Related with the lastest 2021 collaborations, we joined forces with Soul Mountain and Fanatic Guitars, with an unprecedented project that brings self-composed song recording to summits higher than 3000 metres, they will collect funds for the preservation of mountain areas through Kilian’s Foundation.
We are talking about Soul Mountain, a project that blends music and mountaineering together, two disciplines that at first sight may not seem related at all. This is the case for Jordi Mestre, who has always seen a deep connection between the two, creating his most personal project to date thanks to this idea.
Related with the collaboration, the search of Jordi Mestre of a way to unite these two passions is what brought this Lleida-based musician to create a project that would allow him to play and record his compositions on top of his favourite summits in the Pyrenees. Together with mountain guide Roger López de Haro and cameraman/video producer Jordi Rulló, they form a team that intends to create a series of videos and instrumental songs.
These creations are always carried out in accordance with the high mountain environment that surrounds the project, trying to raise awareness and emphasizing on nature preservation and culture as two of the basic, necessary pillars for a better future.
In their third recording, the team climbed atop Besiberri Nord starting their ascent from the Cavallers dam, in Vall de Boí. Up there, Jordi Mestre played a new composition entitled “The Change”. This latest filming has been done trying to underscore how high mountains are one of the main life sources, as well as the need for action in order to minimize the devastating effects of climate change. Here the third film. Enjoy it!
So through this last film, Fanatic Guitars and Soul Mountain join forces to raise funds for the Kilian Jornet Foundation 2022 projects. The funds will go to projects for the preservation of the mountains and their environment through the GivenGain platform. Here’s the link! If you want to take part, make a donation of at least €5 and take part in the draw for a fantastic guitar of Angelico guitars!
