Soft and playful Poetics, Chamber atmosphere. Everything in the form of intelligently humorous, often ripe self-ironic texts or short veršovánek of quoting or additional individual songs. Speech, which cannot be emulated. And above all: the famous guitar arts. Plíhal is guitarist chapter to herself.
