In 2008 they announced that she would replace Elin Anita Omholt who left “Ancestral Legacy” due to health issues. In the year 2009 she moved to Norway. In 2010- 2011 Ancestral Legacy went on tour twice and got to play in France, Germany and The Netherlands. In 2012 the band started the recording of their forthcoming album that will include, for the first time, Isadora as their singer. Planned to be released during autumn.
“Ixquic” is the name of our song where in the intro, Isadora Cortina’s voice represents a character of the ancient Mayan literature. Her beautiful, subtle voice and her Central-American origin, makes of this song a very special participation for us, specially when for Fabulae Dramatis, to portray the role on its deepest expression it’s a matter of believing and living the drama.
Listen to “Ixquic“.

We are very enthusiast to about the last voice recording sessions. Fabulae Dramatis is having interesting invited voices and our main ones are getting stronger and subtle at the same time. The experimentation and our commitment are giving definitely the last touch and character to the music. The project is developing a characteristic sound.
VenenuM is finally taking form… since this personal project was founded in 2004 it has been very difficult to develop it, but maybe it was better that way, because now I have another perspective about music, musicians and about waiting and time. Time makes everything grow, no matter if something takes a bit of time, in the end what matters is to do it right.
The original tracks are “Whine”, “Quaerens Quem Devoret” and “Kein Schmerz”. The first two are compositions from Horus, band in which I sang and wrote the lyrics in 2003. I never had the opportunity to record them myself because I decided to leave the band. “Kein Schmerz” is original from VenenuM, composed in 2004.
For this musical process I counted with the support of Andrés Silva and Juan Robles (Dark Angeluz), keyboard player and drummer who I already knew from Spiritual Ashes, Ruben Restrepo’s personal project in which I sang and composed the lyrics. From the beginning I was sure that the way Silva and Robles compose and execute their instruments was going to be perfect for VenenuM.

Daniel Díaz Ordoñez recorded the acoustic and electric guitars.
Who I met from the dutch lessons here in Antwerp, and it was very funny and interesting to find in this country a fellow countryman that shares this passion for music.
