The combination of Lia Pamina’s delicious voice and Charlie Mysterio’s and Roger Arias’ (Os Peregrinos) elegance and inspiration is back, to give us this small, exquisite gem.
A single inspired by the work of the Galician poet and novelist Rosalía de Castro, where folk sounds, Brazilian music, and infinitely exquisite arrangements come together.
“Follas Novas” could be used to define what beauty is. It is so simple it’s disarming. Delicate arpeggios, dream-like harmonies, a pristine chorus that perfectly crowns the whole song’s meaning. It is a lucid and magisterial demonstration that when poetry and music come together hand in hand, their association can be as powerful as that of image and sound.
But the triumvirate reaches even higher levels with the animated video by Raquel Calvo, who once again makes a statement in sensitivity, esthetic fantasy and creativity.
