“The lyrics are about nostalgic memories of childhood. El Nino sent me a demo and asked me whether I want to work with him. I like to work with young artists, so I said why not,” the famous singer says in the interview for Czech on-line daily iDnes.cz.

Besides her, he achieved to attract Bolek Polívka and Miroslav Donutil for the video clip. Singer Monika Bagarova and goldsmith Luboš Korbička also agreed to cooperate.

Both, El Nino and Eva Pilarová hope that they will meet again.
“In three years I will be celebrating sixty years on the scene, so I told El Nino that if he will be still alive, we will sing Brno on the concert together” the singer jokes.
