Charan 04:22
The white sun rode high up in the heavens, And the floating clouds formed a lofty peak; The priest who saw them asked if there was a temple there, And the crane lamented the fact that no pines were visible; But the lightnings from the cloud were the flashings of the woodman’s axe, And the muffled thunders were the bell calls of the holy temple. Will any say that the hills do not move? On the sunset breezes they sailed away.
Jade 04:51
En un abanico de plumas Camino hacia ti en un trono Los dioses nos separaron, prohibieron nuestro amor. Crucé el puente entre tu y yo Sobre el cielo azul Las estrellas nos miraron Su luz encendió nuestro amor Te uniste a mi corazon De sol a sol pude ver en tus ojos una belleza radiante No me sueltes mi dulce flor No me sueltes, siento tu calor Los dioses juzgaron el trono de nuestro amor.

Kaelo 03:07
Vir aqui tão longe e ver Teu rosto refletir no meu E flutuar tão denso e só Poder te ver partir A sua mão acariciar Um rosto que não meu Oh Kaelo Oh Kaelo Te tenho em mim assim Oh Kaelo Oh Kaelo Te tenho em mim, aqui De mãos dadas recostar Meus olhos pra não ver Enquanto o tempo passa só Mergulho no conter Oh Kaelo Oh Kaelo Por ti eu vim, aqui Oh Kaelo Oh Kaelo Por mim fuji assim Sei de um lugar, enfim assim Parece lar dentro de mim Onde o amar repensa o fim


Cha-Ran by bassist/composer Robert Lee is a continuation of an exploration of artistic identity. An identity that is founded in the emotional provocation of jazz and improvised music but pursues the exploration and implementation of new musical genres into one cohesive creative theatre.

The album is composed of all original compositions inspired by Korean folk stories, spanning various fantasy and romantic narratives. The main goal of this music is to evoke the same emotion that is perceived from the narrative storytelling of Studio Ghibli films (i.e. Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle).

Music has the power to evoke visual imagery through auditory stimulation. Each of these compositions has this profound effect on the listener and transports them to an emotional realm outside of their presuppositions.
