“Azorean Torpor” — an expression coined by two English brothers who visited the Azores in the 19th century — is described as a feeling of near-fading and an accidental inertia, which is inherent to the condition of being an Azorean. Márcio Laranjeira (co-founder of the Lovers & Lollypops label and one of those responsible for the existence of this festival in the middle of the Atlantic) was also not immune to this feeling:

«In the beginning, I felt uncomfortable with the island’s rhythm. I arrived in the Azores and everyone was very relaxed. When it comes to the technical staff, sometimes I really despaired. That is until one day, in a stressful situation, someone from the technical staff, very calmly, said to me: “Hey buddy, if you run too fast, you’ll end up in the sea.”. Right away, I understood what he meant by that. It helped me adapt my rhythm and appreciate this characteristic of the Azores. That is, things end up happening, in their own time, but they happen.»
