Andreia: When I received the invitation from Dear Raushan to let me be inspired by her improvisation, at the time with the name wave.34, I felt massively flattered because it was an amazing free piece, without a squared pulse, and also because she entrusted me with something so huge, and without reservation she gave me her total trust! An improvisation with its own breathing and light, an improvisation made by such a unique instrument with which I had already felt enormous intimacy in previous partnerships! This piece quickly became the MOMENTO - Moment, in all my heart. For nothing is more important than that. The Moment. The Mountain. The Shepherd with his healthy and free flock, walking and making music. There it was my Portuguese root trying to recover this memory of this very special soundscape, which kept man close to his most assertive and unpretentious guide, Nature. Today in Portugal, the "Chocalho" - rattle, and the landscape it represents is considered Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, due to its tendency to extinguish itself and thus also extinguish this very important bond. Cause there was a time when man knew, loved, cared for and thanked each animal he ate at his family table, and it was not so long ago, remember? You must, please.

Alpha, the mature son of his Mother Nature who was not Her first manifestation of Life, but the first to understand some of Mothers deepest mysteries. Universal Mother of all Life, who forgives everything to Her son, giving him everything he will need to live. Even a virus if so.. Until the day when She herself needs Healing, for so many pains that She receives from this rational and intelligent son. Ours is the power to crystallize all Her beauty and health. The power to ask for forgiveness in all the languages of our “Babel tower”, or to simply abandon that request and start to compensate Mother simply recognizing Her importance, not just the mysteries. A daily gesture mirrored in us, sons, reflecting on our total dependence on Her well being. Hindi poetry represents the Mother's voice, who this time scolds and asks why we continue to call her Mother..Portuguese poetry represents your son's request for forgiveness. And all the sounds registered in the song such as all the timbres, felt this call inevitably. Gratitude Brothers and Sisters! Gratitude Mother!
