Salgado, dedicato al fotografo, è un brano estratto dall'ultimo album Miranda! che la band Altre di B descrive così: “I fusi orari, come i confini, sono linee arbitrarie. Tratti invisibili, convenzionali, talvolta limiti ingiustificati. Tutta la colossale opera fotografica di Sebastião Salgado, uno dei più grandi fotodocumentaristi viventi, si è sempre interessata alla dimostrazione di questa tesi. Dalle masse migratorie, alle guerre di confine, Salgado ha narrato le origini e gli sviluppi dell’umanità. Con un celebre bianco e nero che lo ha reso uno dei più profondi testimoni del nostro tempo. Ci siamo dipinti il volto di bianco e nero per celebrare visivamente tutto ciò, l’illogica logica dei confini, la potenza della fotografia di Salgado." L'album Miranda! è un omaggio a Quirico Filopanti, l'inventore dei fusi orari.

He was the first Emperor who gave Ethiopia the chance to modernize while respecting its traditions. In a similar way, the Atse Tewodros Project intends to respect traditional Ethiopian music while opening it up to dialogue and exchange.
