World jazz - Latin Jazz - Bossa Jazz
Vojaĝo - Toulouse - Occitania - France
Vojaĝo in Esperanto is pronounced "vo-YA-jo". It is the story of friendship among six musicians from Toulouse, the Pink City in Occitania. United by a common passion for Latin music and jazz, these "travelers from the South" forge compositions with the spontaneity, exaltation, and warmth of the South. The band Vojaĝo is also characterized by the desire to put art at the service of right causes, such as the respect of the environment and friendship between human beings thanks to Esperanto.
What attracts us with the first accents of their repertoire is the energy and enthusiasm of a style well-rhythmed to communicative joy. Sometimes nonchalant and sensual, sometimes joyful and jubilant, the music distilled by Vojaĝo reveals the musicians' joy of life, happy to share their passion.
One of the characteristics of Vojaĝo is the taste for the melodies made "a la mano" on real instruments that vibrate, resonate, breathe, and give their soul to music. To work the sound dough into chiselled, lovingly shaped music, in the manner of the most seasoned craftsmen.
On syncopated rhythms, taking its roots from Choro, Bossa Nova, Samba, Salsa, or the Blues, Vojaĝo's style has strongly oriented accents from the South, from Brazil, the Caribbean, Italy, Argentina, or Louisiana, that embark you on a trip to the other end of the Earth, in the suburbs of Rio, São Paulo, or Belem, Cuba, Buenos Aires, Naples, or Toulouse. A nonchalant journey in a music full of sunshine, like a hymn to life, which incites friendship between "remakers of the world".
Vojaĝo performed in concert for the first time in front of an Esperanto audience during the 100th World Congress of Esperanto at the Palais des Congrès in Lille in July 2015.
