"Over time, we've got used to playing together as a duo, despite the 10-year difference in our ages. While still in Madeira, we often got together to play from the first moment the younger one of us started playing the guitar to accompany the elder one on standards and typical jam session music.

Some years later, in 2009 or 2010, we made our first live presentation and from then on, others followed.

We have alternated between a quarteto and duo and, despite it not being common to use two guitars, we have found common ground and made what started as a prank into something that works.
For the last two years we've been talking about the chance of recording some music we've been playing over recent years, the criteria being the themes we both like. I hope you'll enjoy listening to the record as much as we enjoyed recording it.

The fundamental aspect in the edition of this record was the support and precious help by many people and entities. We wish to give special thanks to António Quintino and Luís Candeias; Maria Bouza Pinto; Mariana Norton; Vera Marmelo; Luís Nunes, Paulo Ferraz and Saúl Ferreira; Fábio Remesso; Alexandre Lima and Teresa Gonçalves.
To mum Ana, dad Gil and sister Bárbara.

And last but not least, we wish to thank the crowdfunders, without whose support it would not be possible for the record to be out! To all those who in some way gave their support for this project."
