Polish Nights in Nairobi!

For those NOT in the know this year (2010) marks the 200th birthday anniversary of Chopin, a musical genius. Well, worry NOT neither did I know! but thanks to the polish Embassy in Kenya which collaborated with CHOPIN2010 Celebration Office to organise a concert right here in Nairobi.

So the evening of November 16 saw me in Alliance Auditorium to listen to Mr. Mateusz Kolakowski, a Polish jazz pianist and boy was he hot on the piano. Streaming some classical music from Chopin and doing some of his own compositions and others that bordered on Jazz. Call it fusion of Classical & Jazz. Awesome evening it was.

Here is a video of  Mr. Mateusz Kolakowski doing what he does best. Playing the piano. 
Now waiting for Mr. janusz Olejniczak performance in December.
