Ola Pukowiec

After her time in Germany as a music student and choir master, the Polish singer Ola Pukowiec began to show her face in Dublin's jazz scene in 2008. Following 2 years of gigging with changing line-ups she was joined by guitarist David Beausang, Italian bassist Marco Santaroni and German drummer Sebastian Boes to work on her own compositions and interpret traditional polish folk songs. Some months later saxophonist Jamie Evans completed the 5-piece band who are about to record a first album in winter this year.
The fact that the members come from completely different cultural and musical backgrounds blends nicely into an interesting musical mix between jazz, pop and traditional folk elements.
