After several years in projects in the field of classical music, Carla Pontes releases her 1st solo album entitled “O Mar em Mim”. 12 unpublished themes of Portuguese variety.
2022 is the year in which the singer assumes her narrative of emotions and nostalgia, in a neo-fadista aesthetic, with several “world music” accents and a contemporary touch with electronic elements. However, classical instruments, such as the piano and cello, continue to be mixed.
Challenged by a mutual friend, that it would be the perfect (musical) marriage, singer Carla Pontes and producer Barqueiro, accept to dive into the journey of exchanging views and sensibilities, starting to explore original material, and go from port to port collecting shells and stars, molding itself in listening and instinct, in search of the island of inspiration… this is how this route was born, “O Mar em Mim” and its 12 tributaries.
The MAR element is the central poetics of the record. The embarkation and disembarkation of stories and destinations, in a sonorous sea that takes us and returns us, curled by the foam of crystalline dreams…
The Carlos do Carmo Auditorium was chosen for this launch as it is home to many of the projects launched by Carla Pontes and will feature several guest musicians.
