Pokusa – live stream | Different Sounds Zone
If not for the pandemic, we would meet you at concerts in Błonia during East of Culture – Different Sounds between 25-28 June. COVID-19 has turned the entire world upside down, forcing us to move the festival to 3-6 September. We strongly believe that we will see you there. For the time being, as we do not want to leave you without music and the festival for the whole summer, we are launching Different Sounds Zone online. We want to invite you to special concerts streamed live straight from the auditorium inside Workshops of Culture in Lublin at Grodzka 5a. We promise you the concerts will rock.
Different Sounds Zone: Pokusa
When: 26 June 2020, 19.00
Where: live-streaming at www.innebrzmienia.eu from the auditorium inside Workshops of Culture in Lublin. We also invite you to watch concerts together in cafés and restaurants in the Old Town. The transmissions will be available in Café Próba at Grodzka 5a, Trybunalska City Pub at Rynek 4 and Hades Szeroka at Grodzka 21
The band to open this extra concert series on Friday 26 June is fresh blood in the Polish improvised music scene. The trio Pokusa comprising Natan Kryszk (baritone saxophone). Tymek Bryndal (bass) and Teo Olter (percussion) has been active since 2012, successfully emerging on the jazz scene in Poland and beyond. During this time, the band has performed many concerts, taken part in prestigious festivals, released 2 original albums and started many collaborations with musicians of the Polish improvised music and jazz scene. The year 2020 marked the release of the material from the recording session Live Sesh, available on Bandcamp and a cassette published by Dreamland Syndicate – the first in the “Live at Pogłos” series. The band draws inspirations from jazz, traditional, improvised, electronic, experimental music and pop and hip-hop. As impossible as it may seem, all these fascinations are not only heard in the work of Pokusa, but they also create the band’s unmistakable style, based on musical feistiness, boldness, unrestrained expression and unique sound, revealing the artists’ ties to alternative music rather than strictly jazz.
Different Sounds Zone is a year-round series of concerts, inextricably linked with the festival East of Culture – Different Sounds. The Zone presents original performers, the most interesting independent labels, and various music genres with their arresting combinations. It will be no different on 26 and 27 June when thanks to our guests, Pokusa and Świetliki, we will delve into improvised music and poetic psycho rock. This time, we will stream the concerts right into your homes via the Internet, but we promise you they will not follow the simple format we have grown accustomed to during the pandemic.
Online Different Sounds Zone will be accompanied by a completely new initiative – a series of videocasts introducing various music genres and styles associated with the Polish alternative scene. They will correspond with the concert series, weaving a rich tale about Polish music, the featured genres and trends, and forming a video dictionary of Polish music. Music experts, journalists and event producers will be our guides.
