Since her birth Ewa Demarczyk has been living in Kraków, the ancient capital of the Polish kings, the oldest and most beatuiful town of Poland.
Already at the time of her musical and theatrical studies she began to perform in a cabaret of “quest” – “Piwnica pod Baranami”.
Since her first song she has known how to attract the attention of the audience of these astonishing, poetical and at the same time grotesque performances of the cabaret.
In 1963, at the Festival of the Polish Song in Opole, she won all the awards.
Ewa Demarczyk is an artist of great and unique talent.
Slim, with dark hair, wrapped in shadow and multicolour spotlights, she sings – and her singing is piercing and extraordinary. The face full of expression… the excellent vocal technique… the voice of exceptional beauty and diapason… the perfect enunciation – all these are her attributes.
She interprets poems written by the most eminent Polish and foreign authors, such as Bolesław Leśmian, Julian Tuwim, Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński, Rilke, Goethe, Mandelstam…
… she sings of love, anxiety, despair… the green meadows and forests…
the taste of tears and the taste of grapes, the smell of sweet peas and roses, the wind
… the silence of September twilight, the heat of summer – water, fire and earth
… the war and the war’s cruel death
… Ossian’s mystery play
… Soloman’s accesses of love…
The music composed by Zygmunt Konieczny and Andrzej Zarycki combines elements of the old music and contemporary vanguard; it expresses the atmosphere of poetry in a perfect manner.
The characteristic, very theatrical style, the sound of her voice and the dramatic power of expression – all these enchant her audience and ravish even these who do not know the Polish language. The artistry of Ewa Demarczyk breaks through any language barriers.
Ewa Demarczyk is much admired and she always receives an enthusiastic welcome in every country she visits. She has performed in France, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Yugoslavia, Belgium, Holland, West Germany, Canada, Cuba, Israel, the Soviet Union and the United States of America.
… And in Poland she is named the “Black Angel”!!!
