The "BANDA DAS CRECHAS" has the face of a collective universe which we started constructing between us 27 years ago based on conversation, art, live music, the love for our own culture and our curiosity for the strange at “Casa das Crechas”. An open collective; a band 2.0 in which the usual musicians get together with occasional visitors to keep the tradition alive, with the sound and emotion of the ceilidh session. This disc is a recording of one of those nights of song and dance in which Casa das Crechas honours its history converting itself, once more, into the meeting place it has been since the middle of the 19th century.Since the recording of the CD "ABDC" in 2010 the band decided to take the next step outside its usual space, and show the force of a simple yet powerful live show on the international stage.ABDC is the soundtrack of this collective universe of ours. It is a soundtrack combining history, commitment and passion that nobody could interpret better than A Banda das Crechas. For that, not everyone can fit into this open and plural group of players. The others, the ones who are not on this recording, are those who throughout all these years brought the music to life in Casa das Crechas. They are anonymous and well known authors, musicians and non musicians who gathered together the cultures of the world and who, in meeting, took our culture to the world. This disc is the best tribute to all of those men and women and all those places that, like Casa das Crechas, are meeting places… places of passion.
