Gig Information

Polish vocalist and string player Jolanta Kossakowska joins local Wellington musicians for a special concert of ancient, traditional Slavic songs and ethno-jazz.

Jolanta’s own compositions and traditional Polish songs will feature in the concert, arranged specially for an ensemble of local musicians - Joe Callwood (guitar), James Illingworth (keys), Reuben Bradley (drums), Inbal Megiddo (cello) and Dave Wilson (sax).

‘The songs are mostly about special moments in my life - turning points when you have to make crucial decisions about your life. So these are songs about love, death, strong emotions and starting a brand-new life.’

Jolanta Kossakowska plays medieval fiddles, gęśle and baroque violin. She is the frontwoman of MOSAIK, which fuses traditional music of Poland and the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern musical traditions. Together with the band Pochwalone she created the album Czarny War, combining traditional songs and contemporary poetry. She also took part in the ethno-punk R.U.T.A. project, awarded with Polityka’s Passport (category pop music), an annual prestigious Polish award presented by the weekly magazine Polityka.

Jolanta has been a guest performer in numerous international projects and festivals including Euro-Med Festival (HU/PL/SRB), Baltic Masters (DK), Korean–Polish Jazz Mosaics, and No Man’s Land (NZ).
