ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CONCEPT AND ALBUM TITLE: "DESAFIO" (CHALLENGE)
The title is inspired and a tribute to "canto ao desafio" from traditional Portuguese music, that has a particularly strong improvisation component, and is associated with humour and people socialization in festive environments.
It intends to give value to the word "Desafio" (Challenge) as being a word that let us go beyond our limits, develop, create and discover, consequently is one of the most important words that needs to be celebrated and promoted.
The album also aims to be a challenge (Desafio) to tradition: trying to reinvent the "Cavaquinho" (a Portuguese traditional instrument); making new arrangements of traditional songs with influences from other musical genres; incorporating music from other genders/styles in the purpose of the traditional dances and tradicional music gender; incorporating original music with influences of traditional music mixed with other music influences from around the world and all genres.
The album is also a challenge to other styles of music to approach to the tradition, so that they begin to include more traditional instruments and the influence of traditional music.

SYNOPSIS
"Desafio" (Challenge) is an acoustic album that seeks the most diverse musical influences (such as Pop / Rock, Bossa-nova, Jazz, Classical and even Electronic Music) in the simplicity of his own origins: the Traditional Music. It is also inspired by different traditional dances of the world. The styles are mixed the different techniques are incorporated, the concepts are merged into a alchemy only possible on a base of solid elements with the weight of centuries of life: traditional music and dances from the world.

MUSICAL PRODUCTION AND CONCEPT
The sound of this album is based on the concept "guitar faces": all sounds except for human voice and diatonic harmonic are obtained from guitars or their derivatives (Classical Guitar, Portuguese "Cavaquinho", Bass, Portuguese "fado" guitar) including the sounds of all kinds of percussions that can be heard.
Likewise for the sake of concept, all sounds are also acoustic (captured with microphones, always natural sound, without equalization or any additional effect).

THE PORTUGUESE "CAVAQUINHO"
This instrument is particularly exploited in this album, with even two songs completely dedicated to it. It is intended to promote, encourage, explore techniques, and try to take advantage of much of the potential of this Portuguese traditional instrument of multiple and different ways, incorporating it also less likely musical styles.

THE DANCE
It is intended that all the songs on this album as well as heard can be danced If desired, such as all the songs have a hint of a dance: a traditional dance choreography of the world with which they can be danced. The goal is that in this way the music beyond the musical artistic purpose can also have a social purpose (by being danced in group or couple).

CD AS PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT
This CD contains and is also a physical support for a photographic project entitled "DesFio." with 12 photographs (one for each song) created by Ludmila Queirós.
