Maja Laura (Jaryczewska) marks her debut this year with the album Bardo. It was created based on the experience of death and loss. Against all appearances, these experiences also bring with them a great amount of light and strength, and the delight of them, along with the burden of dark feelings, is contained in these recordings. Bardo is from Sanskrit “an intermediate state,” in this case a leaning out of the darkness into the light. This music is piano simplicity and synth dirt, chamber music, honest words. Austerity and madness at the same time. The album was produced by the duo Maciej Cieślak (Ścianka) / Maja Laura. Along with the release of the album the label Maja Laura Records is also being established. On June 9 at 21:00 in Bar Studio in Warsaw the first concert after the premiere of the album will take place.
Maja Laura Jaryczewska is a 23-year-old pianist, composer, singer, songwriter and social activist. She walks her own paths, placing independent thinking and authenticity above all else. She studied with great Polish musicians like Włodzimierz Nahorny, Sławek Jaskułke and Paweł Mykietyn. In recent years a member of the Ścianka band, the legend of alternative music in Poland. President of the Foundation Effective Altruism Poland, the Polish branch of the global social movement Effective Altruism. Privately the daughter of Krzysztof Jaryczewski, founder of Oddział Zamknięty band.
“That’s why you don’t want to stop listening, and when this album, thought through from start to finish, ends with one more goodbye, a simple and touching ballad for her mother, something tempts you to start listening from the beginning, stay in this state and remember Maja Laura’s album debut well. One of the most interesting, most winged that recent months have brought.” – Adam Suprynowicz, Vogue Polska
