The music of Sergio Fabian Lavia & Dilene Ferraz reflects the cultural richness of Argentina and Brazil, forming a set of experiences shaped by traditional sounds blended with more experimental aspects.
Starting from the title of their project “Saudalgia” the complexity and multiplicity of the proposal can be deduced. Saudade and Nostalgia, Brazil and Argentina, two places of origin, two ways of naming a common sentiment.
The artists become a symbol of two cultures where opposition and contrast coexist with complementarity and understanding. The duo received the “Premium Music Awards” for their outstanding work as performers and composers.
