Dear reader, hello !
Although there are many surprising projects in progress, or about to succeed, we will not tell you about Kores new album
the vocal recording of which has just been achieved in our studio and should be released this spring, no noooo ... We
won't even speak of Jacques Yvarts awaited visit to the studio next May, nor even say a thing about the Hip Hop
compilation slowly but surely evolving with serious advances from Pafklik, Dj kunar and the Korean duet .. noooo no nooo
On the other hand, concerning Martin Wiese, guitarist, singer and composer of swedish band, Persone, we will go on and
on as his album is no longer a project but a reality after two years of work for a stunning result, quite up to the
personality of this inevitable hinge and one of the big stars of the Esperanto-Rock scene .. vidéos and all .. the works
And then, as always, some echoes and links from the world, with news from Initials DC in Germany, Daphne Lawless in New
Zealand, Italian 'Rêverie', Zhou Mack & la Fève, still at it, and not to forget an invitation to note down in your
diaries for the FESTO festival coming again this summer !

Pli ol nenio
The French "one man band", Initials DC, installed in Francfort is now polishing several songs in Esperanto which will
soon be presented to the public.
This music will be mainly accessible through Internet though an 8 cm CD edition is under project for those who still
like to have a physical instead of virtual support ( anyone out there ?)
Initials DC already has a big enough repertory to ensure a concert entirely in Esperanto like their last demonstration
for IS in Germany.
And, with a little luck, an Initials DC show might be featured in FESTO this summer, if IJK and the U.K. in Asia leave
From Milan, the story of a musical and linguistic experiment, aiming at universality as we all do, has gone straight to
our souls !
Rêverie (Daydream) was founded in 1996, by Milanese composer and guitarist, Valerio Vado, eager to create a bridge
between the sounds of today and those of yesterday, drawing his inspiration from baroque and renaissance, Italian,
European and Mediterranean tradition, mixing instruments from then, with electronic sounds and various languages.
In 2006, Esperanto enabled Andrea Fontana, and friend of Alberto Sozzi, musician of Rêverie, was solicited to add
Esperanto to the repertory and it was successfully that Valerio Vado and Andrea collaborated for a first recording,
"Kiam alvenos la fino" (when the end arrives). Since, two other titles in Esperanto were born, "Plurestantaj memoroj"
(persistent memories) and "Danco de l'maro" (the sea dance).
The originality of the cocktail, which they like to define as progressive-folk, marrying modern keyboards, percussions,
mandolins, banjos, horns, choirs and more, has already traveled through 3 demo Cds, several concerts and radio shows and
generated good critics as well. And now, the group is recording the Esperanto titles and some songs drawn from the
writings of Shakespeare !?!
For anything :

Daphne Lawless, from New Zealand, has just released a new English album, "Anastasia", available through Random Static.
Daphne has been working for a long time on an album entirely in Esperanto, with both translated and original Esperanto
lyrics, and is currently negotiating with her label to produce it. But first, she wants to conclude her current project,
"Small group Psychosis", that she has recently finished composing and began to record. This album will present two new
titles in Esperanto "Peko" (the sin) and "Fajreroj" (sparks) drawn from another of her Cds, "Undinal Songs".
Daphne always plays alone, but perhaps not for much longer as she plans to recruit a second musician to enrich her
intelligent 'electro-pop-gothic' sound.
Daphne is ready to play anywhere against expenses, so maybe we'll get to see her on some coming Esperanto festival stage

Zhou Mack & la Fève
The Zhou Mack & la Fève Reggae groups web site has been entirely renewed and Esperanto music lovers will be pleased to
find a new title in Esperanto, "Se vin englutas la akvo" (If the water absorbs you) that comes to enrich the African and
Reggae Esperanto music repertory along with their first title, "Internacia amo" (international love).
