How Can We Be Joyful in a World Full of Knowledge?

On the penultimate day of 2013, right at the dawn of the year, Bruno Pernadas would reveal Ahhhhh!, the single that announced his first solo album. Few titles express so perfectly the feeling we all had: “ahhhhh” of surprise, awe, astonishment, or perplexity. It was an almost nine-minute masterpiece that burst through like a meteor and that proclaimed not only an album, but a career and countless feats that we would only understand later. Joyful, as it was affectionately shortened, would be released in March of the following year and would end up bringing what we now know: a versatile and inspired composer, who in a decade put his music in films, theatre, dance, in a handful of records, and on many stages around this world.

Celebrating the occasion a decade later, Bruno Pernadas brings us Joyful in its entirety, plus a debut visual work made from archive material never shown live. Ten years later, we will exclaim “ahhhhh” again and feel everything that made us believe in the eternity of this music.
