The Polish ska scene has never been too thriving. You can count the bands regularly releasing new albums on the fingers of one hand. No wonder it’s been already 20 years since the last compilation presenting Polish ska bands was released. SKAsety.PL vol. 1 is the latest attempt to showcase contemporary Polish ska.
Polish ska scene was boiling up when last year Vespa announced that their former singer and saxophonist, Alicja will be joining the band again. The lucky ones witnessed her return during the 3rd edition of Gdańsk Ska Jamboree. Others were still wondering if all this was true. Till this day.
When you’re passing by a ligthened up reindeer while going to work, you’re hearing “Last Christmas” for the fifth time this week, it’s a sign that it’s about time to get down to christmas gifts. If up till now you still didn’t have time to think about it, perhaps RudeMaker’s gift ideas will help you a little. These are the things that would make me or my partner happy, from stores I know and where I shop. Nothing in this article was sponsored (that’s a shame).
Last weekend was gonna be great and I knew that way before it started. First Gdańsk Ska Jamboree was already fantastic and for its second edition promoters planned so much great bands from abroad, that it was even remotely imposssible to imagine, that something could go wrong.
There’s not a lot of events in Poland, which you could proudly call a ska-festival. During the years there were a few initiatives of that kind, but usually they weren’t able to stay for its second, and surely not the third edition. In this context what looks extremely optimistic is Gdańsk Ska Jamboree. Its second edition is gonna take place this weekend.
Last Sunday in Poland we celebrated the 100th anniversary of regaining our country’s independence. That’s the perfect occasion to launch upon the high, international seas and to showcase our website to the rest of the world.
