Project Description


João Barradas HOME – An End As A New Beginning

HOME – An End As A New Beginning is the second album of João Barradas, accordionist and rising star of the Portuguese jazz scene. After his celebrated debut album „Directions“, this album unfolds with a musical style 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 translates to a very particular power on stage that becomes evident particularly during their live performances. Therefore this album is physically realeased as a special edition including both the studio album and exclusive video footage, recorded live at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.

“After a brilliant debut with “Directions”, Barradas managed to construct a new distinct space, solid and remarkable, to explore new sonic horizons.”
