Budka Suflera

Budka Suflera are a Polish rock band formed in Lublin in 1969. They might best be described as ballad driven rock. As a band they are still going strong and one of the most popular bands in Poland. Check them out here!

This is one of Budka Suflera’s more recent songs, ‘Kiedy Rozum Spi’ (When the mind sleeps). Other well-loved songs include: ‘Jolka Jolka’, ‘Za ostatni grosz’ (The last penny / cent) and ‘Jest taki samotny dom’ (Such a lonely house).

Breakout – The Best Polish Rock Band

Breakout is a Polish rock band, formed in 1968. Here is a film of them performing one of their earliest songs, ‘Poszlabym za toba’ (I would follow you).

That song is great but our favourite song by the band is the laid-back and very bluesy ‘Modlitwa’. Be sure to seek that one out.

Breakout’s band members:
Tadeusz Nalepa – guitar, harmonica, vocals
Mira Kubasinska – vocals
Janusz Zielibski – bass guitar
Krzysztof Dlutowski – keyboards
Jozef Hajdasz – drums

Also: Jozef Skrzek (later of the other great Polish blues rock band – S.B.B)


Breakout – a fantastic blues rock band from Poland. We recommend you buy all their CDs!
