Lusoriental Sounds from Lisbon
Originally from Italy, Spain and Germany, we all meet in Lisbon and create the trio Faya. This word evokes fire, which is heat, strength. In Portuguese it is a tree, symbolising root and nature. The beech means also fairy in the Ligurian tradition, in Italy. In this meeting of voices, strings and wind, we discover the feminine and the pleasure of mixing their own musical influences. Our concerts are journeys through different universes, inspired by traditional styles, such as Venezuelan polo, Indian carnatic music or Peruvian Landó. September 2019 we were honored as the WINNER OF THE CREOLE WORLD MUSIC AWARD in Berlin, receiving this nice critic of the jury: “This band showed a varied playing style, high musicality, original instrumentation, beautiful communication with the audience, lively performance and great joy in playing.” Since September ’22 the Band is collaborating with the Booking Agency Hauptmann Entertainment (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) https://www.hauptmannentertainment.com/.
