Remont Pomp (repair of pumps) is a band playing ethnic, avant-garde and improvised music, which was founded in 2003 at the Polish Association for People with Intellectual Disabilities Ko?o in Gda?sk, created by the association's charges. The band's inspiration is ethnic music with an emphasis on the richness of African music. Remont Pomp also discovers the space of experimental music by playing unusual instruments and objects not usually associated with music.

The band uses a variety of instruments, starting from ethnic percussion instruments, i.e. djembe, balafon, kalimbas, log drum, through melodic instruments: metallophone, chromatic bells, tang drum, and ending with objects such as glasses, bottles, bowls, jugs or barrels.

Remont Pomp has released three albums so far. The first one entitled "Golden Platinum" released in 2012 was recorded with Miko?aj Trzaska and Mike Majkowski. The next album entitled "Pomp Power" was recorded by the band with Miko?aj Trzaska, it was released in December 2016 by kilogram records.

At the end of 2022, the band recorded the third album "Sam Jest Pompa Vol.1" with Miko?aj Trzaska (saxophone, clarinet) and Adam ?uchowski (double bass) and as the title says, at least one more part from this recording session will be released later.
Thanks to these meetings, the band's music on the albums gained a more free jazz, improvised character.

This is the second part of the session "Sam jeste? pompa" ("You are the pump yourself") – on 180g vinyl incl. downloadcode. The album "You are the pump yourself vol.2" was recorded with the participation of Miko?aj Trzaska (saxophones, clarinet) and Adam ?uchowski (double bass).
