Pura Vida

New Repertoire

Pura Vida
(soundtrack)

In Pura Vida (sound track)) Mísia sings Fado witch is not sad or joyful, as she likes to say. It's Destiny.
In this album the voice is surrounded by a surprising and new musical sonority.

FEELINGS AND WISHES

After living for two years that - for the worst reasons - represented an essential learning process of
decisive importance, I am still the same albeit different.
In fact, everything has changed.
Especially my work, which is me - there are no borders.

Here is the soundtrack of that period in which there is heaven and hell, harshness and passion,
Fados of bitter longing, songs of heart and bone, black roses, absence, tears and rebirth.

The musics of Pura Vida (soundtrack) are pure music, pure musical notes completely free of rules
because I do not need anymore to belong to any genre or tribe after what I have experienced.
I cannot nor do I want to render this banal.

I do not think Fado is happy or sad, it is Life, Fate.
Only a music with this nobility allows us to use its most symbolic melodies the way painters use
primary colours to express everything their souls need to say.
That is why I say that this album includes fado musics but it is not an album of Fado.

Pura Vida (soundtrack) is full of gaps, rough edges and sometimes a little
"silk, velvet and wool".
The Portuguese guitar is Heaven and the electric guitar Hell.
The feeling of tragedy is conveyed in this work through the electric guitar.
It is not a question of being "pop or modern", on the contrary.
I dare to say that there is a cinematographic beauty in Fabrizio Romano's arrangements.

It is not an album to anaesthetise the public. It is an album that seeks the "other", an echo of that
fragility and inability that we have all felt.
The mystical Rumi said that the wound is the place through which light enters.
In this case you are being asked to hear the difference. The beauty, strength and humility that a
"calvario" can offer us . The anxiety of a possible path through the words of Miguel Torga, Tiago
Torres da Silva and Vasco Graça Moura, among others.
And finally, the wish to live and sing without being afraid to show your scars.
