Carmela Ramirez and Gabriel Chakarji get together in a creative period of their lives, where they decide to undertake a project based on their commitment to the Venezuelan and Latin American music. His constant search for new musical horizons led them to compose music thinking on the traditions of their culture approached in a contemporary way which quickly made up the personality and the sound of this duo.
After successful performances in his hometown Caracas, producer Germán Landaeta offers them the idea of ​​recording an album. Combining his expertise and technical excellence with the passion and creativity of the young duo it was finished in just one day of recording. That’s how “Life “was” born.

Recorded live entirely in Chacao Cultural Center Theater, “Life” presents 12 compositions by Carmela and Gabriel inspired in their direct influences, traditional Venezuelan music, Latin American folk and Jazz. The album also features a peculiar drum/percussion sound created by two percussionists Yilmer Vivas and Orestes Gomez that blends ingeniously with the voice and piano. It also features special guests Rafael Greco and Andres Barrios, famous venezuelan composers and instrumentalists.

“Vida” presents a picture of a unique moment where art, creativity and sincerity were the only rule.
