Macio Moretti is probably the busiest musician in Poland. He collaborates on a regular basis with eleven bands Perkusista zespołu Starzy Singers, muzyk newjazz band Mitch & Mitch, ParisTetris, Baaba, Baaba Kulka, Mołr Drammaz, Bassisters Orchestra, Shofar, Królowie Życia, Alte Zachen, and many other projects.
Moretti is known not only for his musical skills, but also for his characteristic sense of humour, artistic nonchalance and arrogance, which can be heard in his playing and his compositions. It can even be found as well at his internet site (see: www.maciomoretti.art.pl).
As an example of Moretti’s artistic approach: in the summer of 2012 he performed Koncerty Balkonowe –Concert on the Balcony,– on Mokotowska Street, Warsaw. Fourteen musicians played on seven balconies. In 2013, at the OFF Festival, Katowice, Poland, he played a special concert with the Polish legend of light music, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Zbigniew Wodecki, who is well known to every Pole.
He is one of the founders of Warsaw’s improvised scene. He co-founded one of the most recognised Warsaw record labels. Lado ABC Records releases albums by young Polish musicians, and also, since 2010, has organised the Lado in Town festival, in Warsaw, Poland.
As a graphic designer, Moretti has collaborated with the Polish weekly, Przekrój, and with a very popular Polish rock band, Hey.
