Stara Rzeka biography
Stara Rzeka (Polish for "Old River") is one of many projects of a Polish multi-instrumentalist Jakub Ziołek (his other outfits include Alameda Trio, Ed Wood, Innercity Ensemble, Hokei, T'ien Lai and Kapital). The name of this one-man band comes from a small village located in the heart of beautiful Bory Tucholskie - a big forest in northern Poland - where Mr. Ziołek was based at the time when he conceived this idea.

The music for Stara Rzeka's albums has been composed almost exclusively on an acoustic guitar and draws influence from a wide variety of genres and styles, including black metal, otherworldly folk, electronic music and drone among others, which makes it virtually impossible to pigeonhole it. But, as Mr. Ziołek admitted himself in an interview for the Quietus, his only true and prevalent influence is the German music of the 70s, which he considers the most important legacy in post-World War II European music, with such bands as Kraftwerk, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Can, Faust, Neu, Amon Düül II, Guru Guru and many others (although he said that he admires different artists as well and e.g. for his last album he utilised compositions of free jazz artists Pharoah Sanders and Albert Ayler and by an American composer Moondog) and that is why we decided to file this project under Krautrock in Progarchives.

Jakub Ziołek released two studio albums - "Cień chmury nad ukrytym polem" and "Zamknęły się oczy Ziemii" - as Stara Rzeka with the last one being, as he said, his final work issued under this moniker though he continues to use it for performing purposes as for now (at least until he comes up with a new one for his activities).
