BAJM – one of the most popular Polish bands! Established in Lublin, it was founded in 1978 by Beata Kozidrak, Andrzej Pietras, Jarosław Kozidrak and Marek Winiarski. The band’s name was invented by Andrzej’s sister, Elżbieta, who put together the first letters of the group’s founders’ names in the word BAJM.
The band won a prize in a concert of debutants at the Opole Festival in 1978. BAJM took the second place there for the song “Piechotą do lata”. The band released 16 albums. Each of them received gold or platinum status. Lyrics for all songs were written by Beata Kozidrak. The group has launched over one hundred hits, which have become a permanent part of the history of Polish music. Among the greatest are: „Płynie w nas gorąca krew”, „Dwa serca, dwa smutki”, „Małpa i ja”, „Biała armia”, „Ta sama chwila”, „Szklanka wody”, „Nie ma wody na pustyni”, „Myśli i słowa”.

She began her career as the lead singer of trio Arabesque from 1979 and started performing solo in 1984. Numerous Sandra’s albums & singles (“Maria Magdalena”, “In The Heat Of The Night”, “Everlasting Love” among others) hit the top-10 charts.

ZUZA JABŁOŃSKA – one of the most characteristic artists of the young generation. In spite of her age – 16, she knows what she wants, and goes on her way by storm. She became known as the most mature participant of “The Voice Kids”, and her characteristic timbre and vocal skills led her to the finals. Zuza presents a remarkable approach to pop. “I wanted both the text and music layers to carry a certain depth while remaining music, which I would like to reach for myself,” says the young singer. Her concerts are an energetic dose of music in which intelligent pop mixes with rock, jazz, r’n’b or soul. She has collaborated with such artists as Apoligamia, or Łona and Webber.
The doors of her artistic path is just opening. It will definitely be a road full of musical surprises, because this young girl is just starting up. After the well-received songs „Powiedz mi to w twarz” and „Sami” Zuza presents the new single “Spacer po linie”. The text by Patryk Kumora again deals with the topic of interpersonal communication, so important and slightly neglected in the world dominated by social media.
