The Rhythm of Tides
The Rhythm of Tides (Por Mares do Imaginário) features 7 leading Portuguese and Portuguese African performers from Lisbon alongside the Grand Union Orchestra's regular singers, jazz soloists and Asian musicians.
They play a series of songs and dramatic instrumentals tracing the history and legacy of empire from the voyages of Vasco da Gama, through the exile of Camões and establishment of colonial rule, to the wars of independence in Angola, Guiné and Mozambique.
