San Martín 54

San Martin 54 is a music inspired by a house in a town in Argentina where I lived some time ago. Getting away from the city, was at that time, a search to try to clear up the conflicts that, in my opinion, modern life entails ... the way of relating to things, and to people. The music has some polyrhythms and rhythmic displacements, which at times seem to “fight”. At the end of the song, the flute, guitar and percussion improvise, one on top of the other, generating points of clash between musical ideas.

This song talks about the communion of Latin American rhythms with African music, and the strong influence that Africa has had on our music. Latin America, as a diverse continent without borders, is one, and in it, the roots of ancestral African cultures flourish. The music, as usual, acts as an integrating element between cultures, telling us we share a common history that embrace us, the history of mankind.

Suddenly everything stopped in infinite silence. Humanity is on pause waiting for its destiny. It is time to make a decision, the wind hides his voice, and nobody hears the music of the spheres. We must be one again: Humanity and Mother Nature. Faith and hope in our sacred music. Faith and hope in our sacred humanity. Beyond our sacred Music, beyond love. This song was composed during the Covid quarantine with these amazing artists and people. Kazakhstan and its millennial voice, Amsterdam, Cuba and South America.

Retoño (Sprout)

Earth - Water - Wind - Fire Four Elements, Four Artists. The Far East and the deepest Southwest in ask for mercy in “Sprout”, a prayer for our Mother Earth.

SOY (I AM)

Sasha: “SOY” (I am) is a romantic, Italian stylized song, where our relationship with our “mother earth” is presented as an interaction. To thrive you need to treat each other with care, love, attention and respect - it’s the only way to keep it alive … The absence of those above will, eventually, lead to disruption and disconnection, and finally - “death” of it. Mariana: This song is the voice of the earth in the first person, crying out to embrace it and give it a hope of change. Mother Earth feels without strength and needs to recover.
