Our full catalogue

Dear reader, hello !

We've beaten our long silence record with this letter that seems to have become annual. However, the traditional appointment with Christmas hasn't been neglected, and far from it!

Here's a bundle to garnish the bottom of your Christmas tree, or your friends', with no less than six new and very diverse 2014 productions, and "Kristnaska kordo", the no less traditional collection of Christmas songs in Esperanto, back after having hidden for a while.

The main event is certainly the fresh new album by Martin Wiese with his group, La Talpoj. After a seven-year wait, Martin has conquered a new summit and confirmed his presence on the Esperanto rock scene.

Much less expected was Karma, by Jim Petit, a great specialist of a rare guitar technique, and master of surprising oriental sounds. To discover absolutely, and an unusual gift to offer, by all means!

Jhak Le Puil is also back with a new album that moves us as much as it makes us laugh, again and again, and certainly for many years to come.

And finally, if you read on, you will see that Manuel, Maragan', and Kapriol' have also joined the festivities. Energetic, cordial, and generous, as always, with the borderless language lighting the way to wish you, and the entire world, a very Merry Christmas!
