Our full catalogue

Dear reader, hello !

These past months have certainly been the most productive in the history of Vinilkosmo and we thought a little retrospective would be just right before we all go for a big sunny break. So, we gathered all the new references produced since last fall and put them up on our home page to help you tune up your summer.

Along with this, a curiosity that will certainly come as a surprise, as much to you as it did to us, and a wink to the long and winding road since the first heroic recordings. Then, a new Ukrainian production to demonstrate, once again, the liveliness of Esperanto in Eastern Europe, also increasingly present in our catalogue.

As the days grow, the first international meetings and the preparation of the festivals and various congresses are well underway too, announcing some great days traveling around the world.

So, unfold your maps, and sharpen your ears !

Centennial of the Esperanto Congress at Boulogne sur Mer

During the Easter holidays, between the 25th and 30th of March, the Boulogne Esperanto Congress in French Pas-de-Calais gathered esperantists from all Europe to celebrate the centennial of this traditional meeting.

The spotlight was on music, with, on opening day, a stroll from the theatre to the town hall following the local brass brass band halting at Zamenhof Place where flowers were offered in memory of the father of Esperanto. Then, the Esperanto anthem, "La Espero", very officially preceded the French national anthem ... to the great satisfaction of an astonished audience !

The Vinilkosmo stand, presenting all our productions, didn't fail to attract attention thanks to DJ Flo and Rikardo's contagious mood. The younger JEFO visitors danced to the rhythm of Rock and Reggae by Strika Tango, Esperanto Desperado, La Rolls, JoMo, La Porkoj, Dolchamar, and more including an electronic version of "La Espero" by Ralph Glomp.

On Sunday evening the internationally known but also local singer, Jacques Yvart (VKKD 19) performed brilliantly followed by Breton vocal ensemble, Meven (VKKD 43 and VKKD71). A great show that had us sailing the seven seas with superb choreography, 25 singers, actors and musicians.

After Jacques Yvart's concert, under the audience's questioning about a new album, Jacques and several translators, such as Marcel Redoulez from La Kompanoj (VKKD 25), started then and there to work on a project with Esperanto translations of Jacques' songs drawn from several albums (' Hello peace ', ' Citizen of the world ' ... ), and original titles in Esperanto were suggested.

This project may take two years since Jacques will be touring, taming the songs before recording them.

To be followed....
