Sidney Polak

Vocalist

It was in the year 1988 that I came into the possession of percussion instruments and found my muse :-).Life was quite different in those days but there is really nothing to talk about. The first band that I joined was Cytadela and it was actually a school band. We played several concerts including those in Wawa and Jarocin.It was in 1990 that Muniek invited me to join his band and I have been plaing with them up till now. In the meantime, Majcher, my university friend, helped me found Incrowd , a band that managed to achieve a little bit but it was the problems with English and rather naive approach towards our music that prevented us from spectacular success. I began composing songs with T.Love and it was they that made me open my eyes to loads of things. During the last 12 years, I have recorded a few albums and I have made my appearance in about 1,000 concerts .Now I feel mature enough to say something on my behalf, to manage the whole process of production and to write lyrics ... Shall I prove successful? Time will show.
