We are proudly announcing our next release “HOME – AN END AS A NEW BEGINNING”, the second album of the incredible João Barradas, accordionist and rising star of the Portuguese jazz scene.
After his celebrated debut „Directions“, this album unfolds with a musical approach somewhere between jazz, improvised music and rock where the passion for complex bars really shows.
Featuring exclusively the MIDI version of the accordion, this project became a home to new concepts in the rich musical universe of João Barradas – where an ending does not necessarily means to stop but instead creating the possibility for new beginnings.
The youth of the band leads to a very particular power in stage that becomes evident particularly during their live performances. Therefore this album will be realeased as a special edition including both the album and exclusive video footage, recorded live at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.
