How did this grant contribute to the realization of your project in regard to artistic exchange, local cultural development and/or the promotion of cultural diversity?

Thanks to the Roberto Cimetta Fund grant, we could present our music to the Maltese and international audience and as well U was able to conduct workshops. It was an amazing experience, my original music was very enthusiastically received. Between songs from the RnB genre, smooth jazz, soul, we also performed songs based on the Polish poetry. I used, among others loop station, so the performance had elements that aroused public surprise, but the reactions were very positive. Thanks to the opportunity to stay in Malta I also conducted workshops, I could learn a lot in terms of music from people living in Malta, which undoubtedly affected my person. During the workshop, we were developing some twehniques if improvisation - the participants had to build the song by inventing rhythms, melody, harmony and record everything using only their own voice. Such creative activities always open up and bring together people, and this is the essence and purpose of all my music& culture creations.

How does exchange, networking and international contacts contribute to the development of your artistic and cultural project?

Exchange, networking and international contacts gained in any circumstances are the essence of my artistic and cultural projects - always.

Can you elaborate on the learning and knowledge you have gained and shared throughout this experience?

First of all, Malta is beautiful and people are welcoming and also open towards the musical knowledge. They were very creative, even though at the beginning maybe a bit shy. They were interested in both - the main genre I play my music, but also the cultural background that obviously impacted the music I presented. We ended up playing much longer then we suppose to. Also, what is worth of mentioning, a lot of people that came over said that they appreciate the original music of mine; the vast majority claimed that live music programs in Malta contain cover, while the audience would like to hear something original!
