A Polish evening with Kasia Bortnik Quintet

By the time China's spacecraft lands on the back of the moon, Kasia Bortnik - Folkwang College graduate for Jazz vocals - her second solo album "The moon is just a fake".
The content is poetic and playful. The songs, in Polish and English, vary between minimalist interpretations and compositions full of energy and joie de vivre.
Kasia's questions about life that reflect her music and lyrics remain open, as well as the question whether the moon landing really happened. The the only thing that counts is the driving force anyway.
