About |

Celebrating the release of Nome De Guerra,  his new solo guitar album, André Matos presents a unique performance of solo guitar music over a set of images by photo-journalist José Sarmento Matos. 

The second volume of André Matos solo guitar series, Nome De Guerra (war name), is in part an homage to Portuguese writer and artist Almada Negreiros´ novel with the same title. Matos explores the idea of a personal innermost (“íntimo pessoal”), that Almada talks about: something of our very own, sacred, unattainable by others, and that blossoms into our own individuality and personality.
