Contemporary classical / experimental music from Brazil.
"Mitose" by Pancreas.
Recorded in 2015.
This album, comprised of six works from a research that interconnects the passionate aspects of Shakespeare sonnets with religiously sourced African rhythms. Unlike the "immaculate condition" notably held by Christians, African beliefs are based on human archetypes. Orixas, like all of humanity, have an emotional response stirred by love, respect and, sometimes, possession. Counterpointed by a where the ego comes before the common good, well described and found in reasonable portion among mundane literature, including Shakespeare sonnets.
