6 years and 180 balls after, there it is: A REVOLTA DOS BADALOS (something like "The Revolt of the Clappers", the very first one coming out!
On the CD, you will find original compositions (Ex: Schottishes, Waltzes, Marches) and radical arrangements of Portuguese Dances (Ex: Malhão, Erva Cidreira, Regadinho) putting a mark on this first album, that concentrates, in a Compact Disc, the energy and spontaneity transmitted by the band on stage (Muscled Interpretations).
UXU KALHUS can be defined as a group of fusion (Folk-Rock-Jazz), with influences of all the continents and styles (Chameleonic Sonorities) but with an assumed traditional root (Radical Trad); compositions and arrangements search inspiration in the folklore (Subversive FolK), reinventing a new language for the Ball and returning dances to the "Dance Floor" (Progressive Ball).
The CD also includes a video that teaches group dances.
The layer is made of textile paper, that lasts for more than 400 years!
