Polish music: Justyna Steczkowska
Posted by: Michał In: cultural beast
I haven’t posted any music for a while, but earlier today came across an artist I used to like some time ago, Justyna Steczkowska.
I haven’t heard her latest music, but if the newest video is an indication of her current musical preferences, I don’t think I’m interested.
Her older stuff is much more interesting. Justyna took Poland by storm in mid-1990s after winning a talent contest on Polish TV (yes, Poland did have its own Pop Idol back then and it was very successful too!). She released her first single ‘Dziewczyna szamana’ in 1996 and I’ve just found a jazzy version of the song, which I quite like:
But here’s another, quite different video by Justyna, called ‘Grawitacja’:
I just hope the recent more commercial, bland stuff is just a temporary ‘problem’….
