Terra

It has been a trip to Sardinia to spark Klaus’ desire to create a song about our planet. During that Audi-sponsored experience in Caprera, Klaus was able to see how even the world’s most beautiful seas are plagued by the problem of microplastic pollution.

From that moment on, the artist tried to find a way to use music to highlight this problem and show how human waste can be transformed into something new and useful. Hence the idea of using a handmade bottle full of microplastics collected on the beaches as an instrument for the song.

Klaus’ idea, to give even more prominence to the problem of pollution, was then to use one of the most uncontami- nated places on the planet as a reference for the record: Africa.

This is also evident in the song’s sound, which takes up the typical instruments of African culture. Indeed, together with the Wanderlust team, a project for which he is spokesperson and whose one of the main themes is the safeguard of the planet, the artist wanted to extend the problem of pollution on a global scale.

Terra (&lez Interpretation) A week after “Terra” release, on the 29th of October the Italian artist &lez will deliver his interpretation of the original record. The remix, already played on several occasions by Black Coffee, gives the public a new interpretation of the song, respecting and empowering the tribute given by Klaus to African culture.
