Taken skillfully from his recent ten-track album named ‘Raia‘, Ludwik Konopko carefully transmits so much heartfelt peace and rare care from his trusty guitar for us to bathe in restfully, on his latest single called ‘Zoa’ (Raia Version).
Ludwik Konopko is an accomplished and multi-talented indie-jazz and bluesy world-fusion musician, guitarist and composer who is based in Katowice, Poland. The ZOA Band leader, he is a highly experienced musician who has been playing at home and overseas since the late 80’s.
”His guitar music incorporates elements of blues, jazz, flamenco, and world music.” ~ Ludwik Konopko
You feel so safe and warmly comforted by a true great who has an incredible skill – which has been trained up from all those years putting in the hard work – as you carefully close your worried eyes, so you can feel a sense of calm restoring into your blurry eyes.
”He had his first public appearance as a guitarist at the age of 19, when he performed in an orchestra conducted by the composer Virko Baley at the Lviv National Philharmonic.” ~ Ludwik Konopko
‘Zoa’ (Raia Version) from the worldwide acclaimed Polish indie-jazz/blues/world artist, composer and guitarist Ludwik Konopko, is that true graceful effort which has your feet tapping delightfully. There are no vocals here to cloud our minds, only a fantastic beat and world class guitar playing, that has your weary head feeling so much more thoughtful than before. This is the type of track to put on when your whole body is racing off the tracks from too much stimulation, as you take a break and free up your consciousness, so that you may return confidently to former glories.
