Kanaan Very personal approach to faith and to God of Jakub Kornacki, has met with an experience as an actor.

To create a band, such musicians as Cezary Paciorek, Grzegorz Nadolny, Waldemar Franczyk and many others have been invited.
Ahora Tango Music of Astor Piazzolla is a passion by itself. It charms with the beauty, kills with longing. Every note carries something imperceptible, ethereal, something that cause, that even silence has it sense. Music, that we play, tugs at heartstrings, discovers desires of our souls. This storm of emotions cannot be locked in a record. It can be experienced only by tangible contact. That is why, our performances are never meetings of two separate worlds, artist and audience. They are live, never ending expression. This fire burns all the time. And nothing remains. Only passion.
