Albaluna reveal a peculiar and versatile concept with different approaches depending on the context of the show. The Iberian Peninsula was the cradle of a fusion between the Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures. Following that cultural lineage, Albaluna present an elegant chamber concert, which brings both oriental and occidental influences together, appropriate for places of worship (churches, synagogues, mosques), museums, theatres, among others.
Between 2010 and the present year Albaluna have released three full-length albums and two EPs: D’Antes (2010), Marca Antiga (2012), Alvorada da Lua (2014), Nau dos Corvos (2016), and Nau dos Corvos – Lado B (2017). The album tours reached multiple countries, including Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Lithuania, India, and, obviously, Portugal.
The band released the single Gargull in January 2019, marking the band's new era and anticipating a new original record.
