Banda Nella Nebbia

Winners of the Grand Prix of Polish Radio New Tradition Folk Music Festival 2015 brings music never heard before in our circles! This explosive mix, enchanting with its blend of energy, precision of performance, spontaneity and discipline, is bound to be outstanding.

Banda Nella Nebbia is a band started by the composer an bassist Franciszek Szpilman. He has
invited musicians from Sejny and Warsaw to join him. Their music intertwines elemental jazz and notes of avant-jazz with rock dynamism and influences of traditional music. Listeners are reminded of works by Frank Zappa, John Zorn and the rock group Primus. And there are plenty more connotations.

The clear artistic vision brought to New Tradition by Banda Nella Nebbia earned Szpilman the
Czesław Niemen Prize, awarded to outstanding personalities. The musician immerses himself fully in stage presentation, performing daring bass guitar parts while conducting his colleagues at the same time.
