Para a Frente

A 6 track twenty-first century ep (32m 12s) — released November 6th 2020 on nonclassical

Para a frente is the first EP by pianist Késia Decoté on Nonclassical. Featuring expressive piano, chiming toy piano and subtle electronics, the EP highlights a number of pieces written specifically for Decoté by friends and collaborators including Michael Taplin, Yfat Soul Zisso and Angela E Slater. These works originally made up a huge part of Decoté's "Music by my Friends" concert series, an intimate celebration of the friendships that music brings to us.

Késia has been developing a rich and diverse career, as piano soloist, chamber music instrumentalist, contemporary music interpreter and as a musician in theatre productions.

She has also been developing an exciting career as an improviser, being member of Oxford Improvisers, and performing and recording in duo with cellist Bruno Guastalla.
