Listen to the album. The eleven tracks explore multiple combinations between 20th century classical music, jazz, electronic music, Brazilian rhythms, and free improvisation.

Amálgama brings together reworked versions of older themes originally written for other instrumental combinations, now presented here in new arrangements which emphasize the Duo's dialogue.

In addition, the album features seven new and previously unreleased compositions which deepen even more the combination of electronic sounds, drums, and percussion, producing a wealth of timbres, rhythms, and themes, and so creating an intense and unexpected sound.

Amálgama synthesizes a trajectory of inventiveness and daring very rare in the world of music both in Brazil and abroad. Working with the musical languages of our time, it faces the 21st century issues and advances frontiers.

The album was recorded and mixed at Soundfinger studios and mastered at UTOPIA Studio, both in São Paulo.

All compositions by Lelo Nazario (SACEM, Paris) except Fio de Aço by Lelo Nazario and Zé Eduardo Nazario, and Ano da Serpente by Zé Eduardo Nazario.
