Blot en ild (Merely a Fire)
The impetus to arrange a bouquet of new melodies, lyrics and musical pieces was at the heart of the vision to celebrate the trios ten-year anniversary of playing together in 2017. The music is all written exclusively by the ladies of Zenobia. The lyrics in Blot en Ild are parts of classic texts that have been combined with new melodies. In Kai Hoffmans 'Den danske sang er en ung blond pige'; and H.C. Andersen's 'I Danmark er jeg født' one will find a new approach that has the intent to invite listeners to contemplate the meaning behind the lyrics once again. There are also newly written verses by Benny Holst, and by Zenobia's author on previous productions, Martin Rauff-Nielsen, to be found on the record.

Trioen Zenobia har indtaget den danske musikscene med forførende og stemningsfyldte fortolkninger af den danske sangskat. Udgivelsen af CD'en er Zenobias fejring af trioens 10 års jubilæum i 2017. Musikken på CD'en er skrevet af trioen selv. Teksterne på 'Blot en ild' er dels klassiske tekster der har fået nye melodier: Kai Hoffmans 'Den danske sang er en ung blond pige' og H.C. Andersens 'I Danmark er jeg født' findes her begge i helt nye rammer, med ønsket om at indbyde til genlyt af ord, der ofte tages for givet. Men der er også nyskrevne vers af Benny Holst, og af Zenobias tekstforfatter på tidligere udgivelser, Martin Rauff-Nielsen, at finde på pladen.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
