about

Joana Reais Lisbon, Portugal

Joana Reais, a performer born and raised in Lisbon, carries in her origins the curiosity for new horizons and, in her voice, the mixture of meanings that define all people. Her music undoes distances by taking the streets of Alfama to Copacabana and imagining Maputo as a neighborhood of the megalopolis of São Paulo.

It is with her jazz ensemble that she releases her unique worldmusic debut album.

Track Name: Gatos
GATOS
music by Carlos Garcia, lyrics by Eugénio de Andrade

Gatos dos quintais
Gatos dos portões
Gatos dos quartéis
Gatos das pensões

Vêm da Índia, da Pérsia
De Niníve Alexandria
Vêm do lado da noite
Do oiro e rosa do dia

Gatos das duquesas
Gatos das meninas
Gatos das viúvas
Gatos das ruínas

Gatos e gatos e gatos
Arre, que já estamos fartos!
Track Name: Aqui Tão Perto de Ti
AQUI TÃO PERTO DE TI
music and lyrics by Múcio Sá

Perdida nas janelas da alma
Olho as cidades sem tempo
Cenários de vidas imaginadas
Distantes do trabalho intenso

Mundos no tempo imaginado
Perdidos à entrada do labirinto
No meio da vastidão a poesia
De um dia a mais a viver

Janelas da alma, sol do meio-dia
Riquezas de quem não tem o que fazer
Cenários de vidas imaginadas
Frestas de luz ao amanhecer

E se o amor
Bate as asas e voa sobre nós
Eu vou ser feliz
Aqui, amanhã e depois

E se o amor
Bate as asas e voa sobre nós
Eu vou ser feliz
Aqui, tão perto de ti
Track Name: Volta
VOLTA
music by Valter Rolo, lyrics by Múcio Sá

Volta
Vem ouvir meu lamento
Bem sofrido
Minha dor num tormento
Qual ferida

De amor não se cura
Devagar
Sem chorar e sem sofrer
Eu sei

Vem, aprender a perdoar
Vem, sonhar um novo amor
Ainda é tempo
Para mim.

Volta
Já são tantas manhãs
Assim tão triste
Dias, horas não passam
E quem diz

Que o nosso amor
Não vai curar
Nunca soube o que é amar
Assim

Vem, aprender a perdoar
Vem, sonhar um novo amor
Ainda é tempo
Volta para mim.
Track Name: Maria Lisboa
MARIA LISBOA
music by Alain Oulman, lyrics by David Mourão Ferreira

É varina, usa chinela,
Tem movimentos de gata
Na canastra, a caravela,
No coração, a fragata

Em vez de corvos no xaile
Gaivotas vêm pousar
Quando o vento a leva ao baile,
Baila no baile com o mar

É de conchas o vestido
Tem algas na cabeleira
E nas veias o latido
Do motor duma traineira

Vende sonho e maresia,
Tempestades apregoa,
Seu nome próprio – Maria,
Seu apelido – Lisboa!
