BIOGRAPHY

“A la croisée du folklore polonais et de l’electro-pop alternatif”

Chanteuse multi-instrumentiste d’origine polonaise, ANKA puise son inspiration dans le folklore de son pays.

Née en Pologne en 1982, elle apprend le piano et la flûte à l’Académie de Musique de Katowice au cours d’une formation classique.
Arrivée à Paris en 2003, elle intègre le cursus jazz au Conservatoire Régional de Paris au saxophone.

Attachée à ses origines polonaises, Anka veut faire découvrir au public français et international toute la beauté de la culture de son pays.
Elle décide donc de composer et d’écrire ses propres chansons en mêlant des sonorités électroniques, pop et folk à ses racines musicales traditionnelles.

Avec ses textes pleins de poésie, Anka captive son public et l’entraîne dans son monde imaginaire, passant de ses souvenirs d’enfances à ses espoirs de demain.
Tour à tour douces ou portées par le rythme des danses de son pays d’origine, ses compositions sont toujours sensibles et touchantes.

Son premier EP “Zabawa” (“fête” en Polonais) sort en distribution digitale chez
The Orchard le 2 Décembre 2016.

Anka is a singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist from Poland who draws inspiration from the folklore of her country. Her music has been described as the crossroads between Polish folklore and electro-pop.

Originally from Bydgoszcz in Poland, Anka went to Paris in 2003 to study jazz saxophone in CRR Conservatory. During her studies, she began to realise that her Polish roots were close to her heart and she began to incorporate them as an important element into her work. From this point on, she set about developing a sound that mixes electronic pop and traditional Eastern folk music, with the aim of sharing the beauty of Polish culture with audiences around the world. Her work varies from the smooth melodies of “Rosa” to “Zabawa” that captures the rhythms of traditional Polish dance. Her compositions and poetic lyrics are always sensitive and heart-warming, full of double meanings cause Anka plays with worlds to bring the audience to a deeper reflection about live. Anka’s captivating live performance draws the audience into her imaginary world, we travel with her through the Polish landscapes, where she sings of her childhood memories and hopes for tomorrow.

On stage Anka is not only a singer she plays as well a saxophone, flute or piano. She’s accompanied by three french musicians: Valentin Couineau who plays bass, keys and machines and that is also a co-producer of Anka’s tracks; Loîc Audureau who plays accordion and effects and Pierre Demange on drums.

Her first EP “Zabawa” (“Party” in Polish) will be released in digital distribution
at The Orchard in December the 2nd 2016.
