Fans of Dorota Jarema had to wait years for a new solo album by this talented singer. Soni, which is being launched June 23, testifies to Jarema's love of black music as well as jazz and funk. Many music critics describe her voice as the most "black" of any Polish singer because of the feeling with which she imbues her music and the timbre of her voice.

Among the 11 pieces on the album in English, there are hits by Burt Bacharach, the popular composer of the 1970s, as well as by Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, Barry Manilow, Andy Williams and Kool & The Gang. The album also contains a beautiful interpretation of the song "Calling You" from the film Bagdad Café.

Krzysztof Herdzin, the well-known Polish composer, arranged all the songs on the album. American singer Lou Johnson is a guest performer in two songs on the CD. All the musicians who appear on Soni will take part in a special live concert to launch the album June 23 at Warsaw's Fabryka Trzciny Club.

Jarema, who is a violinist as well as a singer, started recording songs for Polish Radio programs when she was just three years old. In 1993 she took part in the Festival of Polish Song in Opole. Since 1994 she has performed in the popular Olga Lipińska television cabaret show. She has also recorded Polish-language musical soundtracks for Walt Disney productions Hercules and The Lion King.
