" At the end of a more discreet cycle of his public life, singer-songwriter Paul Kunigis returns with Yallah , his new album A mosaic of influences and cultures in which the singer has bathed and beautifully expressed since the days of the Jeszcze Raz band of which he was the figurehead, this project focuses on time and love.
