‘tangente’ is a duo composed by the voices and violins of Beatriz Rola and Inês Lapa, whose compositions cross boundaries between written and improvised language. In the performance “it’s time”, the duo combines poetry with some themes from their EP ‘Poemografias’ (2022), and with sound reinterpretations of works by the so-called April singer-songwriters.
