For this new album, the musicians of Vojaĝo were looking for another way in a style linked to the aspirations of the moment but which would draw on the sources of progressive rock, jazz rock, world jazz, nu-jazz and contemporary classical music.
As in the first album Planedo nia, the lyrics of Intergalaksia are resolutely committed to the defense of nature and friendship between peoples.
Vojaĝo chooses again to write their texts in Esperanto. This time, a large part is reserved for music punctuated either by poems or by songs in Esperanto.
We invite you to discover this album by listening to it and ordering it on:

The Argentine Ale Kosabela surprised us in 1988 when he first appeared in Kolekto 2000 on the first post-punk-rock album of La Porkoj…
He returns with this song "Bestoj fiaj", which he sang to the music of the punk-hardcore band from Toulouse, Arrach, and thus contributes to the compilation Esperanto Subgrunde 2.
Arrach has been around since June 2002 and debuted in a hardcore punk style. A 5-track demo was quickly recorded in December 2002 to promote the group, and dates began to follow in France. The group has recorded several albums and also participated in a dozen compilations such as "Haute tension", "Punk en France", "20 ans of Radical Antifascism" between 2004 and 2012. Currently Arrach has performed more than 200 concerts throughout France and also in Germany, Belgium , Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Italy, and in Morocco with bands on stage like GBH, Soziedad ALkoholika, Parabellum, Human Alert, Oberkampf, Leftover Crack, Born Dead, Body Bag, Les Amis d'ta femme, Brassen's Not Dead, Les Apaches, Lower Class Brats, Black Bomb A, Trepalium, Offending, Condkoi, Skunk, l'Enfance Rouge, Burning Heads, Les Ramoneurs de Menhirs, Heyoka.

5- Eveline Paŭla
Eveline Paŭla is a Brazilian Esperantist who writes songs in Portuguese and Esperanto.
She likes to make good songs that touch the mind and the heart and also move the body.
Eveline Paula graduated in pedagogy and is now studying Literature.
About the song «Kiu mi estas?» Eveline says: I am very grateful to Julio Caligari who suggested I compose punk rock music, and to his daughter Marianna who inspired the melody for me with her song "Morceguinhos".
I listened to some punk rock songs and I thought this new song should be about something more intimate. Writing the song I felt a duality in my heart like I was good and bad at the same time, and I also remembered people who told me who I was and what I should be and think.
... and this is how this song was born.

Fikiĝu is a mincecore brute band from Brazil (São Paulo region).
Mincecore is a music genre based on grindcore with sociopolitical lyrics.
It is a crude and minimalist form of grindcore.
Their first and only album Atako Sona was released in April 2014 at Bandcamp.
Kreb: guitar, drums, vocals
The band Frakasi was formed in early 2010 in Ivanovo, Russia, by Vladimir, also known as Jan Ali Sin, when he and his friends began rehearsing and recording domestic demo songs. The initial intention was to play hardcore 50/50 in Russian and Esperanto. Stable membership only came in 2012: Vladimir - vocals, Bob - guitar, Mikhail - bass and Denis - drums. In the spring of 2012 the band started performing. During the year, about half a dozen DIY gigs took place at various underground venues in Ivanovo and Moscow - rock clubs, rehearsal bases and squats. During the last concert Frakasi played in one scene with popular punk band Purgen, after that concert Vladimir decided to disband his group.
In addition to playing in Frakasi, Vladimir recruited for Esperanto among Russian punk musicians and distributed homemade CDs with Esperantocore music. That's why he was inspired to record tracks in Esperanto with some other Russian punk bands - "SocialZero", "Rezistanco", "Skverna", and started collecting material for the new Esperanto compilation.
In the summer of 2021 Vladimir relaunched the band with a fresh membership by slightly changing the name of the group to Frakasu.
8- Jan Ali Sin kaj Ruĝa Espero
In the spring of 2021, Jan from the band Frakasu (then not reformed) met Alexei from the Petersburg (Russian) group Ruĝa Espero. Jan showed Alex his newly written songs. Alexei immediately offered to record something together, and chose an outline of Jan's song "Nevidebluloj".
Alex arranged the music and played all the instruments, and Jan sang.
Jan Ali Sin is also developing a solo punk electro project with his debut album « Punk’ ne mortis ».
9- JoMo kaj Liberecanoj
This band was formed in 1998 on the occasion of the recording of the album in honor of the anarchists in Spain in 1936 and the Ukrainian anarchists of the Machnovshchina. Pure anarcho-punk rock album in Esperanto.
At the end of September 2021, especially for the compilation Esperanto Subgrunde 2, JoMo rewrote and sang again in Esperanto "Al la barikadoj" and re-recorded the anarchist song with the help of Thierry Viguier who made the new musical arrangements, played guitar, and recorded and mixed in his own sound studio in Montauban.

10- Krio de Morto
Krio de Morto from Poznań, Poland (now Glasgow-Poznań).
Started as a simple anarchic punk band in 1986. Fast forward to hardcore and even crossover, as one member liked metal music too much.
Later the band started playing a modern version of punk music and added theatrical performances.
Its new current music mixes elements of industrial music, metal, electronics, and evolves into a style that the band describes as "death dance".

11- La Bleka Forfikulo kaj Siaj Orelboristoj
One fine day in the Autumn of 1987 (?) I met an indescribable creature in the charming village of Fontetoj, quite south of Esperantoland. In fact, that creature was much more human than my words might suggest. First, because only human beings with a true heart can speak Esperanto. And he spoke in Esperanto! A raw Esperanto, of course, an occasional wrong Esperanto, but Esperanto nonetheless!
He introduced himself to me as being La Forfikulo (the Fucker Off)! Because he wanted to fuck out of our world every bastard who pollutes it! Before being an Esperantist, he was a rocker. And with a sharp rock he thought to reach his goal.
In that blessed time, he had just met with other rock lovers and was looking for a place that could withstand loud rock music! That's exactly what I had at the time, a place where the then unknown French rock band Panique au Paddock was working on their own music. Wolfgang, their bandleader and regretted friend of mine, permitted La Forfikulo and his gang members to use the site.
Of course, it was necessary to define the scheduling, because obviously the two bands could not play at the same place. In fact, there was no real impossibility there and in the end it turned out to be much easier than we feared!
The real problem was that the new Esperanto rock band was much noisier than the French one. La Forfikulo really bored out our poor ears. When I pointed this out to him, instead of grumbling rudely or burning angrily, his face calmed down and lit up with a joyful smile that not even the mildest angels would be able to.
That left me speechless, speechless, completely speechless, my eyes growing like two round loose.
"You are Genius", he suddenly exclaimed, "Thank you very much!"
Suddenly I felt liquid, as if I had become the most edible, the most edible, and finally the most edible verses of four rondelles by Rabelais talking about mountains of custards! Maybe the fact that he did say "Genius", with a capital and no article, and not "a genius", as I would have expected, may have led to my stupidity.
Maybe, too, I saw myself, later, spending many hours explaining the subtle difference to him. "Genius" can be a kind of divine being or a fabulous creature, such as a genie coming out of an oil lamp when it is rubbed, as in the accounts of "A Thousand and One Nights". "Genius" is also the mental ability to invent extraordinary creations. While "a genius" is only the guy who is capable of that Genius!
Just as suddenly understanding my misunderstanding, he explained: "You're a genius! You've just figured out the right name for our band!"
A time ... A time when not even the flies buzzed, a time during which even the quietest passing angels were completely silent and did not pass at all ... A great time after which I finally understood, feeling like flying on a pink cloud, that he really thought me a divine being, a being like his good genius genius, creating only for him his dearest desire!
"So we're going to be called La Bleka Forfikulo kaj siaj Orelboristoj.'
I will not tell you the tumultuous roaring noise that then exploded from the throats of the so-called Orelboristoj! The noise coming out of their musical instruments, however, was much more bearable. And only then did I stop flying, only then did I fall back to the ground ...
Unfortunately, I never knew where they came from or where they went off too. Maybe they went back to the past?
Maybe one fine Autumn day I'll hear them knock on my door?
12- Manifesto Jukebox
Manifesto Jukebox was a Finnish punk rock band that was active between 1998 and 2008. Their raw but melodic guitar-dominant sound and social commentary lyrics quickly caught the interest of the world-wide grassroots punk scene.
In the year 2000 the band released their debut album "Desire", which became a classic in the genre. During those studio sessions, the band also recorded an Esperanto version of the album's latest song: "I just smile when your plan falls apart".
After the release of the English-language album, Manifesto Jukebox toured extensively around Europe. Their next album, "Remedy", was released by the Los Angeles-based Better Youth Organization in 2002.
Tours followed in Japan, the United States, and Europe. Having achieved more or less everything on the self-production scene, the band became less active.

The band consisted of three musicians - Elvis, Szcsur and Lukas.

At first it was all chaotic noisecore with textless screams, but quickly it evolved into a raw grindcore with songs in various languages - German, Czech, Estonian, Swahili, English and Esperanto - because all the people were interested in languages and cultures; two of the members were Esperantists - Vladimir and Max.
Penis Canina broke up in 2014. During their activity the band released a number of noisecore splits and performed with Sete Star Sept (Japan), Bestial Vomit (Italy), I Know (Belarus), Kroveled, Pissdeads, and others.

Platano (a former member of La Pafklik) partnered with Sparky Riot to record a ska-punk dub version of "Baldaŭ" for Esperanto Subgrunde 2.
Triboulet (a former member of Skawar) joined the project and brought additional music arrangements that punkized the song, and he masterfully remixed the whole thing…
«Baldaŭ», or how to have hope when the world seems to have no more.
Internationalists, Sparky Riot and Platano evoke battles around the world and the ability of peoples to open barriers of possibility. "Soon we will dance on the graves in the cemetery of the old world."
