I've never been to Poland, but having witnessed some of the worst driving i've ever seen in Prague, i wish her the best of British.
BTW always makes sense to wear your seatbelt...tut...tut!
Now who can tell us what it says on the text message?...over to you Criss??


At last the official video is available containing a montage of clips from the Polish birthday concert DVD.

In other news Ewa will play a special New Years Eve concert later tonight in Gdansk (Poland).

Friday, 30 December 2011


There's never a bad time for a bit of DLW as i've been heard to say from time to time.
Right back to the beginning of this adventure for me tonight.
When i first heard this song and watched this video (thanks Criss!) i never suspected what a impact this (then 16) year old young lady would have on my life.
For that i'm eternally grateful.

On behalf of all here at Ewa Farna UK i would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year!

Junkmale, Benjy and Criss!


Jaky to je from 2008. Footage cuts off a bit short unfortunately.  Most of Ewa's Official promo videos are now only viewable via Vevo which doesn't allow sharing :-(

Sympathy from all here at Ewa Farna UK to our Czech friends and readers on the death of former Czech President Vaclav Havel.
A great man.


Ewa lip-synced her way through Dest (sans band) on a Charity TV event for disabled children yesterday 17/12/11.

Saturday, 17 December 2011


Not much info on this one at the moment.
As far as i can make out it is from yesterday 16/12/11 on a Slovak TV programme?
More info if and when......

*UPDATE The featured song was indeed from a Slovak TV show called 'Legends of Pop'.  Ewa's song translates roughly as 'Water, that keeps me afloat' and was originally recorded by Czechoslovakian band Elan. (Hat tip to Jirka for the additional info).

chat de Ewa en WWW.EWA-FARNA.CZ

Ayer Ewa participo en una session de preguntas en vivo con otros amigos en link AQUI parece no haber ningunas "revelaciones" nuevas hehehe o algo muy importante que haya salido de las preguntas.

Thursday, 15 December 2011


For a while now Ewa has been a semi regular guest at Cechomor concerts.
Cechomor are a traditional/folk Czech group and are very popular in their homeland.
I like this.  It shows a different side to Ewa and a good one methinks.
As far as i'm aware Ewa has recorded with the band but unfortunately i don't have much detail regarding this.
Enjoy the video.


Yesterday Ewa took part in a live Internet Q+A session over with our friends at

It's not translating very well but there doesn't seem to anything really important to report from it.

Sama sobě Music Video

Music video to "Sama sobě", promoting Czech Live DVD.

NIE PRZEGAP Music Video premiere

Finally, after long time we will be able to see new music video by Ewa to song Nie Przegap. Premiere is scheduled at 11:45 (10:45 GMT) on this Friday (9.12) on VIVA Poland music television. No information on availability on the Internet, but I'm pretty sure it will be there sooner or later, through official channel (later) or unofficial (sooner).
Can't wait any more to watch this:)

Polish Live DVD certified GOLD

Really good information coming from Ewa herself, via her Facebook.
Polish live DVD sold more than 5,000 copies, and well... if you are in Poland it's enough for a DVD to receive a gold certification. Christmas are just around the corner, and the DVD sounds like a perfect gift for a lot of fans who did not buy it yet, so I expect this number to rise. Who knows, maybe we can get platinum...
It's worth noticing that it's very rare here in Poland for a DVD to get platinum, this year just three were awarded; even gold is not that popular - some 13 DVD this year got this level of certification.
Congratulations Ewa!

Wednesday, 7 December 2011


It looks like Ewa has signed a contract to release a branded MP3/MP4 player exclusively to Tesco stores in the Czech Republic?
There will also be an autograph session at the launch of the product in a Tesco store (somewhere that isn't translating???).
You can read the full story here -

Isn't it going to be fun trying to get hold of one of these?

BMM from Ostrava 03/12/11

Some great footage is emerging from yesterdays concert in Ostrava (Cze).
Audience recording so sound quality not 100%.


Ewa has lent her vocal talent to what i presume is a charity recording with various other Polish artists.
You can hear the song and view the video here -,310548

You can spot Ewa in the video and her vocal parts are pretty easy to recognise.
Due to the failings of Google Translate that's all i really know about this project unfortunately. Apologies but i wasn't aware of this until today?
More information when/if we get it.

Ewa has become the patron of

It looks to me to be some sort of online and offline language course in the Czech Republic?
Obviously, spending a few weeks with me here in Belfast would improve her English greatly :-)


Way back to 2007 tonight and living proof that you CAN have braces and still look cute -

An early Christmas present (to myself) this morning as both live CD/DVD's arrived together. Thanks to Fan and Bontonland.
Full reviews from one of us as soon as possible.


I have received 2 lengthy emails re the site in Spanish lately.
Whilst i appreciate those who wish to get in touch please note that neither myself nor Criss speak Spanish.
It would be much appreciated if you could direct mails in Spanish to Benjykenjy and those in Polish to Criss. English can go to any of the team members.
Thanks for your cooperation.

The Cesky Slavic awards are a big deal in the Czech Republic.
News is filtering through that Ewa has once again been awarded the Bronze Award (3rd Place) in the female singer of the year category.  Congratulations from all here at Ewa Farna UK.

As far as i am aware highlights from the show will be aired on Czech TV tomorrow 27/11/11 at 8.00pm (CET) on the Nova Channel.

At this stage i'm unsure if Ewa performed at the ceremony?  If so, i'll try and obtain the video footage as soon as possible.

Can't wait?  Here's Maska from CS 2010.


Ok..i's actually Saturday.
It's been a quiet week in Ewaworld so a bit more from Prague in Dec 2009.

Sama Sobe - English translation

I decided to make translation of Sama Sobe, as it's really short song, but with really nice lyrics. Nice and quick task:)
However, today I found a great video of Sama Sobe with English translation already included, so hereby I let myself present it. Mine is slightly different, but this is good enough.

Video come from, I believe that they are authors of this video and text, you can find there a lot of English translations.

Nie Przegap on 'The Voice of Poland'

I present you video of the second song sang by Ewa in 'The Voice of Poland' last Saturday.
There were some technical problems with Ewa's in-ear monitor as you may notice on a video, it stopped working. Second thing, you can see is that it's not a full version of the song, the second part was shortened a bit, don't know exactly why.

Polish Live DVD

Yesterday, November 14th, Polish live DVD was officially released. Official on Monday, nevertheless there are confirmed informations that in one shop it was available earlier last week, even on Thursday. However it was a single case, which did not influence overall impression of the premiere.

Interesting part of this DVD is a booklet with names of people who attended the concert and signed a special list. Really nice:)
Here's the gallery with photos of a DVD.

First opinions are positive, however those are very first days after premiere and everyone is really excited about the album. Later on, when people get used to DVD, we will probably see some smaller or bigger drawbacks.

Ewa Farna UK is still in need of at least one more full time contributor.
It does take a certain level of commitment to update the Blog on a regular basis with news, views and opinions on the world of Ewa Farna for her English speaking fans.
Preferably from the UK but with at least a good knowledge of English.  A knowledge of Czech and/or Polish would be a distinct advantage.
Anyone who is interested please contact either myself or one of the other members as soon as possible.


Ewa appeared on Czech TV this morning.  Gave a short interview and performed Sama Sobe -

Sunday, 13 November 2011


As previously reported Ewa was a special guest on talent show 'The Voice of Poland' last night and performed a very shortened version of Bez Lez with some of the contestants.
The girl is pretty good, i think?  You??

Saturday, 12 November 2011


I've had a few emails asking me about the MTV Europe awards which were held here in my capital City.
Unfortunately i can't really comment on them as i didn't attend any of the events.  For two reasons -

1. Very few tickets were made available to the general public here.  Those that were available were changing hands for substantial amounts of money.

2. There was nobody performing that i wanted to see? I'm not a fan of anyone who was here at all.

It was a major boost for Belfast.  Hotels etc. were full which was obviously great for our local economy.  The event was very well organised which can only be a good thing but there was wasn't much going on personally for me.


Well...ok......Saturday morning video.  It's probably still Friday night somewhere in the world?
This week right back to the beginning of this adventure.

Friday, 11 November 2011


Ewa has no less than two appearances on Polish TV this weekend.
Tomorrow Saturday 12/11 she will be a special guest on 'Voice of Poland' and on Sunday 13/11 she will also guest on 'Szansa na sukses' (chance of sucess??). Link is not translating very well so i hope this info is correct?
We hope to have the videos of both performances here as soon as possible.

Thursday, 10 November 2011


I wrote a rather long piece on Kim over at the old site (which about 2 people probably read!) so i don't intend to make the same mistake twice.
We are all aware that Ewa's first hit or breakthrough came with Mels me vubec Rad/Sam na Sam.
The song Teenage Superstar has been covered many many times by many different artists the world over but it was originally written for Dutch singer/TV presenter/actress Kim Lian. There are sometimes heated arguments over who was the first but i can assure you 100% that it was Kim's version.
Kim has fronted numerous TV programmes in her native Holland and is at present staring in the stage production of Legally Blonde.
She has released 2 studio albums 'Balance' and 'Just Do It'.  Both are pretty easily picked up on sites like eBay. A DVD called 'Balance:The Experience' was also released at the same time as her first album and initial copies of 'Just Do It' also came with a bonus DVD.  A few singles have been released since and rumours persist that she will release another studio album at some point.
Kim sings in English although some of the DVD bonus material is in Dutch.
I totally recommend both albums. Youtube is your friend.  You won't be disappointed.  Trust me.
Note some of the similarities between the video and parts of the Ticho/Cicho video??

DVD/CD of Ewa's Brno birthday concert is now available to pre-order from Bontonland -


On 14/11 to promote the forthcoming release of the new Live CD/DVD album in the Czech Republic Ewa will hold an autograph session at the main Bontonland shop in Prague.
At this stage i don't have the information as to when the session will begin.
If anyone is attending and wants to submit a short report please contact myself or one of the other admins.
Would i like to attend?  Oh yes :-)

Welcome to the shortest book review in the history of short book reviews.
I managed to obtain a copy of Ewa Farna the Book when i was in Brno in September. It thought it would be easy to find but it was only after trying several book shops that i found it.  Much to the bemusement of the shop assistant who foolishly attempted to have a conversation with me!
Anyway.  For obvious reasons, i can't read a word of it, but it does have a nice spread of colour photographs.  No unfamiliar shots.
One day i WILL be able to read it.


Friday night again already!
Simply the best all time favourite.
Loved it when i first heard it.  Still love it now. Only regret is that i've never heard it live.
THE perfect pop song...........????

Tuesday, 1 November 2011


I would like to welcome Criss as a contributor on Ewa Farna UK.
Criss is a student and is from Katowice in Poland.
Criss was the person who first introduced me to Ewa (it's a long story) and for that i'll always be eternally grateful.
I am very pleased that he has offered to contribute to the site and i hope his stay will be a long and happy one.


First of all, I'd like to say hello to everyone. I'm Criss, I will try to make sure that all latest news from Ewa are available here, for you, in English.
Referring to latest Junkmale post I'd like to make things a bit more clear. Recently the main issue about Ewa was her weight, gutter press had topics like "Did she put on weight?", "Oh, it looks like Ewa gained some weight" etc. Yes, it's true, Ewa herself admitted that she gained some weight. Let me translate some parts of this Facebook post.

I'm fed up with this, come on, get a grip. I'm a singer, I focus on my voice, I don't want to be a slim model! I'm an average teenager and, really ... I'm sorry to hear that. Do all people need to be slim like skeletons? Is there any law on that? Are there any showbusiness rules? Leave my fat alone and care about your own problems. And I wish you that they are so trivial, as my weight.
Have a good night!

So, as you may notice, she really don't care. In recent (last Sunday) interview in breakfast television Dzień Dobry TVN she explained this a little bit more. She said that:

"I'm always on the road, I don't have time to eat properly, exercise. I feel healthy and normal. I don't feel like I'm fat." Then after question, whether her clothing size has changed she replied with laugh that no, but her bust size changed:)

All in all, she does not find any problem with this.

SAMA SOBE (PRAGUE 23/10/2011)

Really nice version of Sama Sobe (sans band) from a Toyfair in Prague on 23/10/11.
Sound and picture quality aren't great but it's a nice performance.
Why is this not a hit the world over?  It's just gets better and better.

Monday, 31 October 2011


Ewa made a rather emotional Facebook post this morning regarding her relationship with her local press -

Google translate is lacking (as per usual) but it does appear that she is getting just about fed up with the negativity and sometimes totally false news items that are reported about her.
For obvious reasons I'm not fully aware of what goes on in either Poland or the Czech Republic with regard to any specific details but i do pick up rumours on various other sites and blogs that i look at on a daily basis.
Some of the recent stories i.e. she is pregnant, has already had a baby etc are total nonsense and should be treated with the contempt that they deserve.  They also seem obsessed with her weight which would, no doubt, be upsetting for any teenage girl.  She looks pretty good to me??
Unfortunately this is just a symptom of the 'Celebrity Culture' society we live in?  One were every move is watched and reported by a press system which seems to glory in reporting every negative aspect of a celebrities life.  Were there is nothing to report they just invent something or blow a trivial matter out of all proportion.
Some celebrities thrive on the attention.  Others don't.  Ewa clearly falls into the latter category.
As far as i can tell she has nothing whatsoever to be anxious about.  She knows that she is a role model to young fans and acts accordingly.  From a very young age she has grown up in the spotlight and has behaved in an impeccable manner.
Words, however, hurt. And the stories are difficult to ignore. As a celebrity she is going to have to learn to cope with the sometimes unwanted attention that comes with fame and popularity.
I'm sure, like myself, we all want to give her 100% support in what appears to be a difficult time for her.

Looks like Ewa has signed a contract to promote for the Subway chain of fast food stores in Poland?
Attached is one of the images from the promo photoshoot.  You can view the rest here -

I never like to be negative but i must admit that i'm not impressed with these shots at all. Say no more about the 'cleveage', no, no!!


Ewa was a special guest on the Polish version of 'Strictly' called 'Dance with the Stars'.
Video below -

I know some are waiting for my full report and review of my recent trip to Brno for Ewa's birthday concert.
Sorry for the delay :-(
I have been ill but i am working on it.........really!!

Noticias de Ewa

Al parecer la nueva cancion de Ewa llamada "Saba Sobě" no va hacer parte de algun nuevo album, mas que solo parte del contenido de "extras" de su video DVD de cumpleaños en la Republica Checa grabado en Brno hace unas semanas, de todos modos la cancion ya esta a la venta en iTunes Link AQUI

Tambien el video DVD de su concierto de cumpleaños de Polonia estará a la venta el 14/11/11 puedes pre-ordenar AQUI .


Tonight's selection is Tam Gdzie Ty from Ewa's first live DVD.
One of my favourites.  I love the original but for me Ewa's version is much better.
When you think of how young she was here it's a superb, powerful performance.


I would like to officially welcome Benjykenjy as a contributor to Team Ewa Farna UK.
Benjy is Mexican-American and will mostly be responsible for the Spanish section of the site.  I feel that this is a fantastic opportunity to reach Spanish speaking fans and i hope it will be a success.
Benjy was a Forum moderator over at the old site and has been a friend for some time now.
I hope his stay will be a long and happy one.

I would still need at least 1 other regular contributor for the site.
It does ask for a certain level of commitment and the person would preferably be from the UK or at least have English as their first language. A knowledge of Polish and/or Czech would be a distinct advantage.
If you are interested please leave a comment or use the facebook link with your contact details.

Nueva cancion de Ewa Farna "Sama Sobě"

Ha salido una nueva cancion de Ewa farna, esta cancion no es parte de su ultimo Album llamado Ewacuacja.
no estoy muy seguro si es un nuevo sencillo o parte de algun nuevo album en checo proximo a salir.
personalmente la cancion me gusta y no estoy muy seguro de la letra pero se puede traducir mas o menos el titulo de la cancion a "A mi misma" en español.

la cancion la puedes escuchar en videos de youtube o en este link


DVD from Ewa's 18th Brithday Concert in Poland is due for release on 14/11/11.
Once again this date is subject to change and no track listing or any other details are available at the moment.
I can't find anywhere yet that is accepting pre-orders?  More news on that if and when i find it.
Attached is a pic of the proposed DVD sleeve -

Thanks to Criss for the info.

Saturday, 22 October 2011


According to an Official announcement by Universal the DVD of Ewa's birthday concert is due for release in November.  Actual date is not yet known.

I have my doubts as this is a very quick turnaround.  I would more inclined to presume early 2012?
Whether or not an audio CD will be part of the package has not yet been confirmed.
When it is released you will be able to purchase here -


In her recent BRNO birthday concert Ewa played a new song Sama Sobe.
It's rumoured to be a forthcoming single.  So far we have only heard live versions but a studio version has now emerged.  You can hear it here -

I think it's fantastic.  You?


I must admit to being rather confused as to what exactly is going on (in Ewa World) with regard to the upcoming MTV Europe awards ceremony in Belfast.
What i do know is that she has been nominated in the Best Polish Artist category.
You can vote but how and where i don't know.
Those who win the 'local' categories can then go on to contest the Best European Artist (i think?).
You can vote for Ewa here -

Whether or not this means that Ewa will attend in Belfast or if she will perform here i can't quite decipher?
Obviously, i hope she does (both).  Allthough from what i have read in the local press there are very few tickets going to made available to the general public and those that are available are scarce and are changing hands for sizeable amounts of money.

Until something more concrete comes from Team Ewa i can't state anything more with any accuracy.
Watch this space, methinks.
