Recorded in 2009-2010, Pontes is an attempt to create something personal, yet global. Inspired by the city of Porto, as well as some traveling, it's a personal view on the acoustic guitar as a means of composition. Part autobiography, part experimentation, 9 tracks of sheer acoustic goodness - and a couple of guest appearances.
