“Se Eu Fosse Angolano” (S.E.F.A.) is a conceptual audio-visual piece of work that using Angolan contemporary society draws a distinct tone when approaching, questioning and repositioning the usefulness of identity. All citizens part of “modern societies” on planet Earth, specially the ones living in communities that seek to reinvent themselves after decades of either inner individual conflict or civil blindness, are the target of this project. Not being a happy listen it is full of hope and ambition for a better, greater future for more then nations, the people that make out those same nations.
On stage the challenge of the project is to, bring to life the concept we call “The Deconstruction Of The Legitimacy Syndrome” as well as to have the ultimate stand off between “Identity vs. Motivation”.
Motivation, belief, faith and its tangibility, use and consequence are at the centre of the proposal. If we had a question it would be:
Can you really change a human without interacting, invading, changing what he believes?
At the end of the day it is just a show that through music, poetry, projections and live performance will race towards the interaction we have with our own relationships, history, emotional ghosts, social celebrations and much more…

Thank You | A lot of people in the course of these past 3 years have been indispensable for the materialization of this CD & DVD. I want to say that you are all in my prayers. You belong to my realm… I am truly thankful for GOD having placed you on my path. I just saw a documentary “In search of Sugar Man” and feel like thanking the world… So no better way for me to thank all of you then to thank GOD. I see Him in you, all that you do for me and with me… Those that feel uncomfortable with the GOD thing, just think that I am extremely thankful that the universe allowed you to be the sperm that made it from the testicle to the egg!!! If you feel that this ‘thank you’ belongs to you, it is yours; my love. You were all I wanted to make proud… This is for you. I am gone. Thank you so much… YOU, THEY, US, WE. L.O.V.E.IS.
