About ZK Collaboration
The project was created in 2016 on the initiative of drummer Adam Zagorski and saxophonist Maciej Kądziela. After years of gaining experience abroad, the musicians returned to their homeland and decided to join forces to realize their musical ideas together. The multitude of inspirations taken by the leaders makes the project extremely interesting, even unique. Adam Zagórski and Maciej Kądziela lived in one city and started cooperation, in which they use their numerous experiences and inspirations, creating music characterized by open harmony and great expression. Thanks to this, they created an original program presenting their common thoughts on improvised music. They also invite other musicians from different countries to participate in the project. The band combines a harmonically complex Dutch hard- bop with a light note of Copenhagen avant-garde and a noticeable inspiration of Polish folk music. They consciously experiment with currents beyond the framework of contemporary music.
