Once again, Night of Culture participants will have an opportunity to take part in a unique music show on the rooftop of Vivo! Lublin shopping centre. This year, we will see, among others: Marcin Masecki – the music director of the film “Cold War”. Festival guests will experience a true sonic adventure in syncopated rhythms – jazz will flow from rooftop galleries.
During the evening, we will hear three music bands. The first, consisting of students of Jazz and Stage Music at Maria Curie Skłodowska University’s Arts Faculty under the supervision of dr hab Mariusz Bogdanowicz will prove to the listeners that jazz is atmosphere.
The next performers will be The Schwings, who will present their own compositions inspired by the fold standards of Brazilian and Gypsy jazz.
The star of the evening will be JAZZ BAND MŁYNARSKI-MASECKI, who will transport us to the world of dance and emotions by evoking the traditions of the inter-war Polish jazz orchestras.
Łukasz Borkowski will be introducing the bands.

The Schwings are a vintage swing and New Orleans style jazz band hailing all the way from the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius! Founded in 2011 by legendary jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist Remis Rančys. The Schwings rapidly rose to popularity in Lithuanian jazz festivals, clubs and lindy hop dance events. Initially playing golden standards of swing, Brazilian, and gypsy jazz, the band has since begun recording original compositions.
Their most recent album “Teisutis” (March 2019) reached the #1 bestseller in swing/jazz category on Bandcamp – a popular online music distributor.
Spotify data suggests, that most of The Schwings fans live in the USA.
Now performing internationally, they have ‘schwung’ their Lithuanian spirit across the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Poland, Estonia, Finland and Russia.
With music as diverse as the seasons – the Schwings can burn like summer, be nostalgic as autumn, pure as winter and uplifting as spring – all in the space of one evening.
