I've Never Heard Anything Quite Like This Street Musician
Street performer Mariusz Goli says that "busking," or playing music in a public space, is his "way of life". Born in Poznan, Poland, Mariusz first picked up the guitar when he was fifteen years old. Seven years ago, he decided to make a career out of his music. Although he also plays in more traditional venues like clubs, bars and restaurants, he says that the direct contact with the public makes busking his favorite way to perform. He performs regularly in Katowice and other Polish cities. While he does experiment with a variety of musical styles, Mariusz's biggest influences are folk and flamenco music. In this clip called "Improvisation", Mariusz entertains pedestrians on the streets of Katowice.
