On September 23 at 19:00 on the VIVO observation deck! Lublin, we will have the opportunity to listen to the legend of Polish blues, which returns to Lublin after many years. Kasa Chorych is a band founded in 1975 by Ryszard "Skiba" Skibiński, who played the harmonica, and guitarist Jarosław Tioskow. In the mid-1980s, they contributed to the fact that young people also became interested in blues, and thanks to them, this music is played at the biggest festivals in the country to this day.

The concert of Kasa Chorych is not the only attraction waiting for music fans at VIVO! Lublin.
