À Espera do Futuro is the first record by the recently formed trio consisting of Portuguese jazz musicians Beatriz Nunes (voc), Paula Sousa (piano) and André Rosinha (double bass). The album contains nine original compositions by the three artists, combining their shared affinity for jazz, classical music as well as traditional Portuguese folk music.
The album À Espera do Futuro was written and recorded during the 2020 lockdown and reflects the various observations of socio-political phenomena emerging from the pandemic. The music is a result of a confrontation with conflicting simultaneous experiences, ranging from catastrophic to hopeful.
The trio premiered live in February 2020 in Potsdam, Germany and recorded their album in December 2020 in Lisbon, Portugal.
