Maneo de Cambre - C&A
Maneo de Cambre is one of the most intimate and intense tracks on Aire!. The sound of the violin and the accordion, a constant common thread, is expanded by the infinite magic of Sílvia Pérez Cruz's voice and the expressiveness of Carola Ortiz's clarinet. Together they reinterpret this traditional theme of Costa da Morte (Cambre, Galicia), which crossed the Atlantic following the course of emigration to Carabobo (Venezuela), where it was collected by Xurxo Fernandes. The music becomes a moving image through the sensitive gaze of Lucía Estévez, the dance of Fran Martínez and the acting of Raquel Espada. Maneo de Cambre is, therefore, a round trip made song and lament; a cry and a whisper that speaks of longing and loss. Of change and acceptance. Of the impossible attempt to retain something that inevitably slips out of hand. Of the ephemeral and, above all, of the eternal.
Florencio - C&A
Florencio is a tribute to tradition, to the popular, to the roots. To the power and truth of the simple and the authentic. To all those who cultivated and cared for the seeds that made the heritage that we treasure today sprout. The title refers to one of those essential figures, O cego dos Vilares, creator and transmitter of popular music and stories that he gave birth from his violin and his throat, and which he later spread through the villages and mountains of the Fonsagrada. Florencio is a duet track recorded rigorously live, naked and without makeup. Simple and sincere like the seed from which it is born. Played with the entrails and danced with the hands. Powerful and explosive. Ei van unhas xotas… Aire!
