The band on stage is called Inqbator. Or rather, Inqbator (real name: Jakub Bugała) is on stage with his band. And amid the rather shy amounts of sound, he is in the process of captivating his audience. You could probably hear a pin drop between chords. The band is a five piece operation. Upright bass, cello, drums, Jakub in front with his characteristic falsetto voice, acoustic guitar and pedals, and another member switching between carefully picking an electric guitar and laying out synth chords. Inqbator released his EP The Spin in November of 2013, won the Skoda Auto Muzyka in 2014, has played multiple festivals since then, and is also engaged in other projects as a producer. With his woolen hat, dirty sneakers and glasses, it is tempting to label Jakub Bugała a hipster, and for this reason it feels liberating to partake in his musical expression. Namely an expression devoid of irony. He states that his inspirations revolve around folk, ambient, and electronic music, and traces of these various sources make themselves apparent throughout the show, as the band jumps from airy ballads to cowboy grooves and Radioheadish ambiance.
