Zawiałow’s “Fifi Hollywood” and Sanah’s live album “Bankiet u Sanah” are just a few of the notable nominations looking to claim the prestigious music awards.

    Emerging talents and seasoned artists alike, such as Kasia Lins, L.U.C. & Rebel Babel Film Orchestra, and the collective Łona x Konieczny x Krupa, have also earned nominations, with three each, in categories that highlight the diversity and richness of Polish music.

    This year’s special mention goes to the album “Moje serce w Warszawie” by Sorry Boys, nominated for Album of the Year in the Poetic and Literary Song category, commemorating the 79th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising.
