2012 release.

Tra Parole e Silenzio (Between Words and Silence) is based on the lyrical, poignant, joyful and soul searching Italian poetry by Edoardo Di Giovanni about the universality of love, loss, separation and the nature of the soul. The musical settings of the poems, which range from hauntingly beautiful choral songs to fiery instrumental textures, are written by Llew Kiek, Paul Cutlan, Andrew Robson, Mara Kiek and Steve Elphick, who all play on the recently released CD along with Sandy Evans and Naomi Vaughan.

Like its predecessor "Sezoni" (Seasons), the suite is woven with duets and solos by the distinctive sound of Mara Kiek and Silvia Entcheva with the a cappella voices of Sydney’s Bulgarian-style women's choir, Martenitsa, one of the most innovative choirs in Australia. The Mara! band's contribution takes us on a sonic feast of whirlwind solos, close harmonies, moody instrumentals and powerful rhythmic passages.

'Tra Parole E Silenzio' was inspired by Edoardo’s son Daniele, sound engineer for the Mara! band. Edoardo wrote and published the poems in the 1950s and 60s, and the idea of setting them to music was irresistible to the Mara! musicians. 'Tra Parole E Silenzio' offers a sea-breeze straight from the Mediterranean.
