THE GURGUL BAND was created in 2011. GURGUL BAND’S original sound results from a bold mixture of accordion and a jazz trio consisting of: piano, bass guitar and drums. The group’s music is characterized by a broad stylistic cross-section and fusion of jazz, world music and, at times, progressive rock. GURGUL BAND’S pieces may evoke connotations of contemporary Scandinavian jazz, yet, thanks to the unique combination of instruments and the individual approach to musical form, the group eludes predictable patterns and straightforward categorization.

In November 2011, GURGUL BAND released its first album. The band’s original repertoire includes pieces composed mainly by the leader and occasionally other band members. The group comprises four musicians, graduates of Krakow and Katowice Music Academies: Mateusz Gurgul – accordion, Krystian Jaworz – piano, Paweł Kluba – bass and Michał Peiker – drums.
