Emotions enchanted in low sounds
I love people, traveling, communing with nature. Mindfulness for the small subtleties of this world, the search for beauty, the admiration for the fleetingness of the moment – these are the things which inspire me to writing music and telling stories with the help of sounds.
I look forward to each day that will bring new experiences and images as a gift. They make us richer and become an inspiration to create. I wish you a lot of love, smile and cheerfulness!

I’m a bass guitarist, double bass player, composer, songwriter, co-leader and founder of the Mundinova band whose debut album entitled „W drodze” released in 2021. In 2022, I plan to release the debiut album as a leader – Marzena Cybulka Quintet. I’ve completed the 2nd degree Wrocław’s Jazz and Popular Music School in Tomasz Grabowy’s bass guitar class and also holds BA of the Music Academy named after K. Szymanowski at the faculty of Jazz, Education and Entertainment Music in Katowice in the bass guitar class of Adam Kowalewski and MA in environmental protection at the University of Wroclaw.
„…Cybulka, who easily steals the show with her bass virtuosity, which should make many bassists truly envious. She is simply sensational and beautifully exemplifies that female intuition and feel are much more important than technical proficiency and showmanship trickery, albeit she lacks neither. She really has the Groove!”
