Event description

Sara Serpa & André Matos - Album Release Night Birds 

Sara Serpa- voice

André Matos- guitar

Dov Manski- piano + synth

“The duo excels at combining pure sounds- vowels, strings, words, horn, keys, breath and creating soothing,inspiring musical sketches.” – Suzanne Lorge, New York City Jazz Record

“The chemistry and teamwork are close to perfect. Matos’ delicate, lyrical electric guitar, intricate and hypnotic,is the perfect foil for Serpa’s mostly wordless vocals, which are cool, calm and precise.” – Allen Morrison, DownBeat Magazine

“Serpa and Matos are sophisticated musicians, concocting a genre all their own, one that borrows from many – jazz, pop, Brazil and elsewhere – but is beholden to none.“ - Irish Times

The combination of the voice and guitar of Sara Serpa and André Matos is magic, dazzling and calm. After a 7 years hiatus, they release Night Birds, a magnetic and compelling new album exploring songs, improvisation and reflections on fast-paced societies of the modern world, questioning the consumption and exploitation of natural ecosystems,  parenthood and climate change. Night Birds establishes Serpa and Matos’ gifts as a creative and an expansive duo in a program of contrasting beauty and darkness, with mesmerizing and textural pieces featuring Dov Manski, Sofia Jernberg, Okkyung Lee and João Pereira. For this concert, they will perform in trio with Dov Manski.

The Portuguese native and New York based artists have been working together since 2005. They achieved a unique sonic world, drawing upon pure and contemplative sounds through a personal approach to melody and poetry. Their musical identity reveals both their Portuguese culture as well as a certain allure inspired by the creative artistic environment of New York. Serpa and Matos have been performing their music in countries like Portugal, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, and the United States.

Song People:
