Sergiej Wowkotrub Gibsy Swing Quartet

The ansamble, Sergiej Wowkotrub Gibsy Swing Quartet, started in 2011. The group’s core is Sergiej Wowkotrub, leader and violinist; Jacek Serczyk – guitar; Jakub Mietła – accordion; and Piotr Górka – double bass.

The leader, Sergiej Wowkotrub, educated in Czajkowsky Conservatory in Kyiv, is a violin virtuoso, the first violinist and capellmaster of Czestochowa Philharmonic.

The Quartet, besides gipsy swing music inspired by works of Django Reinhardt and Stephan Grappelli, also plays well-known popular and film music, always in fresh arrangation. A new and original way of presenting music from the world of jazz and entertainment gains the band a broad audience, and the concerts are natural musical spectacles with carefully thought-out dramaturgy and an extraordinary atmosphere. The remarkable sensitivity and temperament of the musicians are revealed both in ensemble playing and in solo parts. Jazz for everyone! Music similar to the style of Hot Club de Paris. The band has performed at many prestigious festivals in Poland and abroad: Germany, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Slovakia.
