Ormuz was a delightful and very experimental collaboration between two duos, our Zambra Del Moro
, and early music duo formed by
Melodie Michel and Sofia Nereida. After quite a bit of brainstorming on what could be done together, our collaboration happened in the form of a live concert in Porto, at Igreja das Taipas, in June 2016.
And it was great in many aspects! Besides the magical acoustic of the church, we chose a very diverse program, that encompassed original music, traditional pieces from the middle east and Africa, improvisations, classical and
early music, you name it! Of course it had a very experimental character to it, due to the instruments we played, and certain compromises had to be made in so that the arrangements would work, but I think we did a good job!
Here's "Parfum de Gitane" in this format, a song by Anouar Brahem.
