At IKIGAI, the Enric Carreras wants to take the path of the CD PRESAGIS. It is, therefore, an effective work, full and full of contrasting registers, with melodies of great lyricism and complex and meticulous arrangements.
IKIGAI moves between the new age, contemporary music, symphony and electronica, and in which ethnic touches are more present than ever: there are themes of Celtic, Arab, Mediterranean and even Japanese airs. And the term ikigai comes from this Asian country. Ikigai is our reason for being in this world, what makes us wake up every day with a smile. The activities that make us happiest often coincide with our most genuine contribution to the world. Everyone has their ikigai, although sometimes we haven’t discovered it. Enric’s ikigai is Music and the record is a tribute to his author.
The album features the luxury participation of Josep Traver (guitarist of Andrea Motis) and Aleix Puig (violinist of the Terrassa 48 Chamber Orchestra and the Brossa Quartet).
