Big Bad Wilki

Popular Polish rock band Wilki (Wolves) will play a concert at Warsaw's Kongresowa Hall Oct. 11.

Formed by Robert Gawliński in 1991 in Warsaw, Wilki have since earned a place in the history of Polish rock music. Their first album Wilki from 1992 was a huge success and sold a whopping 2 million copies. The single "Son of the Blue Sky" topped all charts in Poland.

Two follow-up albums, przedmieścia and Live, the latter a live recording of a concert in Cracow, were released in 1993, and a year later Wilki released Acousticus Rockus, an unplugged concert. In 1995, Wilki stopped performing together and frontman Robert Gawliński started a solo career that to date has spawned four albums: Solo (1995), Kwiaty jak relikwie (1997), X (1998), and Gra (1999).

In 2000, a greatest-hits compilation, Największe przeboje, was released, with tracks recorded by Wilki and Gawliński's solo hits. Soon after the band reunited and embarked on a concert tour in 2001. Wilki's first new recording in eight years, a song entitled "Baśka," was released in 2002 and became a smash hit that summer, winning first prize at the Polish Song Festival in Opole.

The most recent album by Wilki, Obrazki, came out Nov. 10, 2006. Featuring the single "Na zawsze i na wieczność," the album failed to match the success of its predecessors and only made it to No. 11 on the Polish album chart. Meanwhile, Gawliński is preparing material for another solo album.

Kongresowa Hall, Palace of Culture and Science, 1 Defilad Sq.
