La Pordo (The Door) was originally released on the album Revolucio en pajleraro (Revolution in a Haystack).
An urgent call for social transformation, it immediately became one of Ale Kosabela’s most listened to songs. Its message is more and more timely: we need to wake up and work together to improve the living conditions of all beings, and to protect our common home. As Ale says, “There’s a small distance between dreaming and awakening”, but if we are to actively participate in a new culture of cooperation and brotherhood, we must travel that small distance and awaken. Our thoughts and emotions matter, our actions are essential and urgent.
The main feature of the Esperanto community is its internationality. Because of this, this single is of particular interest to our community. This is an international collaboration in the style of “Playing for Change”. La Pordo, a song originally written in Esperanto by Alejandro Cossavella, is presented here by the voices of a multinational team. The sound track was coordinated, mixed, and mastered in Toulouse, France, and the video footage was edited by Rogener Pavinski in Brazil. This song is accompanied by its karaoke so you can sing at home or make new versions. We hope you like the result and that it will also be an inspiration for new projects like it.
Fraternal cooperation in a neutral language... isn’t that what we dreamed of when we learned about the ideals of Esperanto? Isn’t that what we imagine for the future?
By listening to La Pordo, you will enter this atmosphere... take advantage of it.
