***

In 1965 he met Tadeusz Nalepa, with whom he created the band “Blackout”. After two years of playing together he split with the “Blackout” and started playing with band “Bizony”. As a vocalist with this band he changed his name, stage appearance and recorded his big holiday hit song “Spacer Dziką Plażą” (Walking on a Sandy Beach).

Stan_borys_02

He was aiming into a more ambitious repertoire and in 1968 he appeared at the Opole music festival with the song “To Ziemia” (It’s Earth), winning the journalists’ prize. In 1973 he won another award performing “Jaskółka Uwięziona” at the Opole festival.

Since 1970 he started acting only as soloist. He was singing in many festivals in Poland, and abroad winning prizes.

Because of his “Jesus-like-look” image (he has long hair, a beard and always wears a cross necklace), and liberty-themed songs, he experienced problems with the communist government which often cut off his appearances on TV, and censored his lyrics.

East Los Angeles College, Cinema Without Borders and the Polish Film Festival Los Angeles are proud to present the Polish Animation Night Festival, the first of the annual East Los Angeles College International Animation Nights Festival.

The goal of the ELAC World Animation Nights Festival is to give an in-depth and entertaining introduction to contemporary international animation. Screenings of short animated films from around the world, analyses and Q&A’s with a panel of well-known animation experts, and a tribute to an international animation artist working in the U.S. animation industry are all part of the festival program. An exhibition of animation art will be held at one of the East Los Angeles College galleries during the festival from 2016.

“Poland has an amazing history in animation, and artists around our planet have been inspired by their strong, but still simple character design and new approaches to storytelling.” said Bijan Tehrani, Editor in Chief of Cinema Without Borders and Director of the East Los Angeles College International Animation Nights Festival.

Slicing the Bread

Published by Finishing Line Press (December 2014)

https://finishinglinepress.com/product_info.php?products_id=2149

http://poetrylaurels.blogspot.com/2014/07/finishing-line-press-to-publish-slicing.html

This unique poetry collection revisits the dark days of World War II and the post-war occupation of Poland by the Soviet Union that “liberated” the country from one foreign oppression to replace it with another.  The point of view is that of children, raised by survivors, scarred by war, wary of politics. Children experienced the hunger and cold, witnessed the killings, saw the darkening blood spilled on the snow and hands stretching from locked boxcar windows. Some heardthe voices of murdered Jews like “bees in the breeze,” others learned never to throw any food away, because “war is hunger.”  The poems, each inspired by a single object giving rise to memories like Proust’s madeleine (a spoon, a coat, the smell of incense), are divided into three sections, starting with snapshots of World War II in the Polish Borderlands (Kresy) and in central Poland. Reflections onthe Germans’ brutalkillings of Jews and Poles are followed by insights into the way the long shadow of THE war darkened a childhood spent behind the Iron Curtain.  For poet Georgia Jones Davis, this book, “brings the experience of war into shocking, immediate focus” through Trochimczyk’s use of  “her weapon: Language at its most precise and lyrical, understated and piercingly visual.”

According to Pulitzer-Prize nominated poet John Guzlowski, Maja’s “poems about what the Poles suffered both during World War II and The Cold War afterwards are written with the clarity of truth and the fullness of poetry…  Here are the stories of how the people she loved experienced hunger and suffering and terror so strong that it defined them and taught her, and teach us, the meaning of family.” A fellow Polish-American poet, Linda Nemec Foster praises the “unwavering honesty” and “stark imagery” of Trochimczyk’s poetry that “bear witness to the hate that destroys, to the truth that restores, and to the poetic vision that honors our common humanity.” The Tieferet Prize winner and Poets-Café host Lois P. Jones points out the “vivid and heartbreaking detail” of poems that “will move you to appreciate the simple privileges and necessities of life.” As Jones wisely observes “It is the duty of the poet to convey story, but it is the art of the poet who can transform our often cruel and brutal history and affect forever, the way we look and listen to the world.”  Poet Sharon Chmielarz concurs: “You will remember the taste of this book.”

 

 

MAJA TROCHIMCZYK, Ph.D., is a poet, music historian, photographer, and non-profit director born in Poland and living in California (www.trochimczyk.net). She published three collections of poems: Rose Always and Miriam’s Iris (Moonrise Press), and Slicing the Bread (Finishing Line Press). She also edited two anthologies of poetry, Chopin with Cherries and Meditations on Divine Names that offer “rich poetic material selected and collected with great sensitivity” (Prof. Grażyna Kozaczka, Polish Review, 2014).

The venues for her poetry have included: The Loch Raven Review, Epiphany Magazine, Lily Review, Ekphrasis Journal, Quill and Parchment, Magnapoets, SGVGPQ,  Cosmopolitan Review, The Scream Online, The Original Van Gogh’s Ear Anthology, Clockwise Cat, Lummox Journal, Phantom Seed, Colorado Boulevard, Poezja Dzisiaj, OccuPoetry, as well as many anthologies.
