Sorry Boys’ album “My Heart in Warsaw” was created for the 79th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising. It had its premiere on Friday, July 21, during a concert in Wolności Park. – We would like to take you on a journey from the summer of 1944 to today’s Warsaw, where we live, beautiful, blooming, this Phoenix from the ashes – said Bela Komoszyńska, singer of Sorry Boys.
For the 79th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising, Sorry Boys created the album “My Heart in Warsaw”. Its main theme is Warsaw. The Sorry Boys concert began at 8 pm in Park Wolności at the Warsaw Uprising Museum. The stage was also visited by: Robert Gawliński, Natalia Szroeder and Dawid Tyszkowski.
– We would like to take you on a journey from the summer of 1944 to today’s Warsaw, where we live, beautiful, blooming, this Phoenix from the ashes – said Bela Komoszyńska, the singer of Sorry Boys, at the concert.
The album consists of eight unique songs whose strength is the memory and love carried by generations. As Komoszyńska noted: “Warsaw rose like a Phoenix from the ashes.” – So we have a link between the summer of 1944 and the Warsaw where we live today, and this is how the time is distributed on the album. We also have a literal link between that time and today, i.e. living insurgents. Three ladies who can be seen in the video for “My Heart in Warsaw” and the voice of Mrs. Halina Rogozińska pseudonym “Mała” end the song “My Heart in Warsaw” – told TVN24 reporter Bela Komoszyńska.
The guitarist is a descendant of the Warsaw Uprising
The album probably wouldn’t have been created if it wasn’t for the personal story of Piotr Blak, one of the band members. His grandfather was Jan Kluczewski, pseudonym Krawczyk, insurgent, soldier of the “Koszta” company. Together with his wife’s cousins, Jacek and Witek Gosławski, he died on September 6, 1944 during the bombing of a tenement house at 7 Moniuszko Street. Jan was 24 at the time.
Years later, the grandson became strongly involved in commemorating his grandfather, he was one of the heroes of the “Roots of Remembrance” campaign. and led to the creation of a plaque commemorating “Koszta” at Moniuszko Street.
– I know about the Warsaw Uprising from my grandmother. Grandma for 40 years talked about great love for her cousins, but also about great love for her beloved husband Janek, or Jan Kulczewski, pseudonym “Krawczyk”, a soldier of the “Koszta” company. The drop hollowed out the rock. Through these stories, I became interested in the subject of the Warsaw Uprising, and then at some point I had a reflection that my grandfather did not fight alone. There were other people there too, other soldiers. And about eight years ago, I began the search for soldiers “Costs”. So far, I have managed to find about 80 families alone with my modest forces – said the musician.
