Additional notes
The music of Kult has its roots in post-punk/new wave, but incorporates elements of rock, ska, jazz, traditional balladry, reggae, and poetry. From the start, the group has had a recognizable sound, and is distinguished by the voice and provocative lyrics of the lead singer, Kazik Staszewski.

Kult became famous for the atmosphere they created at their concerts, and the unorthodox message in their songs. Kult’s songs attack ‘the system’, understood as a conglomerate of the communist state apparatus, the Catholic Church, and others. In the 1990s, Kult took on the ‘new system’, which was seen as founded on pseudo-democratic leaders, the clergy and corporations.
