"We needed this phase of Fado Bicha. After giving a lot of concerts only voice and guitar, now we move to a platform, with a more structured musical enrichment and with a bigger production, "said João Caçador.
Lila Fadista said that, on an artistic level, this was an experience that the two of them longed to have, to be in the studio, to record, to work with a producer and, after recorded music, to record a video clip.
In addition, despite the more than one hundred concerts given in less than two years of activity, they missed the chance to reach other audiences, especially those who do not live in the places where they have performed, leading not only message she carries.
João Caçador has no doubt that the first great expectation will be fulfilled, which is to bring to a video clip the romance between two men, expressed not only in its most physical part, but above all through affections.
"Our sexual orientation is our greatest form of activism and politics that we can have, without constraints, and I think people will like it even if they feel finally represented in something that speaks about them" , stressed.
Lila Fadista has full notion that many people will criticize, they will say that this is not fado, that they will have "very negative reactions".
"It is obvious that if we leave the den … people will fall on us and think it is inappropriate, which is to draw attention, but if that is the price to pay for being outside and saying that we exist, smile and love, so we pay, "he said.
In the music video by Tiago Leão, Chico and André are represented by a Brazilian boy and an Angolan boy, which, Lila emphasized, "turns out to be an evocation of fado's origins in Brazilian music and Angola music."
Then there is a mother and father who are against their love, demonstrated in "very sensual scenes of love on the palatial quay of Carrasqueira, there at the foot of Alcácer do Sal."
João Caçador emphasized that they simply represent themselves and nobody else, but admits that they also have the notion that they end up being the "symbol of something greater" through the music that composes and that, thanks to this, bring "to the light "poorly represented identities.
"It would be a great pleasure to have people from the fado community, fado singers that I admire, not necessarily support the music we play, but the goal, our mission and what we bring," Lila Fadista confided, adding that, this has not happened yet.
Despite the "constraints of various kinds", especially financial constraints, the duo have clear objectives. They have recorded the second theme, next year they release the album, and, at the end of May, they appear "the first great Fado Bicha concerts", the first on the 30th, at the MusicBox in Lisbon, then at 31st, in Évora and , in June, in Porto.
Then they intend to close a circle, "of very direct subversion", stop, have time to compose of root, music and letter, "more conceptual things, perhaps", and elevate the Fado Bicha to another level.
