The album features twenty-three groups from eleven countries.
The first extreme rock groups that started writing songs in Esperanto appeared in the late 1980s and early 1990s. At the same time, the Esperanto music label Vinilkosmo was founded in France. Since the 1990s there has been a small amount of underground musicians supporting the international language in Brazil, Poland, France, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, and in groups scattered throughout other countries.
In 2000, Vinilkosmo in co-production with the Brazilian label La Blua Papilio released the first volume of an international Esperanto compilation Esperanto Subgrunde.
In March 2022, the second volume of this significant double album is being released. The compilation will include recent songs specially recorded for this edition, and old rediscovered songs with restored sound. Groups of different countries and nationalities are united here not only by musical genres and language, but also by the ideals of Esperanto.
Esperanto is the planned neutral international language with a simple grammar that can be learned ten times faster than any natural language. It was created in 1887 to facilitate communication between people.
“Esperantokoro” is an unofficial term for all underground rock music with lyrics in Esperanto; it’s rock music against linguistic discrimination and inequality, against racism and fascism, against imperialism and cultural chauvinism, against sexism and social injustice, against war and the barriers between people.
We choose freedom, world peace, and communication between peoples without barriers!
The compilation supports the alternative and united educational project of “La Escuelita” set up by three teachers from the Franco-Peruvian Institute in Lima. It aims to carry out educational and academic support activities for children living in the slums located in the highlands of Lima not having access to virtual online courses since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
