LISTEN:

 

Mehmari and Loureiro are both composers and multi instrumentalists who carry within themselves different musical universes. In this work, their origins and musical experiences are the triggers for creating new sounds: the fusion between classical and popular song and instrumental music, seeking to break these conceptual dualities and explore the musical possbilidades found in the transience of genres. The repertoire is made of compositions created by the duo itself, music of both composers and composition from brazilian icons such as Guinga, rearranged from the unique sound that these musicians exploit through diverse instrumentation that play (vibraphone, piano, drums, synthesizers, etc. ).
