Maubere Timor

2022

From soaring island vibes to hymns of the freedom fighters, veterans of Maubere Timor have released a self-titled, stunning 12 track album to memorialise historical movement through music, and to educate and inform future generations. Their sound is passionate and acoustic, with soaring harmonies, laments and songs of inspiration. Their idea is not that different from the Buena Vista Social Club, where Cuban veterans have reinvigorated songs of their country’s past; but this time it is from the hills behind Timor-Leste enemy lines.
