We expected Egill Logi Jónasson’s performance to be like nothing we had ever seen before – and yet we were still amazed by this level of creativity, showmanship, musical and visual sensations. Egill’s songs told tales of his shopping adventures, impressions of Łódź’s industrial landscape and experiences with Polish people. It was full of not only sounds, but also visuals that are destined to stay in our memory forever.
The icelandic town Akureyri seems to be taken straight out of a fairytale – it’s small, quiet, filled with charming buildings and surrounded by a breathtaking view of mountains and ocean. This is the place where Egill Logi Jónasson was born.
From faraway Iceland, with a handful of instruments in his luggage, Egill Logi Jónasson finally arrived in Łódź and he is already getting creative. He plans to prepare twelve songs and a documentary inspired by his experiences living, sightseeing and shopping in Poland. We’ll be able to hear them live at the concert titled "It rubs the mattyfying lotion on its skin" ending his artistic residency.
We are thrilled about the news of avantgarde artist Egill Logi Jónasson being our guest in Łódź since 8th to 27th January. Egill will visit to Art Factory (Fabryka Sztuki) in order to work on material for his brand new album.

Avant-garde, modern nonoccidental electronic music and very strong artistic experience... It was such a great evening with T'ien Lai in Mengi!
It's time for Icelandic audience to meet T'ien Lai. That polish trio (Jędrzejczak, Ziołek, Qba Janicki) finds it's inspiration in modern nonoccidental electronic music scenes, such as kuduro, gqom or baile funk, co-creating new music style known as "konk".
