Magda Piskorczyk & Band – the best Polish blues singer with her band will be hosted by the most famous blues scene in Luxembourg!

Magda Piskorczyk & Band – acknowledged as the best Polish blues singer and multi-instrumentalist, she is known worldwide for the mature and unusual timbre of her voice. Her arrangements of funk, blues, gospel, soul, rock and jazz classics, as well as her original compositions, have been described as "innovative, quirky and fun".

Magda Piskorczyk plays acoustic, electric and bass guitar, as well as percussion. Described in France as “la voix noire et au costume blanc” (Black voice in a white costume). Magda performs music of Afro-American and African heritage. She is a two-time semi-finalist of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, USA, and the Female Vocalist of the Year 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, chosen by readers of the Polish blues quarterly. In 2009 Magda was invited to play with Konoba, an international band performing traditional West African music. She tours regularly with her band, and has performed at numerous festivals almost all over Europe and in Taiwan.

Music of Magda Piskorczyk is her tasteful arrangements of funk, blues, gospel, soul, rock and jazz classics, as well as her original compositions. Despite her music being deeply set in the African-American tradition, it is very personal and innovative at the same time. Joy and humour, great emotions and energy are mixed with deep messages, melancholy and moving sincerity. An unusual, very expressive vocal performance and perfectly matched sounds of guitars, a Hammond organ, a saxophone, percussion or other instruments make this music unique and captivating. Magda is known for her excellent connection with the audience, leading them to collective singing, emotional shouting, hand clapping, snapping their fingers and general joyful involvement in the performance, as well as deep reflection. She has performed with many famous musicians, such as Bob Margolin, Bob Brozman, Seckou Keita, Greg Zlap, Rita Engedalen, Slidin’ Slim and Engerling group. In Summer 2010 she gave 22 concerts with harmonica virtuoso, Blues Award Winner Billy Gibson.
