Kapela Timingeriu is a family band established to answer the call for a natural need to experience music in a specific time, setting and context. For Timingeriu, music making is an opportunity to meet; it is an open and constantly evolving thing. They perform lively, catchy interpretations of Gypsy, Balkan and Jewish music that snatches everyone to dance. Thus, they create an atmosphere of unrestrained fun and an opportunity to meet. The beginnings of the group date back to a musical expedition to Romania in 2009. Since then, the band expanded to include more enthusiasts of musical adventures, travelling with instruments all over Poland and abroad – hitchhiking, on bikes, boats or by car. The band are comfortable in nearly every type of concert setting: big outdoor stages, small stages as well as during theatre plays and circus shows. Cabarets and other unique cultural events.
