MÛ MBANA & CRISTOBAL MONTESDEOCA
Whispering is like being water and knowing that a powerful force is found hidden in subtlety. Simply tune the ear, shake off all that noise pollution has stunned us; just listen, without trying ... It is the most direct route for all that beauty to get to the soul. Direct and accurate way.
Mû Mbana is allied with Cristobal Montesdeoca to offer their particular (re) vision of those songs that have accompanied him throughout his life, a tribute to his teachers... a repertoire with the works of some of the most celebrated composers of Guinea Bissau, like Jose Carlos Schwarz, Armando Salvaterra, Toni Osvaldo , Tunu or Aliu Bari as well as elements of own authorship.
Mû’s voice comes as a whisper, like a light breeze at dawn. It is a choice that goes beyond aesthetic taste, sing from what’s small, go for what’s subtle, it is an act of courage. Claim a personal way of making music.
Cristóbal, meanwhile, knows how to accompany this delicate experiment with splashes of colour from deep listening to a pianist who knows how to give rise to that voice. It is a personal and unique talent, about taste and especially about the always attentive and successful.
