2010, Berro Guetto Música

Berrogüetto approaches science to bring us closer to their universe and philosophy. They invite us to stop and look up.

"Since the first drop of intelligence shone in humanity, our species did never stop wondering about the magnificent vision of space and, civilisation after civilisation, it never stopped generating myths, legends, cosmogonies, that made poetry out of the movement of heavenly bodies and their existence. However, each step science takes, each new discovery, both outdates old inconsistent beliefs and accentuates, rather that decreases, that creative thirst, that need to transmute emotion into new melodies." Quico Comesaña.

Kosmogonías (Kosmogonies) takes us to the quintessential starting point, to the Big-Bang, to victory of the matter over the anti-matter, to the initial berro / shout of the Universe that reaches us with its radiation. Kosmogonías is a reflection between the Humanity and the Universe, a call full of optimism for a fairer system. Berrogüetto stops and highlights all those collective and individual wills that with its gestures and attitudes works to improve their surroundings.

Composed of eleven songs, keeps Berrogüetto's personal style, clearly-defined since its early stages. Innovative since their first work, this fifth record is a compilation of organic sounds, a delicate work where the band gives expression to its soul through their special concept of music 

In Kosmogonías the public will find two important novelties: a new voice and a new sound. The incorporation of Xabier Díaz as singer signifies Berrogüetto’s commitment to a solo male voice, a very unusual fact among Galician bands. The band also integrates the nyckelharpa, a traditional Swedish stringed instrument, similar to a hurdy-gurdy. The luthier was Quim Farinha, the violinist of the group.

It is necessary to stress and thank the contribution of the writers Rosa Aneiros and Manuel Rivas, who allowed the use of his poem "Alalá" (A desaparición da neve, 2009) as lyrics for the song “Alalá da noite”.

Caneta de poeta [4:28]

Music Xabier Díaz / Guillerme Fernández Lyrics Xabier Díaz
Defecto de quen soña
caneta de poeta,
navega polo mundo
cun berro na maleta.

Versos sen hemisferio
orbitan na fin do grande misterio
teima de navegante
onírica lei, planeta distante

Canetas na batalla
mil versos na gabeta
quebrando na muralla
os soños do poeta

Versos sen hemisferio ...

Soños imperfectos
habitantes das quimeras
soños imperfectos
vidas incompletas
procurando novos días
vidas incompletas.
