Chafa – Aurora (Spotify)

“Listen to this authentic classical piano work from a very capable artist. Gentle melody and calm mood that is immediately transfered to you from the very begining. "Aurora" is so simple and catchy that cannot leave us unaffected. Real classic beauty.”

Chafa – Abyss (Spotify)

“Melodic, momentary creation with spiritual and atmospheric colors, bursting with your soul. To describe the beauty of the composition -Abyss- are not enough any words. It is worth to dive into it but is so deeep that return will not be easy.”

“Мелодичное, сиюминутное творение в душевных и атмосферных тонах, распирающее вашу душу. Чтобы описать всю красоту композиции -Abyss-, не хватит никаких слов. Стоит погрузиться в неё и вернуться будет совсем не просто. ”

-Nagamag.com

Abyss is a piano & strings piece which I wrote after going through a very difficult phase in my life. It is a minimalistic, yet energetic piece of music which builds into a crescendo near the end of the song. The melodic swells and buildup are meant to capture the feeling of being lost - much like being stranded in an Abyss - and eventually finding your way back.

Chafa Interview on Nagamag

Chafa

.


Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Chafa:
Piano-led, cinematic, & ambient contemporary classical music.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Chafa:
I began teaching myself piano when I was twelve years old, but I always loved music. Growing up in the Bay Area (California), I was introduced to several different cultures and styles of music.
It wasn't long before I felt the need to express my own thoughts and feelings through art, and piano was the instrument I felt the most connected to.

Before the pandemic, I would perform locally, but after spending time recording and releasing my music during this last year, I have my eyes set on creating music for film and potentially collaborating with other composers and orchestras.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Chafa:
Seeing performers on the street as a kid really inspired me. Watching their music move people to dance, smile, laugh, or cry was inspiring. I wouldn't learn an instrument for several more years, but my love for music continued to grow until I felt the urge one day to sit down and play some of the songs I loved so much.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Chafa:
Beirut "Elephant Gun"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Chafa:
Max Richter "Written on the Sky"

Chafa – Solitude (Spotify)

“This work of -Chafa- combines elements of neo-classical and instrumental postminimalism. His single -Solitude- reveals to the audience a whole ocean of emotions, because of his cool and undisturbed endless expansion. Save the heat in the shower, and listen -Solitude- to calm down.”

“Работы композитора -Chafa- сочетают в себе элементы инструментальной неоклассики и постминимализма. Сингл -Solitude- раскрывает перед слушателями целый океан эмоций, ведь его холодные, бесконечные просторы так одиноки и безмятежны. Сохрани тепло в душе, послушай -Solitude- и успокойся.”

-Nagamag.com

Artist share with us few words behind his inspiration of this beautiful track:

"...I began writing 'Solitude' at the beginning of our lockdown state - each phase of the song represents a new obstacle to overcome. During the final buildup, we see the light at the end of the tunnel. This piece took several months to write - it echoes the isolation, despair, and hope we have been experiencing lately..."
