2 plus 1

The band 2 plus 1 was founded in Warsaw in January 1971 by a guitarist Janusz Kruk and a flautist Elżbieta Dmoch. Later a new guitarist, Andrzej Rybiński, joined the group. The band started to cooperate with Polish lyricist Katarzyna Gärtner and became the first band to perform her songs live. Their initial performances were held in hotel Bristol in Warsaw. The trio called themselves Smak Miodu (The Taste of Honey), but the band's name was afterwards changed to Dwa Plus Jeden (2 Plus 1). In the summer of 1971 the group performed during National Festival of Polish Song in Opole, where they got an award for the song Nie zmogła go kula. It was also the first 2 Plus 1's performance in front of a large audience and the first chance to present themselves to mass receivers. However, Andrzej Rybiński very soon left the group and founded his own formation Andrzej i Eliza. After that, Andrzej Krzysztofik joined the group. With this line-up the band later took part in a festival in Kołobrzeg, where they perormed Już nie będę taki głupi (I Won't Be That Stupid Anymore). In the same year 2 Plus 1 recorded their first EP, titled simply 2+1. It contained four folk-flavoured songs. The band started to perform also abroad, among others in West Berlin and the Soviet Union. Read more on Last.fm.
