Holise in use for the new album of Filho da Mãecalled Terra Dormente. Summary of the album (translated):
The return of Filho da Mãe is an achievement. First, for himself, Rui; then, for all of us, who have been waiting for too long. Going through a pandemic transformed into a tunnel with no apparent exit in the worst way, the light that was flickering at its end did not always correspond to reality, ending up mixing with various fictions, adding torments, doubts and uncertainties. At a certain point, it was precisely this lack of notion of what is real or not that ended up serving as inspiration, an uncertainty that multiplied in the very credible hypothesis of several edited albums, between the acoustic angel and the electric demon, between drafts in the Alentejo and more drafts in Lisbon, made up of words with double meanings fingered for hours on end. Inevitably, the wait became an obligation, like a necessary pilgrimage. At the end of it all, right now, Rui confesses to us that postponing was the best option of all, to come out of that tunnel alive and create, out of pain and time, the music that Filho da Mãe needed to make.
Terra Dormente was recorded over two years between Lisbon (Music Box and Fábrica de Pão – CTL) and Ílhavo (Chapel of the Municipal Library of Ílhavo and Fábrica das Ideias in Gafanha da Nazaré – 23 miles)
