Enamiĝo Reciprokataj stands for “Reciprocal Love” in Esperanto, referring to Anjou’s inner dialogue with her pieces and her bandmates, creativity and improvisation, and her relationship with the music and love. Featuring nine original compositions honoring the piano trios of Ahmad Jamal, Oscar Peterson, McCoy Tyner and Red Garland, plus an electronic mix of Starlight, titled “Reciproka Elektra,” blending Anjou’s two working trios on the record. An album reflecting originality and the world’s universal languages - music, love, and Esperanto.
