After traversing ancestral waters in her previous project, Novos Mares - Aleppo. Sefarad. Olinda, Fortuna now dives into Sacred Memories.
In herlatest work, she sings timeless songs that also shed light and emotion on the identity of her own diaspora.
Once more, the diversity of languages - Ladino (Judeo-Spanish), Hebrew, Yiddish, French Arabic, Portuguese - reflects the multicultural bridges she builds ,and transcending fronteers with her music.
Sacred Memories reminds us of the ships on myriad exoduses through the Mediterranean and Atlantic waters; these perilous journeys as turbulent as they were hopeful.
Yet, the album also does a deep dive into the memories of generations and their geographies.
"These songs carry the identity of the soul in poetic, sensual and sacred form, accompanied by original arrangements which resound with a unique perspective" (Gustavo Kurlat)
