"In May 1989, Artur Fernandes, Filipe Cal, Filipe Ricardo and Francisco Miguel had a dream to look for and worked their musical performance skills meanwhile they studied the possibilities of taking this instrument away from folklore music ways, accepting what then was known as ” the concertina will”, but writing a new music for it. This was the time that led the band to its name and to its first record, Danças Ocultas (1996), with a repertory on which predominate Artur Fernandes compositions.

After that, came a adventuring time, less ingenuous and more artistic, resulting from the continuous contacts with other performers, from experiences on stage, from the first travels and partnerships, motivating the change of the group into a sharing creativity nucleus and leading to the recording of “Ar” the second record which affirms the beginning of a self musical grammar and shows some technical innovations like the use of a specially built “bass concertina”.
Since then the band has been experiencing the links between that musical grammar and a more universal and trans-cultural view of the musical phenomenon as well as the contemporaneous cultural ways. "  Jorge P. Pires
