It comprises a collection of new songs by the author, recorded in a chamber line-up with guitarist Miroslav Chyška (Illustratosphere, J.A.R., Sexy Dancers) and bass guitarist Jakub Vejnar (Muff), and featuring pianist Beata Hlavenková in one of the compositions. The work of Dorota Barová, including her album “Iluzja” (Illusion), is a colourful musical mosaic framed by the velvety timbre of the singer’s voice and her characteristic style of composition.
