March 3, 2010, Carlos Joe Costa

Poet and musician Carlos Joe Costa has this to say about his work and his latest project:
Voice of My Soul is a a collection of poems, stories and songs resulting from a deep spiritual journey twenty five years ago. As I continued on this path, I felt a need to search for a profound purpose in life.  A need to express myself from my inner voice where words could be spoken only from my hear and soul.  In 1996 I was compelled to write again, but this time I felt I had something to say.
These poems brought me closer to my origins and my cultural heritage.  As I wrote, I began to discover the rich life that I have been living surrounded by teachers, messengers and a wonderful family upbringing.
This project has been therapeutic for me in many ways.  I lost my parents in 1998.  I lost my brother four years later.  I found that writing eased the pain as i focused on the fond memories of them.  It also compelled me to explore other family members of the past and present. 

I believe it is important to also write about the heroes who became my teachers, and friend who made a differencce in my life. The songs were written as a celebration and the stories are dedicated to some wonderful human beings.
