Aloardi release night in VillaK – The Hague

event 25.11.15 flyer

ALOARDI RELEASE NIGHT OF SAJJRA – ‘THE SUN REMAINS THE SAME’ with special guests
EVENING PROGRAM (Facebook event link)
Sajjra (PE/NL)
Sajjra is the song project of Chrs Galarreta (guitar, effects, voice, sampler, and sequences). Peruvian contemporary non-musician and composer, very active in the Latin American underground scene since 1994 and in Europe since 2011, with his different bands and soloist projects, such as: Evamuss, Tica and DiosMeHaviolado. Sajjra’s sound has the atmosphere of the slow and heavy Andean processions, keeping the spirit of their traditional music ensembles. But Sajjra also expresses the industrial feelings, that gives his birth-town Lima. Through this mix of influences, Sajjra developed his style and keeps it shining, from his first album (2013) to the beating in ‘The Sun Remains The Same’. Listen here: https://sajjra.bandcamp.com/album/the-s-un-rem-ai-ns-t-he-s-am-e
Jacco (NL)
After years of being frontman of some infamous bands (gul night out, new age kids) Jacco Weener embarked on a solo career. He performs spiritual one-man shows using improvisation of the space and the audience. Next to that he is a theologian and creates shows about Dutch music history for the Worm in Rotterdam. Listen here: https://jacowe.bandcamp.com
Pelucho (EQ/FR)
Lucho Pelucho. Member of legendary Ecuadorian metal -progressive–experimental rock bands as Fundamental and Sal y Mileto. Also is in-famous as electroacoustic composer and computer musician in the South American noise scene. A full time geek. Programmer, Guitar Player, Copyright lawyer.

New Release > Sajjra – The Sun Remains The Same (2015)

Ṣ̵̶À͜J͞J̢̡R̵͏A – Th̴e͏ ̕S̴un҉ R̛em͢a҉in͏s̸ ͠T̢h͘e̶ S̀am͏e (2015)

Sajjra in The Hague by Simon

NEW RELEASE of Sajjra on 12 Inch vinyl (180 gram). Limited edition of 320 copies, signed by the artist. Golden cover in black cardboard, designed by Sajjra and silkscreened by Lillia Scheerder in Daglicht (Eindhoven, NL). Published through a collective effort of the three labels Fougere Musique (FR), Urbanoide Records (PE) and Aloardi (PE/NL). Listen and see samples of the vinyl in this link
The 4 tracks of this release go from apocalyptic noise-songs with drops of tropical rhythms to ethereal oceanic and industrial compositions. The last track ‘The Sound Remains The Same’ is an extreme trip into resonances and atmospheres of live processed guitar. Through the extreme use of an apparent monotony, Sajjra generates a continuous sound-space with a timeless effect. The physical quality of the sound will reach outside the loudspeakers, breaking down the turntable. The record is influenced by behaviors of the North Sea along the Dutch coast: an intense landscape of slow monotonous changes or constantly moving storms. Produced in The Hague (The Netherlands) in 2014, after long beach-walks. Some of the songs were already composed (but never recorded) in the beginning of the 90’s, with acoustic guitar and voice only.
Sajjra’s sound has the atmosphere of the slow and heavy Andean processions, keeping the spirit of their traditional music ensembles. But Sajjra also expresses the industrial feelings, that gives his birth-town Lima. Through this mix of influences, Sajjra developed his style and keeps it shining, from his first album (2013) to the beating in ‘The Sun Remains The Same’.
