Danças Ocultas

BIOGRAPHY

Danças Ocultas are four Portuguese accordionists known for their highly original and innovative approach to the instrument. “Impressionist folk” is maybe the best label for their timeless art music inspired by classical tradition just as well as folklore and sacred themes: They create minimalist, profound sound paintings full of unexpected turns and noble melancholy, very special music taking you on a journey between heaven and earth. Their collaboration with Portuguese choreographer Paulo Ribeiro, regular appearances at international festivals and a highly acclaimed showcase at Womex 2010 have brought them international recognition far beyond the Portuguese orders.​
