In this version of the band, Albaluna present themselves as a fusion band, performing with as many antique instruments from various parts of the world as contemporary instruments. The six musicians reveal an energetic show, full of distinct musical aromas, inspired by the music of the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cultures, alongside North European folk, medieval music, and progressive rock.
The ambiance of this intense onstage act is fuelled by the band’s own creativity and unending energy, along with the profound intimacy and introspection offered by some more peaceful moments. The performances may vary between an acoustic and intimate version, suitable for theatres and concert halls; and an otherwise electric show, appropriate for folk, rock, or generalist music festivals.
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.
