She also took to singing and began to play
the guitar so that she could provide guitar accompaniment. She sang at home for herself and her
friends. At the same time she became fascinated by a black-skinned singer called Nadia Catouse, who
lived in London, as well as by Bułat Okudżawa.
In 1979 she demonstrated her skills as a vocalist in public. Accompanied by her Slowianka female
colleague she appeared in Piwnica Pod Baranami /in a literal translation A cellar under the Lambs/ in
Andrzej Maj's director's diploma performance. That resulted in a series of recitals which she was
giving till Piotr Skrzynecki's death in 1997. Every Saturday she regularly sang there songs by Krzysztof Rychlik, Zbigniew Preisner, Jan Kanty Pawluśkiewicz, Zbigniew Raj and the greatest Piwnica composer Zygmunt Konieczny.
Nearly at the same time she started to work in the urban folklore an tradition section of the
Historical Museum in Cracow, where she has been working as the curator for a long time. Besides being
on charge of the annual Cracow Christmas crib contest, she also supervises the post-contest exhibitions of these exceptional works of art.
She is also known for her car of a hobby-horse known as Lajkonik which walks round Cracow once a year,
on the first Thursday after Corpus Christi.

of, Carols with the Cracow Christmas crib in the backround,Water of life where she presents songs by the most important Polish poets and composers, e.g. Agnieszka Osiecka, Ewa Lipska, Czesław Miłosz, Zygmunt Konieczy, Andrzej Zarycki, Zbigniew Preisner, Jan Kanty Pawluskiewicz.
