    The Biopholio™ is a two-sided, 20-panel origami-inspired medium, bursting with vibrant artwork and liner notes; each one made entirely out of FSC-certified, robust paper, hand-folded and printed using plant-based inks. There is no Compact Disk (CD) or plastic in this product.

    Found inside each Biopholio™ is a unique code for the listener to digitally download the music in hers/his preferred format (high CD-quality, uncompressed WAV files, et cetera...)

    This innovative design caters to the environmentally-conscious listener, who is aware of the harmful effects of plastic in the environment, yet feels that a digital download is just not enough. With your purchase, you are supporting the future of this music and the artists who create it with the added bonus of receiving a tangible piece of original album artwork that you can proudly cherish for years to come.

    Lara Bello's SIKAME Biopholio™ is the first one of it's kind... ever.... anywhere! Make sure to get your copy!

A song that talks about the forced displacements in the world because of war, beliefs, or any other kind of way to make people leave their homeland, always, of course, leaving seeds behind, so the soil will always remember them.


Poquito a poco yo planto mi semilla
Que nacerá en este desierto
Mostrándome una nueva vida

Poquito a poco
Mi semilla se crece
Y se agarra a la tierra
Desprendiendo ramas verdes.

Se escucha una voz
Del viento al cruzar
Sobre la arena la desnuda
Llegando hasta el mar.
Se escucha una voz del viento al cruzar..

Quedan semillas latentes en la arena
Por tantos años se durmieron
Despiertan con la lluvia nueva

En el silencio nocturno del desierto
Palpitando la tierra
Nacen vidas hacia el cielo…

Kalilan kalilan azrahu bizratan
Li tambutu fi hazihi sahra
Li ta’arida li hayatan yadida
