Katy Carr ‘Mała Little Flower’

This one for all my Polish brothers and sisters. Katy Carr is a singer-songwriter from Nottingham, England with a Polish mother who’s making a strong effort to embrace her Polish roots. After meeting an Auschwitz escapee Kazik Piechowski (the album begins with him describing his escape), she’s taken on a new mission on her fourth album:  to publicize stories of the Polish forces during the second world war. This makes her newest album  ‘Paszport’ (out this week in the UK) one of the more intriguing and passionate concept albums of the year (especially for me).

Flowing through many inspiring and heroic tales from WW2 (including a song about a particular bear called Wojtek!) that I’m sure will please all my Polish friends; ‘Paszport’ has a unique and refreshing sound lifting inspiration from traditional polish folk, gypsy jazz and Katy’s own already established style that should also appeal to people outside of the Polish community.

Na zdrowie!
