Mieczysław Litwiński

Mieczysław Litwiński

Composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist. His oeuvre combines the musical traditions of the East and the West with improvisational liberty and jazz influences. Litwiński uses a range of ethnic instruments, turning to archaic vocal techniques in his search of new possibilities of the human voice. His inspiration comes from mystic texts rooted in a diverse range of cultures, from the Egyptian Book of the Dead through Angelus Silesius’s poetry. As a musician and improviser, Litwiński eagerly indulges in collective projects, among others working in the “Sol et Luna” duo with Saba Zuzanna Krasoczko. (KS)
