We are pleased with Monika Lidke’s latest World/Jazz album ‘Gdyby każdy z nas…’.
This is the London based folk-jazz singer-songwriter third album, her first ever project exclusively in Polish, her native language. In this love-letter to her mother tongue, Monika takes us on a journey, having created sublime musical arrangements to the poems of contemporary Polish poet – Andrzej Ballo. Performed by Poland’s best jazz musicians and the singer’s UK based band, the depth and the ever-changing moods of the lyrics allowed Monika to express a wide range of emotions and ideas.
Monika creates exciting and original music that truly connects with the audience. Her songs blend jazz and folk with Polish and French roots to create a mesmerizing live show. She and her band have performed at high profile venues and festivals including London Jazz Festival, Manchester Jazz Festival, Rhythms of the World Festival, The Forum London, Ronnie Scott’s Bar and Pizza Express Soho.
Monika has appeared extensively on Polish National TV and radio. One of her compositions, (Tum tum song) has been featured on the compilation album Smooth Jazz Café vol. 13 released by Universal, and Monika was nominated Artiste of the Week on Heart FM Spain.
