We invite you to the extraordinary concert of the REBEL BABEL project. L.U.C., Bisz and Representative Orchestra of AGH UST will appear on 23. IFF Etiuda&Anima stage. It will get loud!
REBEL BABEL is a set of concerts, performances and flash mobs, that use music to carry positive vibes to the audience, upgrade traditions and reach out to people who are not allowed to participate in all areas of culture. The artists will try to mix European hip-hop and funk culture with sound of local brass bands making good use of differences between various languages.
L.U.C. alias Łukasz Rostkowski – composer, lyrics writer, vocalist, performer, gas fitter, Master of Law and director of music videos and concerts. After seven years of law studies he got to legal apprenticeship. Unfortunately, the day he was going to make a pledge he happened to be already engaged to meet Zgas – his friend, beatboxer. To pay tribute to sweatsuit and to keep his word, he never started the apprenticeship. Since that day he completely devoted to his greatest passion – art. His courage and consistence in his work, his eclecticism and unconventional ideas of film, music and lyrics leaded him to winning many awards and nominations in some of the most important contests (like Paszport Polityki, Yach, Mateusze Trójki, Warto, Wrocławska Nagroda Muzyczna, Ale Sztuka!, Gwarancje TVP Kultury, Fryderyki). His artistic output includes ten albums, five of which are conceptual ones, composed music for many spectacles and short videos. His music stands somewhere between nu jazz, trip-hop, hip-hop, electro, classics and movie themes. He occurred to compose and record with many outstanding vocalists and instrumentalists like Urszula Dudziak, Zbigniew Namysłowski, Michał Urbaniak, Leszek Możdżer and Maria Peszek. He also played as a support before Tricky, The Prodigy, Skunk Anansie.

He launched minialbums: “Zimy” (2007), which won him popularity in his environment, then “Idąc na żywioł” (2009) and “Burza i napór” (2010). In 2012 his debut solo album “Wilk chodnikowy” was released and became one of the best CDs of the year in numerous charts and was sold in more than 150,000 copies, thus winning the title of a gold record. In October 2016 another album by Bisz, “Wilczy humor”, was released and was enthusiastically received by the critics.
