“Musician Marco Santos presents his album Evocations in a live concert. Marco is a musician of vast predispositions, a virtuoso multi-percussionist, an inspired pianist and a visionary composer and anyone who sits in the audience can easily check these attributes. What stands out when listening to this project is the tranquility that permeates most of the themes and that sometimes refers to an almost cinematic perception of time, which contributes to a certain stability of the thematic proposals, both at a rhythmic and melodic-harmonic level. In front of us are wide spans, wide plains, large lakes and then life appears that stands out among reeds, brooms, or discreet rocky agglomerations. with new changes that are apparently innocent, but which transport the narrative to other places. We speak of a kind of nomadic immobility, something that moves slowly, as if in levitation, from landscape to landscape, which becomes unbalanced here and there with non-invasive incidents, as if to maintain the flow of a contemplative thread that never tangles. about himself.

Pieces that, when finished, find a pair, or pairs, in previous works. It is not, therefore, subject to a theme – although it incorporates it – nor does it follow the rigor of a chronological order. The pieces are linked through emotional dialogues that are established and can be observed and understood through the drawing and/or color selection. Thematic incorporation is understood in the sometimes caricatured representation of the figures, but also in the geometry that reveals a need for concreteness and limits. 🇧🇷 Bio | Born in Vila do Bispo in 1962. He has lived in Lagos since 1965, where he studied and worked.
