Ecco cosa dice di loro la stampa internazionale:
“The duo excels at combining pure sounds- vowels, strings, words, horn, keys, breath and creating soothing, inspiring musical sketches.”
New York City Jazz Records
“…the chemistry and team work are close to perfect (…) Matos’ delicate, lyrical electric guitar, intricate and hypnotic, is the perfect foil for Serpa’s mostly wordless vocals, which are cool, calm and precise”.
“Ms. Serpa, a vocalist, and Mr. Matos, a guitarist, recently made a calmly stunning duo album, “Primavera,” that capitalizes on their many affinities: as limber improvisers, as thoughtful composers, as selfless ensemble players, and as internationalists hailing originally from Portugal.”
The New York Times
“Serpa and Matos are sophisticated musicians, concocting a genre all their own, one that borrows from many – jazz, pop, Brazil and elsewhere – but is beholden to none.“
“(…) decidedly otherworldly and totally original”
The Classical Arts
“Their style is so simple and yet so unique. All The Dreams is music in its purest form (…)”
“With elegance and subtlety, Serpa and Matos have developed a refined and balanced dialogue. A partnership that not only is the sum of their talents, but a perfect musical union”.
