Kuba Płużek – pianist and composer
Born 1988, in Krakow, he studied at the Katowice Academy of Music, in the Jazz and Popular Music Department.
He is one of the most talented and creative instrumentalists on the Polish jazz scene. His creativity is characterized by a wide-ranging musical imagination, absolute control of his instrument, and electrifying power of expression.
A provocative spirit in the musical world, with a bold virtuosity, whose intriguing compositions are rich with diffuse and fragmented phrasing, he balances harmonic coherence on a fine line with sensitivity, and opens a world of true jazz of the highest grade before the listener.
A finalist at the Montreux Piano Competition, he's won or been a finalist at many jazz competitions in Poland and international jazz competitions
