Maciek is a New Zealand guitarist born in Poland. After spending much of his life in London he moved to New Zealand where he lives with his wife. He currently composes and records his own music, produces records for Kiwi artists, plays live music in and around Aotearoa and has performed at several jazz and blues music festivals. Kanikani Kiwi (Dancing Kiwi) is a Maciek’s second single remix from his solo album AWA, inspired by the beauty of his adopted home Aotearoa New Zealand and indigenous Māori culture. AWA will awaken your senses and become your soundtrack for the South Pacific.
Maciek’s performance at the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival led to this 2015 quote from Sam Edwards of Waikato Times: “…delivering a virtuoso and musically informed lesson in guitar”. More recently, in 2020, a review by Mike Alexander described Maciek as having "a technique and style that’s evocative but understated" with his recent single , Mr Ponsonby having "precise and fluid guitar lines... and a woozy solo that never overplays itself and smooth shifts in time signatures.”
