Amarok is an art-rock music project founded in 1999 by guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Michał Wojtas and guitarist Bartosz Jackowski. Between 2001 and 2004 Amarok released three international albums. Since 2003, the formation transformed into Michał’s solo project.
2017, after a 12-year break, Amarok’s fourth album, ‘Hunt’, was released. Special guests were again Colin Bass and Mariusz Duda. Marta Wojtas, who wrote the lyrics, also joined the line-up permanently. In 2019 Michal collaborated with British choreographer James Wilton which resulted in Amarok’s fifth album – ‘The Storm’ for the show of the same name. As of 2021, Amarok has expanded its line-up with two more musicians – Konrad Zielinski (dr) and multi-instrumentalist Kornel Poplawski. Amarok’s sixth album, “Hero”, was released in autumn 2021.
