Wroclaw Jazz Festival Jazz nad Odra, besides the Jazz Jamboree and Jazz in Cracow All Souls’ Day, is one of the oldest Polish jazz festivals. It started in 1964 in Pałacyk, a famous student club. Since its begining, it has played a significant role on the Polish music scene. Winning an award in the festival competition, being noticed by the jury, or the critics, was a pass for young musicians to the professional careers.

The competition, which in the early years of the festival was its most important element  selected such personalities of the Polish jazz scene as: Ewa Bem, Vladimir Nahorny, Zbigniew Seifert, Krzesimir Debski, Jaroslaw Smietana, Janusz Strobel, Piotr Baron, Henryk Miskiewicz and Tomasz Szukalski, Andrzej Zaucha. The list is very long and spectacular. Over the years the festival has changed the profile, there were more stars from European and world jazz (such were the expectations of the festival audience), but the competition selecting ” jazz individuality ” remains “salt” of the event.

This year the festival gathers stars such as Lars Danielsson Quartet and Tomasz Stanko Quartet.

I have a bad news for you. The concert was called off. Instead of Sinead will play Tanita Tikaram. Time and date is the same.

Sinead O’Connor is going to perform on Slodowa Island during WrocLove Fest 2012 on 19th June 2012. This will be her first concert in Poland after the release of her latest album “How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?“.

Sinead O’Connor can’t be confused with any other figure on the music scene. This is a singer having sensitive, breaking the hearts, yet psychedelic and disturbing voice. It is also a rebellious spirit, the warrior queen of music. Tireless in her actions, despite the controversy, which for all the years has gathered around her, not giving up, giving numerous concerts, and releasing better and better albums. Sinead O’Connor is certainly a unique phenomenon on the music scene, and her concerts are remembered for long time.

Sinead musical career flourished with the first hit “Mandika” in 1987, a multi-platinum success of ‘I Do Not Want What I Have not Got” with an unforgettable version of the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U” which strengthened her position in modern popular music. In the next years she cooperated with a lot of musicians and released the next albums in which she experimented with such distant musical genres as Irish folk “Sean-Nos Nua” (2002) and roots reggae “Throw Down Your Arms” (2005). She has worked with such artists as Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, The Chieftans, Asian Dub Foundation, Burning Spear, and Sly & Robbie. Sinead O’Connor is one of the icons of Irish music, and has had this status for over 30 years of her artistic activity. Until now she  has released 13 albums, the last “How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?” which appeared on the world market on March 5, 2012.

The concert will be held during the artist WrocLove Fest 2012, a three-day music event organized on the occasion of Wrocław days. The performance at the Fest WrocLove has already been confirmed by Gentleman, a reggae star, and Stephen Marley and Chambao the Spanish flamenco chill star.
