ISJA 2010

With a “holiday” delay of one week, Cultural me, Cultural you has reached its 7th edition. You are all invited to log in & listen to the interviews I took during this year’s International Summer Jazz Academy (ISJA), from the 11th to the 22nd of July, in Krakow.

Music, inspiration, improvisation, performing and teaching are some of the topics I came across in my talks with Grzegorz Motyka, founder and director of the Krakow School of Jazz and Contemporary Music, jazz guitarist, director of the annual Krakow Jazz Festival of the Old & Young, ISJA staff member & organiser since 1999, and Magda Cebulska (who was kind enough to contribute as Mr. Motyka’s interpreter during this interview),
