Dear reader, hello !
After some big headaches late last year, the burning of the Vinilkosmo premises having absorbed quite a bit of energy,
the first quarter of 2012 has nevertheless been rich in projects, and we're delighted to have more positive perspectives
The big event is undoubtedly the first album entirely in Esperanto by Zhou-Mack Mafuila, an old roadster whose musical
and cultural origins are just too widespread for the tail to be told in a language other than one made for the entire
world .. to discover below!
Eterne Rima also has a surprise for us coming next month, confirming the presence of Hip Hop on the growing Esperanto
music horizon, and an exclusive offer to grab during the entire month of May.
Along side videos and music samples, a new online radio to listen to, all explained beneith.
While wishing you a relaxing moment, thank you all for your support and interest in the Esperanto music scene!

Radio Muzaiko has been broadcasting on line since last summer with all-day programs and music exclusively in Esperanto,
an important percentage of which are artists from the Vinilkosmo catalog. Muzaiko and Vinilkosmo are working in
partnership to develop Esperanto culture through web radio broadcasting.
You can listen to Muzaiko with your computer or on your cell phone with the Android program.
Muzaiko site can be found at:

You can also use this program for Android:
or any other program you choose.
Muzaiko works through the Internet server Radionomy, that also hosts several other radios. For Radionomy to renew its
contract with Muzaiko, there must be a growing number of listeners.
We are therefore counting on you to listen to Muzaiko and support broadcasting of your favorite music!
Fire in Donneville, follow-up
After the fire in our studios at the end of last year, and during an uncertain period of five months while Vinilkosmo
had no insurance for the practice and recording studios, we have finally found a solution.
The studios are again insured since the 1st of April. This has only been possible through the Eurokka association,
because no isurance company had accepted to cover the buildings after the fire in September.
Vinilkosmo, under the cover of Eurokka, has signed an agreement with a new insurance company to repair and make yearly
checkups on the fire control and electrical installations demanded by the authorities. The repairing is now underway,
and in February and March Vinilkosmo began demolishing the burnt up buildings.
The construction company has just begun rebuilding first week of April with the money provided from the previous
insurance company. Unfortunately, this company refuses to cover the total cost of construction, claiming that the
building was too decrepit.
Thus, Vinilkosmo will be building a lot for the months to come, but we haven't forgotten our many musical projets in
progress, nor the ears of our readers!
Thank you for your interest and attention.
Plej muzikajn bondezirojn al chiuj legantoj !
