A unique combination of saxophone quartet and guitar consisting exclusively of Portuguese musicians. Of course the Fado, a Portuguese music genre, should not be missing!

“Renascer” is a new collaboration project of Maat Saxophone Quartet and the guitarist António Carlos Costa, where the Portuguese musical genre Fado is explored on an unusual instrumentation: saxophone quartet and Portuguese guitar.

Being Fado one of the biggest cultural representations of this country, the idea of putting together the already usual Portuguese guitar with the saxophone quartet came across quite natural and spontaneously. From there surges the invitation to António Carlos Costa, with whom Maat coincided in the city of Amsterdam.António Carlos Costa is a former student of the University of Coimbra, and as someone who deprived with the traditional Fado from that city, the project will highlight the Fado of Coimbra. Songs from the iconic guitar player Carlos Paredes will be revisited, which are mostly only instrumental, as original themes from Costa, some of them exclusively composed for this project, and all the arrangements are made by the saxophonist/arranger Daniel Ferreira. In addition, new contemporary works will be presented by Maat Saxophone Quartet. Works by Arnold Marinissen and Nuno Lobo written for Maat and inspired on songs by Paredes will be presented.

“Renascer” is an original song from Costa, which means “Reborn”, and gives name to a project where a new life is given to such a Portuguese musical genre, on a full Portuguese collaboration.
