Harouna Samake & Carolina Vallejo, Bamako, Mali 2018

ART & MUSIC 

As beloved and missed Mr. Andy Palacio stated in his winner speech at Womex in 2007,  I too believe in music with a higher purpose that goes beyond simple entertainment. That of transmitting a culture or ideas, of preserving values of traditions, renewing them in personal ways, being a way of expressing all parts of humans history, present situation and visions.  Music is a bearer of messages and transmits feelings of inclusion, awareness, consciousness, protest and love. And music is, as all artistic behaviour, a way to express freedom.

CAROLINA VALLEJO RELIQVIUM

In her Awarded book Reliqvium, Carolina Vallejo describes her thoughts on creation in an ever challenging world full of the contradictions between evil and good.

Fabulous, amazing, fascinating and enchanting.  Horrifying, groundbreaking and grotesque.  The most cutting-edge and innovative Danish jewellery artist Carolina Vallejo received with this book the Danish Crafts Book Prize.  The book is an aesthetic journey that takes readers through the 7 sins of death to the world of virtues, where Mikkel Heriba's photograph complemented by Morten Agergaard's understated arrangement, all in close production and styling by the author, with an immediate ease understands to serve the texts of this political, spiritual and cultural historical manifesto, in both Danish, English, Spanish and Greek.Just as the book's reproductions, print, paper and binding, right up to the silver cut in the front of the book are of the highest quality, just as competent are the book's texts written by Carolina Vallejo, Ramón Puig Cuyas, Henrik Most and accurately and sensitively translated by W. Glyn Jones and Per Aage Brandt.
