Bossa & Morna is the transatlantic journey between Portugal, Brazil and Cape Verde, it is the union and celebration of the Portuguese language in its different accents and rhythms separated by the great Atlantic. Ivo Dias, son of Brazilian parents and Diogo Caetano, son of Portuguese parents, give voice to the album “Encontros”. Accompanied by the warm sound of guitars and cavaquinhos, the rhythmic precision of Iúri Oliveira, of Angolan origins, is added, bringing all the pulse of coladera, morna, Cuban rumba, obatala and semba to the samba. With all original songs and lyrics and with the single “Por Aí”, Bossa & Morna present a contagious sound sung by three voices that leave no one indifferent. The entire album is a journey, a story of sharing everyday life, epics, joys and sorrows. The song “Diz-me” is the ode to morna, sung in Portuguese and with the choro of the traditional Cape Verdean cavaquinho.
With five years of work together, BOSSA & MORNA present for the first time an author’s editing project, originals created at the right time of a gestation, full of dedication, respect for the origins and with a lot of love.
