Sara Serpa & André Matos
“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.“ - Irish Times
The combination of the voice and guitar of Sara Serpa and André Matos is magic, dazzling and calm. After a 7 years hiatus, they release Night Birds, a new album exploring songs, improvisation and reflections on parenthood and climate change.
The Portuguese native and New York based artists have been working together since 2005. They achieved a unique sonic world, drawing upon pure and contemplative sounds through a personal approach to melody and poetry. Their musical identity reveals both their Portuguese culture as well as a certain allure inspired by the creative artistic environment of New York. Serpa and Matos have been performing their music in countries like Portugal, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, and the United States.

“The chemistry and teamwork 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.” – Allen Morrison, DownBeat Magazine
