“AQUI” is this place and it is this time. It is Portugal and the world seen through the eyes – and the senses – of a singer who sings not only matters of today but also matters of yesterday and tomorrow, what is local and universal, what unites us and separates us, what was left to celebrate that it is increasingly necessary to celebrate, to remember and to think.
“AQUI”, is a whole and entire Fado album, also a work that Fado definitely opens to other musical universes that are aesthetically close to it.
“AQUI” sings the city of Lisbon – feminine, free, diverse – where so many songs meet Fado, like tango or the samba, although out of Fado they marry it, naturally, in the voice of Carla Pires and in the instruments of the musicians.
