Recorded live at the spectacular Grande Auditório of the Fundação Gulbenkian in Lisbon, this unique occasion brings together the voices of celebrated early music soprano Ana Quintans and popular fado singer Ricardo Ribeiro in an exotic journey through time and place. The music combines baroque period sonorities with the distinctive sound of the Portuguese guitar, introducing stylistic elements from Arabic and Galician music and ranging from medieval cantigas to traditional fado in its purest form. The result is a vivid portrait of Portuguese musical identity from the 13th century to the present.
