Vita

When Jan is not throwing his constructive criticism around as Klavierpunk, he works on blogs, short videos or is politically active in other ways. A late convert to singing, his instrument has been the piano for 25 years: he jazzy his way through various swing bands, had a six-year stopover in ska (complete with organ!) and now uses the piano and ukulele to present his view of things to the world.

Jan Kosyk has been playing the piano for 20 years in various bands and ensembles in the styles of Jazz, Bossa Nova and Folk, and for the last five years he has also been a singer-songwriter in the self-created genre of “Klavierpunk” (piano punk). Here he combines folk and jazz elements with punk music to convey political and emotional lyrics. Besides composing lyrics and songs, he tries out other art forms like animation and music videos and small installations.

After 15 years in Dresden and more than 400 concerts in Germany and Europe, he is currently on a tour over the world to break out of everyday life, meet new people, find inspirations and focus on his own music and art production.
