italian press about our perfomance on XX Eddie Lang Jazz Festival

The band was highly appraised not only in Poland. After their performance at the annual Eddie Lang Jazz Festival in Monteroduni 2010, the Italian press wrote:

Pignatelli’s castle was extremely vivid that evening. We watched the performance of Warszawa Kyiv Express. The band draws inspiration from Polish and Ukrainian folk music, and offers a nice touch of ethno-jazz sounds, which are rich in old folk traditions. The band turned out to be a revelation of the 20th edition of the festival.

Five musicians, who offered to the audience of the festival an ethno-jazz repertoire rooted in ethno-jazz from the Central-European tradition. This band moves forward and seeks independent jazz path, a path that does not forsake their folk roots.
