Live Concert at Bimhuis, Amsterdam 2023
A spell dictated to the human being, trapped in a cycle "Roda" of consumption of material goods. The doubt between the right and the risk, prison and freedom, death and life.
"Wheel, sorrow loose in the west wind, turn and turn in the turns you've taken, hard life in the corner of certainty that the day brings you. Risk, eternal cause of your dismay, betray death on the back of time, turn life into luck that revolves around the wheel ".

Vento do Mar
"The wind blows, the wave blows, hits the rock hard. Soft water at hard stone, hits with fear."
An energetic song that begins with the focus on the percussion of Sjahin During, culminating in the solo of saxophonist José Soares.
"Vento do Mar" talks about the wisdom of to be ready to enjoy the life's opportunities.
"Earth, what do you echo in my footsteps? Earth, what do I feel vibrating inside of my self?"
First through the word and after through the sound of the instruments, "Terra" is a call to the wise nature.
An attempt to connect with life, in a search for the purpose and desires.
"Maya" talks about three common illusions in our daily lives: the importance of other people's opinions, the attachment to the past, and the fascination for greed.
Mists that captivate us in the swing of everyday life.
"The more you have, the more you want, dictates greed, driven by the power of ignorance ".
Canto de Vida
In the swing of a lullaby, rise the organic sounds of Cacha Mundinho
In "Canto de Vida" Joana Almeida tells the story of a woman's life, from childhood to the desire for her own end by the weight of age.
"My cloak of wise mantle feels the deep pull, I want to go to the other world, that this one has lost its charm".
A travel by the world of the dream, where the communication is established in another level.
The contrast between the experience of the dream, where everything makes sense, and the return to reality, where only survives the cloudy memories that we can not describe by words .
Flor de Cereja
An arrangement by Sjahin During, joined the composition of Joana Almeida with the members of Cacha Mundinho.
"Flor de Cereja" expresses the human inability to choose who to love and how love overlaps distance and conflicts.
"Cherry blossoms grow when you touch my skin".
