Ivi Porà’s name is born
from the word “Yvy pòra”
which means “human”
in the dialect of the
Ivi pora´s artist career
developed behind scenes,
colaborating and writing
with and for other artists
often folk music.
He was born and raised
in Costa Rica and
developed himself as a
private event show
performing in different
languages like english,
His first music production
as Ivi Porà was released
in winter 2018, consisting
of 3 song EP, each one
describing and narrating
a futuristic world
specifically in 2050
where humans are being
by technology and
His voice, lyrics,
have a kind of nostalgic
and melancholic air.
Nevertheless, he assures
there is also very much
hope in he´s compositions.
The tribe of Mountain Lions is a rebel movement
that resides hidden in the most arid mountains
around the world.
It is a strong, cinematic song which represents
the hymn of the movement. Poetically written
in collaboration with a good friend of Ivi’s,
David González, the song talks about not giving in,
surviving, breaking down the oppression
of technology in human freedom, and bien sûre,
The arrangements and mixture of tribal
instruments and chants paint the song with
human rawness. Nevertheless, the presence
of certain synths give a sense
of a futuristic environment.
figé pour toujours:
As the lyrics call it, describes the people that live
in a futuristic world where the dehumanization
is present in almost every level.
Research has stated that developing technologies
will question as to when can a human stop
being human, and where does consciousness
stands when it is uploaded to a machine.
In a future where people immerse themselves
into machines and subsist in a virtual reality world,
Ivi Porà describes the effects of these decisions
in the hope that humanity doesn't disappear
as we know it.
In a future where religion has died and people have
lost faith and belief for god, artificial intelligence
becomes a kind of worshiped technology where
humans devote their serenity.
Through a monologue,"Sometimes" presents
the feeling of desperation, where
“sometime's you still feel there is a god listening
and sometimes you don´t."
Accurately, as the song phrases
“I don´t know when I’m gonna be leaving you”,
it points to new generations and their struggle
in questioning what to believe in, giving up on
faith as we know it and unconsciously developing
a new kind of faith in technology advancement.
