Javier Duhart

In a world dominated by the commercialization of the arts, where music has become a consumer product oriented towards the masses, a new alternative appears, where honesty, talent, creativity and the conveyed message once again acquire the importance they deserve. This option is Faro, a production company founded in 1993 in Santiago, Chile, by Javier Duhart, a musician and architecture student at the time, who while seeking the way to take advantage of his multidisciplinary interests, discovered that they could be used to promote initiatives world-wide, whose message had new and refreshing content, as flashes of light in the darkness, so as to contribute towards the advancement of society.

Surrounded by musician friends bursting with original creations, it didn't take long to find material to record. Thus, under limited technical conditions and lots of effort, work began on the first albums, recorded on analog tapes and released on cassette. In time the activity grew and developed, and now they are recorded digitally and released on compact disc. The artist and production company, united in consultation and harmony, share the work behind each record, striving to find the best way to record and portray each creation.

Making the most of his interests in the fields of sound engineering, record production, musical composition and performance, graphic design and audiovisual communication, Javier Duhart assumes various roles in making each record, from the first guidelines to the final product. His source of inspiration comes from his religion, the Bahá'í Faith, whose teachings proclaim the unity of mankind, where "the Earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens". Consequently, each one of Faro's products express, in some way, values and principles that support this concept.

At present, Faro's catalogue comprises seven CDs. Five of them are currently available and the remaining two are to be reissued soon. Also, there are three new albums in the making and plans for five more, plus five video documentaries on DVD.
