BRODKA(PL)

Brodka rose to fame as the winner of the third season of Polish Pop Idol in 2004. Her music is a mix of orchestral pop, grunge alt-rock and traditional Polish folk, referencing her father, who’s a travelling musician. Her album “Granda” went double platinum in Poland and firmly placed her in the top of the Polish music scene. She’s now released her first English album, where Brodka draws inspiration from Björk and PJ Harvey. Being one of the most unique musicians to come from Poland in recent years, her music has received critical acclaim in Poland and abroad.

She has released three albums, including the 2010 album Granda. The album showed a big change of musical direction, and was described in The Guardian as “drawing on electro, rock and roots music, but remaining resolutely pop in its approach and execution, the record has a vitality and adventurousness that puts most of Poland’s alt-rock acts to shame”.
