Piotr Damasiewicz, known to his friends as “Damaś”: a seeker of the roots and a friend of the wind; you won’t find anyone who can remember if he ever played a jazz standard.
“Into the Roots”: music inspired by the cultures of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Maghreb, Scandinavia and the Żywiec region, accessible and upbeat in its way, clearing the mind and inspiring the imagination.

Damaś – a free spirit but also the leader of many bands, which he directs with almost businesslike agility – mostly lets his partners play and have fun.
You don’t like to guess the melody? Don’t worry, that’s not that kind of jazz – it’s all about the rhythm, held evenly by the bass and drums, over (and under) which the trumpet, and sometimes the leader himself, playfully sings, proclaiming the apotheosis of music’s origins as a ritual and thanksgiving for life.
