Skoumal Petr: Nebo cibule (Or Onion)
After many years of “children’s albums”, an album by Petr Skoumal intended mainly for adults has been published. It brings twelve new songs composed to the lyrics by Ivan Wernish, Pavel Šrut, Ivan Blatný and Jan Vodňanský. Particularly poems by Ivan Wernish and Ivan Blatný have been a powerful source of inspiration for Petr Skoumal.
Besides the composer, who serves most of the musical instruments, you can also hear Jan Hrubý, who traditionally plays excellent violin and also sings a duet with Petr Skoumal: “Dvě deci vodky” (Two Gills of Vodka). In several compositions, the pleasant atmosphere is given a final touch by the children’s choir formed by offspring of Skoumal’s theater friends.
