At the piano, with accordion on her shoulders, with a percussion sampler that she operates with her feet, she sometimes reminds of a big musical entity with sheer expression and groove. A one woman – orchestra? On the top of it all, the main character of the event: the voice, sometimes looped, sometimes in the role of percussion. The originality of this artist proves her performances. Invited by the most prestigious festivals in Poland and abroad as well as years of work at the GARDZIENICE theatre.
SIMON BRIGHTON, SONGLINES:
“Karolina Cicha is one of Poland’s most accomplished and interesting vocalist, not least for the choice of muic she performs.”
“Only when you can see her live. her concentrated face and those instruments she operates independently from one another, you understand what is meant by “a woman-orchestra” (…) Karolina operates emotions masterfully, suspending her strong voice in a whisper, to move on to scream or melodic vocalizations. (…) Well-known standards she filters through her imagination in such a way that they start living their own lives, shining in a new way”. Joanna Klimowicz, Gazeta współczesna
She sings with such an expression, that when she appears on stage, anything besides words and sounds does not matter”. Wojciech Hyla, Rzeczpospolita
