After 15 years in the leadership of Dazkarieh, one of the most influent and international bands in the portuguese folk scene, Vasco Ribeiro Casais and Joana Negrão have a new band: Seiva.In their debut album, Seiva mix songs from the Portuguese oral tradicion (mainly for Beira-Baixa in the east of Portugal) with their own compositions. Its sonic identity, characterized by the exclusive use of Portuguese instruments (Viola Braguesa, Cavaquinho, Portuguese Bagpipes, Adufes and Portuguese Drums) to which is added some electronics, electricity, samples from old country side recordings and crowned by the powerful voice of Joana Negrão, is unique and represents an intrinsic portugality without getting stuck in the common places of folk but showing us a vision of our times.
