Olly Riva (The Magnetics): Ska, jazz, soul, dirty reggae and Tom Waits

Two years ago, Italians from The Magnetics played their first concert in Poland, at the second edition of the Gdańsk Ska Jamboree festival. They liked it so much that they decided to come back. Tomorrow, we’ll have a chance to check how their sound has changed over the last 3 years. And as an appetizer before the gig, we recommend the transcript of a conversation we had in 2018 with the vocalist and founder of the group, Olly Riva.

Gdańsk Ska Jamboree vol. 4 – ska in the shipyard

The last two years went by with hardly any concerts and festivals. There have been very few ska related music events in Poland, and travelling abroad has been difficult. But there is light at the end of the tunnel – the fourth edition of Gdańsk Ska Jamboree.

Gdańsk Ska Jamboree vol. 2

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.
