Not your average folk music, Matador jumps from harmonic melodies to hard hitting rhythms without a moment's notice. Mathew and Dorota fuse together their musical expressions and their view of the world to create haunting songs of longing and wonder. Matador's music is pushed forward by the driving rhythms of Mathew's guitar, while Dorota's violin pulls the listener into another world. The instruments are overlaid by Mathew and Dorota's harmonic vocals, singing lyrics that paint pictures of the interplay between humans and nature. Their songs are dynamic, full of changing tempos and moods that can switch from comfortably mellow to gut-wrenchingly intense in a heartbeat. Combining their musical experiences with flashes of Polish and American folk music, their songs are inspired by the interplay between creation and destruction.
