about

"Santos's debut album is very strong. It has a balance between honesty, sophistication and rawness that fulfills me. Right from the first song I was transported into a universe of colors and shapes that were completely new to me but at the same time it carried a constant feeling of affinity. It’s just like being at home listening to one of those albums that influenced me as a teenager, and every time you listen, each track is a rediscovery that brings and will always bring special emotions."

André Matos (Portuguese Guitarist)

"Ponto de Partida is a wonderful album !
André Santos's compositions are remarkable - superb work on textures.
He leads here a highly cohesive team of top notch musicians and his guitar playing has depth and originality : André clearly has a voice of his own. "

Romain Pilon (French Guitarist)

Track Name: Mutantes (Feat. Joana Espadinha e Margarida Campelo)
Nem vi que escureceu, mas foi então
um beijo que partiu
sem cor
dormiu meu amor
quase que... morreu.

Vejo assim no céu o teu esplendor
mas
sobre mim desperta o fim da dor que eu quis

Se adormecer vou sonhar
construir de onde se desfez
Quando acordar
tento outra vez.



Procuro-te nos destroços do que fui, a derradeira negação de uma sentença consagrada.

É preciso deixa-lo morrer, aquele sonho.
Abraçar o vazio insustentável, até que não doa mais.

Somos mutantes, tu e eu.
Seres errantes de futuro incerto,
depois do amor.

Vais-te aos poucos, desvaneces, enquanto me despedaço.

Regressas de vez em quando, quando não quero, para me lembrar que o que foi nunca se perde.

Urge encontrar um sentido nos avanços e recuos do acaso,
mas não há sentido algum, apenas a despedida.

E o que sobrou?
A imensidão do mundo.
