Blua horizonto is Kjara's debut album (Chiara Raggi) in the panorama of Esperanto music and culture.
These are ten songs in which Kjara mixes the singer-songwriter style with jazz and world music. Recorded between Italy and New York, this album boasts the collaboration of internationally renown musicians from distant musical and geographical worlds, from Brazil to New York, through the Italian singer-songwriter tradition.
Blua horizonto is an album written with our feet in the water, near the sea, an important element in Kjara's poetics, together with the theme of travel, in search of beauty inside and outside of us.
This album is a journey into human existence, and relates passages of life and feelings that inhabit the heart of man.
All the songs were translated/adapted by Renato Corsetti and Gianfranco Molle.
