Alrihkh A song to immerse one’s soul in. Wild-spirited and hauntingly moving, as if one has ventured into an ancient sacred place in the bowels of the Earth. Communion with a dark pool in a cavern…8+/10.

LYRICS by Priscila da Costa Deixa te levar pela corrente do mar Equilíbrio elegante e suave Se não sabes aonde vais Segue o brilho dos corais Iluminado a vida Deixa te desses fios e embarca no navio Revelando sonhos desconhecidos Desaparecendo adentro do redemoinho Para descobrir outro caminho Nas ondas do mar Nas ondas do mar Se o peso do passado te empede de ficar ao meu lado, Desaferrolha o cofre enferrujado Envia me um pouco de carinho numa carta sem Destino, Numa garrafa flutuando no mar Mas não te deixas assustar por as brechas desse lar resgatando beleza sem fim Nas ondas do mar Nas ondas do mar


Second chapter of the artist residencies series shared by SANGRE DE MUÉRDAGO and JUDASZ&NAHIMANA in Luxembourg.

"Cantiga da Rainha das Aguas" was composed, recorded and filmed live in a few days of December 2021.


THE SONG POEM BY Pablo C. Ursusson

CANTIGA DA RAINHA DAS AGUAS – The illusion of stillness.

On a cloud I was born,
with the winds I travelled,
no burden, no fog,
and through vast lands I witnessed.

Until I fell...

On grounds I rested, through filters of soil I descended,
into the cave,
into darkness and freezing waters,
into vast calm and silence.
Night and dreams.
The illusion of stillness.

Yet the light took me again,
through the spring I was reborn
and in streams I once again descended,
in rivers and waterfalls I was shaken.
And I witnessed,
other lands and other creatures,
another songs I heard,
another gusts I tasted.

Finally in the seas I learned,
the dance of the waves and the swirls,
until up to the air I returned,
as the Sun took me
and at last I was aware,
transformations and dream,
growth, love and care.
The cloud embraced me once again.
