Lyrics by Manca Miro: I walked along these concrete shores before and looked into the midnight sky and though I always knew there must be more its depth had never drawn my eye. Tonight it pulls me as though it wants to sweep me to outer space from where I won’t return. My mind draws open to swallow the stars and all their light. Now I can feel how small I had been with my supernova heart. I thought I knew who I had been before. I thought I knew where I had stood. Yet now I have discovered something more that in me there is so much room. That thoughts - untethered - falling through space like feathers could fill me up and fly me home again.

Lyrics by Sebastian Cruz: ¿En donde estoy? i, e, o, e Sigue el sonido de mi voz Si no me vez i, e, o, e Sigue escuchándome Del viento viene la brisa De la brisa vendaval De vendaval huracán vuelve a soplar De viento toda palabra De viento toda canción De viento también toda declaración Y cada canción es como un mandala Deja una estela sorda detrás Y no se ve más Y el viento pasa borrando el camino Nuevo de arena para jamás Voltear a mirar Vuela, vuela, vuela y no se reposa Vuela, vuela, vuela sin parar Este mundo es de sonido De ruido sin razón Descubre este murmullo entre los dos Llora una sirena, suena una alarma Canta un tambor y uno que nació Estrena su voz Vuela, vuela, vuela y no se reposa Vuela, vuela, vuela sin parar (x2) ¿En donde estoy? i, e, o, e Sigue el sonido de mi voz Si no me vez i, e, o, e Sigue escuchándome Vuela, vuela, vuela y no se reposa Vuela, vuela, vuela sin parar Busca mi voz Entre el sonido Entre los ruidos Búscame entre los ruidos Búscame entre los ruidos Encuéntrame entre los ruidos Encuéntrame entre los ruidos English translation to “Canción Mandala” Where am I? i-e-o-e Follow the sound of my voice… If you can’t see me… i-e-o-e Keep on listening to me. From the wind comes the breeze, from the breeze the gale, from the gale the hurricane that blows again. Of wind every word, Of wind every song, Of wind what I claim. And each song as a mandala leaving a silent trail behind soon lost for your eyes. And the wind just blows carelessly erasing the new road you wrote in the sand to never look back. Fly, fly, fly … to never rest, Fly, fly, fly … to never stop this world made of sound of meaningless noise. Find this whisper between us. The mermaid cries, an alarm rings, a drum that sings and the newborn that tries his voice for the first time. Fly, fly, fly … to never rest, Fly, fly, fly … to never stop. Where am I? i-e-o-e Follow the sound of my voice… If you can’t see me… i-e-o-e Keep on listening to me. Fly, fly, fly … to never rest, Fly, fly, fly … to never stop. Look for my voice, into the sound, into the noise. Look for me into the noise, look for me into the noise, find me into the noise, find me into the noise.

Lyrics by Manca Miro: She sleeps, alone. Her breath is drawn like waves that roll over sand, somewhere she can’t go. And you wish you were not far away, somewhere she can’t know you would want her to know. And if you could, you’d say, you’d give your all, and say it each day. If only so, at last, she’d know. She wakes, alone, with the falling snow, and wonders who her day is waiting for. Under the snow, out of sight, there is life soon to bloom. Under her breath, on the edge of her mind there is more. Over the hill, when she walks out of here there is room.

about

Azul Infinito, which features Ryan Keberle’s signature band, Catharsis, includes the vocals of Chilean singer Camila Meza, alongside a frontline of Keberle and GRAMMY-nominated trumpeter Mike Rodriguez, Peruvian-born bassist Jorge Roeder and drummer Eric Doob, creates a continuity of sound and aesthetic that could only have resulted from constant playing (often monthly around New York) for the past four years. From this continuity, they breathe as one and express a band aesthetic.

For Keberle, American music’s emotional power, which stems from the blues, is reflected in similarly cathartic afrocentric musical elements found in South American music. Fittingly, Jorge Luis Borges, the noted Argentine writer, called the cathartic act of experiencing art an “evento estético” or “aesthetic event.” As on past records, Keberle’s goal is to allow the listener to feel something through his thoughtful compositions and songs. “I hope this record conveys the influence that South American music has played in my life, and allows listeners to experience their own aesthetic event,” says Keberle. “Each original song on this record is either dedicated to, or directly influenced by, a specific South American composer with whom I’ve had the pleasure to play.”
