After the very well received “Lost in Translation”, André Carvalho continues his journey through the world of untranslatable words with a sequel.

Carvalho states that “you’ve certainly come across concepts for which we don't have a word in our language. This does not mean that it does not exist in another language and that another culture has created a term for such a concept. Learning such words can be a way for us to be able to express ourselves better, see the world through the eyes of others and have a greater awareness of the outside and inner world”. According to the bassist and composer, his fascination for untranslatable words started as a mere curiosity, but quickly became something compelling and, therefore, it made perfect sense to continue the project. In this sequel, Carvalho reunites the trio formed by saxophonist José Soares and guitarist André Matos, his usual collaborators.

Described by Carvalho as a “contemplative, intimate and at the same time rough album”, this new volume will have seven compositions by its leader and one by André Matos, where improvisation, spontaneity and timbre-textural exploration are at the center of the trios’ sound. Returning to the idea that learning untranslatable words can be a bridge between cultures, the new album will include compositions inspired by words from languages ​​such as Farsi, Hausa or Finnish.

When talking about “Lost in Translation”, André mentions an iconic quote by Wittgenstein: “the limits of my language mean the limits of my world”. André says he really believes in this and that for him, when we learn new words, our conscience becomes more sensitive to others, we become more empathetic and our world becomes richer.
