ORELHA Negra results from putting pieces of a puzzle together. In each piece we find the roots of black music, jazz, soul, funk, groove and hip-hop, and plenty of Portuguese culture represented by well-known musicians who are led to a common language. This music is a dialogue between the past filtered in a sampler and the present imagined by musicians, and so a loop taken from an album by Paulo de Carvalho can be detached from its source, take on a new life by repetition and be coordinated with the rest: scratch, bass, drums and keyboards. The capacity to transform their influences into a new and unique sound is their challenge.
