Raighes, which means “roots” in Sardinian language, is a concept album that explores the theme of roots and the importance of where we come from.
In Roberto Diana’s words, “Whether we search for them or not, our roots exist and they keep us standing, often we hardly notice. They are the only thing that we will never leave us, whatever route we take, they push as forward, far away, towards the unknown, searching for new places, new souls, new sensations, but they also tie us to where our journey began. No matter how long our journey will be, how many stops we will make, or how difficult the road we choose to travel on, a part of us will always be right there, where we come from and where it all began.”
Through the music on Raighes Vol 1, Roberto Diana wants to convey the idea that our roots are always with us and shape who we are, no matter where our journey takes us. It is a tribute to his own roots and a celebration of the culture and traditions that have influenced him.
