences of such artists as Fink, Andrew Bird, Warren Ellis, late Tom Waits or early Nick Cave, a skilled eye will notice the play with more or less classical positions of silent cinema, early SF cinema and others, and a skilled reader will see the intertextual juggling with literary references in the textual layer, from Albert Camus and Franz Kafka, through Tove Jansson and Gombrowicz, to even Terry Pratchett.
