Ewa Demarczyk

Born in Kraków in 1941, Ewa Demarczyk studied acting and pianio. In 1962 she started her co-operation with Piwnica Pod Baranami, a theatrical and experimental group of composers setting poetry to music. Ewa began performing solo in 1966, bringing her experimental theatre background to songs that ranged from demonic and triumphant to desperate and fragile.

A friend of mine gave me a stack of old Polish psych records that he saved from someone's trash up in Toronto. After I picked through what I wanted to keep (Czerwone Gitary, Czeslaw Niemen, Budka Suflera, etc.) I was left with a stack of Ewa Demarczyk records as well as vinyl by similar Polish artists. I dunno how hard these are to come by but if you or any of your readers want them I'd be happy to hook you up for the price of postage. I'd rather have them go to someone who actually enjoys them rather than have them get destroyed in a thrift shop donation box. Contact me at if you're interested.

This is exceptionally good music. Thanks for your blog and for introducing me to this.

Alas, I'm sure those rare singles are long gone.
