This album is a collection of songs written in between Lisboa and Boston. It reflects my adaptation to USA, to a different life with new people, and also my feelings of longing for my landscapes, friends and family.

Moving to Boston in 2005, was a turning point in my life. Having had the opportunity to meet so many inspiring teachers/ musicians and to have the time and space to learn, share, compose and play with others was definitely something I will never forget.

The desire of recording an album has been with me for a while, but there was never the right moment and too many questions without good answers (where, with whom, what, how?). I didn’t want to force anything and always thought that the right moment would come. Everything flowed naturally- by the end of 2007 I had already enough material to record and had found the right musicians in Boston that gave so much life and shape to my music. So…we went in studio on January 31st 2008. It was really cold outside.

“Praia” (“beach” in English) was written after a Winter break spent in Portugal. When returning to the US, it was so cold in Boston and I had left such a warm and sunny Portugal… my thoughts were all on a beach walk that I had done a couple of days before- the sea breeze, the vastness of the sand, the sky, and the sun light were so amazing. The tune was all developed, based on its first chords, an idea that I had written down a month before. Very quickly it was finished.
