Warsaw Summer Jazz Days just ended, another, possibly even more intriguing series of events will occur next week in Poznan. Tzadik Festival presents new polish jewish music, for the jazz audience the centerpiece of the program is probably Uri Caine who'll play Wladyslaw Szpilman's music, but there will be also a chance to see new projects by Mikolaj Trzaska, Raphael Roginski, as well as the more rock-oriented Daktary, string quartet Samech with Koby Israelite or the exotic Me La Amargates Tu.
Tzadik Poznan Festiwal 2013 starts on 25.07 and lasts till 28.07. You can find more details on the festival's homepage.
Obviously, if you remain in (or you're visiting) Krakow, there is still enough live music to fill your evenings:
