Megitza Quartet

 

Megitza Quartet was formed by a vocalist / bassist Malgorzata Babiarz. Influences of the Polish Highlander tradition of the village, from which she originally hails, can be heard in her compositions as well as in her style of singing. Andreas Kapsalis, an acoustic guitar prodigy, adds elements of flamenco, while the accordionist Marek Lichota evokes the pathos of klezmer with fluidly melodic runs, all backed by an innovative drummer Jamie Gallagher.

"Fantastic voice and a unique talent.- Roby Lakatos, Virtuoso, Gypsy Violinist

"There is nothing as terrifying as witnessing the reincarnation of old prophet's soul in a voice of a young artist."
- Osvaldo Golijov, Grammy Award Winning Composer

"World music for the new millennium….
Kurt Weil meets Edith Piaf, meets Stephane Grappelli, meets Erik Satie, meets the Megitza Quartet…."

- Jim Tullio, Grammy Award Winning Composer and Producer
