Our full catalogue

Dear reader, hello !

Not a lot of news from us, and though some is good, our main concern is also the hottest, a rather spectacular fire having destroyed an important part of Vinilkosmo's goods. A nice fat pack of our older cds were in there too, however, this is not necessarily bad news for everyone, an exceptional offer having been set up for the occasion, all described below !

Also, two new cds released, one from Kajto who now scores no less than six, confirming the bands notoriety as one of the first in the world to have produced Esperanto music, and a nice hot one from Cuba to warm up the atmosphere .. A great Reggae project on the horizon too, from Zhou-Mack. ...

Hoping everyone will understand why this letter is a short one, we would like to thank all of you who have supported us through these difficult times, and in advance, all those who are going to do so.

Wishing you pleasant reading, listening and exploring, and probably more before Christmas if we manage to get things back together.

Support Campaign - Vinilkosmo burning

During the night of 19th September 2011, a fire destroyed one of our practice studios as well as storerooms with sound systems, recording materiel, instruments, and other gear, as well as a stock of most of our older disks. Fortunately, our most recent releases were stocked elsewhere.

About 6 000 CDs were involved, including 26 references from years 2000 to 2009. We were able to salvage 2000 CDs, most with booklets and sleeves ruined by the flames and the firefighter's water, but the remaining 4000 were burnt and lost forever.

We hope the insurance companies will compensate enough to rebuild the studio and storerooms and buy new sound systems and instruments. As for the disks lost, we were not covered by a specific insurance. We are still waiting for the verdict of the insurance companies after their evaluation on the 11th of October.

That is why we are launching a support campaign by means of selling the saved CDs with defected booklets, sleeves, and boxes, sold at half price (category 1), and also some intact CDs, but without booklets for 5 EUR (category 2).

Your support will enable us to continue our label's activities with new projects and possibly the re-edition of some of the destroyed CDs.
