CRK Salka is a thriving Wrocław based collective active since 2006. Although this creative environment has been represented by such groups as Kurws, Ukryte Zalety Systemu, and Przepych, there are many more bands in the room. Some are still waiting for their moment, while others have disintegrated leaving almost no trace behind as their members stitch new constellations. In this space, one plays with sound in various personnel arrangements nested in a growing web of personal connection, reflecting the communal aspect of this collective work. “Pandemiczny przegląd zespołów salkowych” is a documentary film of a concert performed in autumn 2020. It captures the current moment in the life of our community, showcasing its representation today.

Live performances in this video:


On stage current and former members of: Barłóg, Norymberga, Flux, Pustostany, Polaroid Android, Stragesti and others.

Kurws is accompanied by a guest appearance of Filip Zakrzewski (Ślina, Tortex) for one night exclusively.

The video was shot on September 26th of 2020 in the concert hall of CRK (Wrocław, Poland). It was made primarily for those whom we couldn’t let in due to the pandemic, keeping the number of tickets on an acceptable minimum.
