Commemorating Poland and German relations

Ambassador Anna Raduchowska-Brochwicz of Poland in South Africa hosted a jazz concert at her residence to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the signing on the 17th of June 1991 the Treaty on Good Neighbourhood and Friendly Cooperation between Poland and Germany. She said that this was not an easy process to reach especially after the atrocities of World War II.

After the collapse of the communist regime in Poland and the dismantling of the Berlin Wall thereafer, the Treaty was signed by two fully independent and democratic neigbours.

Ambassador Raduchowska-Brochwicz further went on to say that the signing of the Treaty was a milestone that contributed to the strenghthened relations with Germany as well as Poland's membership of NATO and the EU.

Germany is Poland's biggest trade and investment partner as well as an inportant political ally. The biggest achievement, however, said Ambassador Raduchowska-Brochwicz, is the flourishing people-to-people relations between the two countries.

The audience at this intimate concert were treated to excellent jazz by the Marcus Wyatt Quintet. Marcus Wyatt on saxophone, who's album 'One night in the Sun' was awarded best jazz album at the SA Music Awards last year, introduced the band. Sisonke Xonti was on saxophone, Thandi Ntuli on piano and vocals, Justin Badenhorst on drums and Benjamin Jephta on bass and he composed some of the music played.

Wyatt pronounced Ntuli and Jephta as highly talented, young South African musicians who are going places.

As a bridge between Polish and South African musicians, Polish born Zbigniew Kobak, a multi-instrumentalist musician, briefly joined the band on accordion.
