I am entertaining thoughts of moving to Poland in about a year, most likely Warsaw...
Can anyone enlighten me about the music scene in Poland...I am an experienced guitarist/composer & also do arranging...I primarily play jazz/'world music' (Middle-Eastern,Indian etc.) but also jazz & blues/rock...is there any work for musicians in Poland?...I have found a couple of websites that are quite interesting as far as jazz goes, both more traditional & experimental...if someone can recommend a Polish bulletin-board or other means of getting info on this, or help in contacting Polish musicians, it would help me...can a musician make at least some money there?

Wroclaw seems to have a lot of music festivals, music of various types, so you might find something here. Also, there are some recording studios, so again, Wroclaw might be worth a try.

I think poster 'glowa' is the man to talk to.

I'm on the level of MTV crap but I know that Kraków has good jazz.

Merged: Unsigned and local music scenes in Poland

Hi

I'm moving to Lublin in October and as a freelance session musican from England, I'd be v. interested in playing with some bands in Poland, if the opportunity arises.

Does anyone have any experience of the unsigned and local music scenes in PL? Except for the obvious prefered musical styles (pop, metal, europop etc), are indie/mod/retro genres popular in Poland?

Cheers

Not really, I guess. I think there's quite aggressive competition on the unsigned music scene. But I could be wrong.

What type of music? You can check out Morphine Klub. They usually have live rock. Valhalla for some harder stuff and maybe some goth. Piwnica 21 has live music sometimes. Blue note might have some jazz, but has hip hop mostly on weekends. Maybe you can find sth here.
