Hora Torguiana

The album artwork for “Hora Torguiana” draws inspiration from the rich and introspective poetry of Miguel Torga and the melancholic feeling of Fado. It’s an abstract composition that aims to capture the essence of Miguel Torga’s profound and nature-infused verses and the Portuguese traditional musical style. These abstract shapes try to reflect the organic shapes found in nature but are simultaneously absorbed by a dark and mournful aura.

The color palette is a blend of earthy tones, with deep greens, rich browns, and hints of gold that evoke Miguel Torga’s work, and black is used to reflect the traditional outfit that students wear when singing Fado.
