Akeliko's music includes an instrumental concept album consisting of 14 tracks lasting a total of 1h. The Music tells the story in a stand-alone fashion, and it is meant to be listened to with closed eyes after reading each of the book chapters, where you can see references to each part of the music.
This music includes the recordings of real choirs, exotic percussions and the main protagonist of this psychedelic orchestra: the saxophone.
This music has been recorded over the period of 4 years in various studios including the iconic Abbey Road Studios where some choir performances were recorded.
There is more than 30 musicians and singers involved int his musical performance, all under the supervision of Nacho Stax, the composer of this fantasy concept Album.
It is meant to be experience fully and it has two versions. The fully narrated, and the stand-alone.
Akeliko's live show is a mixture between live theatre, orchestra, narrating and storytelling. The only pieces that can be seen now are similar artforms that are the closest to what Akeliko will be in the future.
The world as we know it has perished. Hundreds of years after a big catastrophe, the reminiscences of ancient advanced societies have been taken over by the thick jungles and wildlife of the world.
A series of tribes from an unknown land has prospered in the underworld. Unlike their ancestors, they’ve learned to respect nature and coexist with it. For centuries, this small tribe has lived without any advancement in technology and is completely forbidden to use it or create it.
In this context, the shaman's chief Asiko envisions the end of the world in his dream. A blue giant star swallows the Earth and wipes out every life form on the planet.
As he awakes, he is been told that to save Earth he must send his son to the past, and redeem an ancient technology capable of changing the fate of the stars.
