Zé Maria, on the subject of the album of which he is the author, mentioned that “it is a beautiful example of how music and art, beautiful things, are better if they are built together, with a joint effort, and from now on with the help from these brilliant musicians“, who accompanied him on the record and on stage, on the Portuguese guitar by Pedro de Castro, also responsible for the musical production of the record, by João Filipe on the fado viola, and Francisco Gaspar on the bass guitar.

The fado singer also stated that “one thing that has always impressed me a lot in fado, and that was even a little at the origin of wanting to be a fado singer, was this quality that fado has to be so intimate, and you can see it in fado houses, and in traditional fado, fado allows a great opening of heart between who is singing and who is listening, and a very true and deep sharing“.
