Make music not war


Album Across Africa and Asia with Kolberg portrays the unusual musical fusions. It features the material recorded in Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Pakistan, Algeria, Senegal, Korea and Poland between 2011 and 2014. It is the first project designed to create musical fusions of traditional culture of Poland (mainly Mazovia) and selected African and Asian countries. It combines the results of innovative work on promoting and presenting Polish folk music in Africa and Asia with artistic education. During the workshops organized in each of the mentioned places, I taught selected folk repertoire to the local communities and next transformed it into African-Polish and Asian-Polish fusions. Some of the album's tracks appear as studio versions, others were recorded live.


Lutoslavs  Maria Pomianowska's Orchestra Lutoslavs

The project on CD present the music of the great composers from the perspective of the modern man's expectations. Although his works are the highest expressions of artistic creation, they have not yet reached the vast audience, which does not listen to classical music often. My project aims to change this situation. Due to its innovatory content, it is addressed to the broad spectrum of recipients, who listen not only to classical music, but also to other genres, such as jazz, pop or world music. The program presents Lutoslawski's music in a manner never used before. The pieces on the CD will contain a compilation the three main subjects directly connected to the  composer's work: tradition (folk sources in his compositions; chosen works of Lutoslawski along with Polish folk melodies performed on folk intruments), composition (original pieces of the composer arranged for  non-classical instruments, both European and non-European) and inspiration (creation of copyright pieces based on chosen works of W. Lutoslawski)

Two headed dragon Pomianowska & Kinior

One of the most amazing musical projects of 2014 in Poland.

Two-Headed Dragon is a project devoid of any cultural context; it is an emotional and expressive tale composed of previously unused abilities of Polish old instruments, paired with ambient arrangements. Fans of Maria Pomianowska will find a few well-known folk songs here, however presented in a totally unusual way, different from what they have been given a chance to hear until now. Lovers of Kinior's saxophone will discover his spatial, deep musical interpretations, as well as some new pieces.

Maria Pomianowska- fiddle, suka, morin khuur, gadulka, vocal

Kinior-saxophone, clarinet, percussions, electronic arrangements


Tunisia-Poland. Rawabit-Bounds.


Rawabit-Bonds. In the search for that, what connects"  which was held in the dates of 17-26 of November 2012 in Tunis.

During the creation of the project the poetry of Czeslaw Milosz, Wislawa Szymborska, Zbigniew Herbert and Adam Asnyk was used, both in Polish and Arabic. Realisation: concert recorded on DVD (2012)
