Wbrew Pozorom is a Polish folk-poetry-shanty music band. The group includes various instruments such as guitars, banjo, violin and flutes. The sound of the instruments is complemented by the voices of almost all the band members. Their music is strongly inspired by sailing - the passion that binds the team together, as well as poetry and Polish folk music. In September 2015, the music group Wbrew Pozorom produced its first album: “Miliony Gwiazd” (eng. Millions of Stars), which contained original material created by the group in early years. The band is currently preparing to release a new album.
