HEMAIL is the famous music duet SzaZa: Szamburski | Zakrocki in cooperation with the best rhythmic section in the universe: Wójciński | Szpura. Another proposal which is to show different faces of music. We want to present artists, who are engaged in projects from many fields of art and music, and use these experiences in their own work; they move freely between the distinctions made between what is classic and what is modern, and thanks to their intensive creative and animatory activity they set one of the main trends of the current music stage.


SzaZa – the Paweł Szamburski | Patryk Zakrocki duet has been active in the scenes of improvisational music and independent art for over 10 years. Their music links extremes: noise and silence, beauty and ugliness, pop, electroacoustic and improvisational music, and modern chamber music. Their concert teeter between improvisational music and performance art.
