Official release on November 5 at Vinilkosmo of the digital album Nenifar' by Gijom' Armide.
It is also the first album released under the (Creative Commons) license on the Vinilkosmo label, thus opening the way for new projects under these types of licenses.
Gijom 'Armide presented his first concert in the world of Esperanto in 2009 during the FESTO festival in Germany. This was the beginning of a long series of concerts with the well-known supporters of EUROKKA and Vinilkosmo, Varsovia Vento, IJF (Italian Esperanto Youth), and others.
In 2011, Gijom' launched a Crowdfunding campaign to record the album Nenifar' and he went into studio in 2012 ... then Gijom' released the self-produced album in 2015.
Nenifar' deals with social issues such as feminism ("La plej granda"), polyamory ("Amu rin"), nudity ("Nuda"), and more personal issues such as yearning for someone missing ("Mankas vi"), romantic relationships ("Amo kaj Asfalto", "La postrompiĝa temp' ", "Eĉ se ne amen"…), and the terrible feeling we have all had when a friend looses his beautiful curls ("Viaj bukloj")!!

News of the album project ESPERO

The album project we announced in Vinilkosmo's December 2017 newsletter with a special musical arrangement of "La Espero", resurfaced with a new musical team, and we are very happy about it.
Enriched by the arrangements made by Jean-Claude ROGER, author and composer, the Esperanto hymn will be performed by a philharmonic orchestra (15 musicians) directed by Philippe ALLEGRINI. It will be sung by Vanessa PONT, professional singer from the Conservatoire de Nice. Recognized in the world of opera, she is also distinguished in the world of song that she particularly likes.
In addition to the reorchestrated version of "La Espero", the album will include a dozen songs translated and adapted in Esperanto, including an original Esperanto song by the author Miguel Gutiérrez.
For the realization of this project, which will be coproduced and realized in collaboration with the Fédération Espéranto-Provence, with the support of Esperanto-France and Vinilkosmo, which will publish and distribute the album, a subscription by crowdfunding has just been launched on KissKissBankBank.
You can register on the project site to support it:

(click on the picture to join) Important Warning
The musical activities of VINILKOSMO are in danger!!!
Unfortunately, we have found an important decline in the interest in the music of our label in the year 2018 with serious consequences, i.e. very few disk sales, but also very few download sales. In parallel, the listening of streaming broadcasts has grown, but it is very regrettable that it does not pay enough to keep our label up and bars all possible perspectives. Because of this, the ABONKLUBO was created, which we saw as an alternative in support of the fair trade streaming channel Divercities Music, to continue music production and publishing. But very unfortunately after three years of existence, we must note that the ABONKLUBO is also failing. Visibly, people prefer to continue listening to music for free on other sites such as Deezer, YouTube, or Spotify.
Vinilkosmo can continue to hold on for one more year, but if the situation is not reversed in 2019 and the users of ABONLUBO and Divercity Music do not increase, Vinilkosmo will have to close. The consequences of closing Vinilkosmo are: - The immediate disappearance of the Vinilkosmo catalog on the network: our own Esperanto music platform, but also in Divercities Music and in all other music platforms where our catalog is now available. This means that in Deezer, Youtube, Spotify, etc. you will no longer be able to listen to music from the VINILKOSMO catalog. - The possibility of regular music production in esperanto, the release of new albums, or the re-edition of old albums, will disappear.
How to avoid closing Vinilkosmo? It must be understood that it is not possible to use and listen to Esperanto music without supporting it more actively ane contributing to its survival.
So, in practice, the only alternative to avoid closing VINILKOSMO is that all people who want to continue listening to Esperanto music from the Vinilkosmo catalog, join the ABONKLUBO, even if they do not use the fair streaming platform Divercites Music, with the goal of multiplying the number of subscribers.
Without this, in 2020 Vinilkosmo's music catalog will completely disappear from the online landscape.
Thanks for your attention and your support!
The entire Vinilkosmo team
