“Faces do Acordeão” is a project created in the ambit of the Garvefole Accordion Association’s first anniversary. A show created around the accordion takes place on the stage, with the participation of several young laureates in national and international competitions. This musical moment promises a lot of irreverence, virtuosity and emotion, with a new approach to immortal themes, where the phonic brilliance of the accordion, combined with the beauty of the sounds of the classical guitar, violin, double bass, percussions and voices, in an orchestral and captivating environment, predominates.
The prestigious teacher and accordionist Nelson Conceição signs the artistic direction for this concert. Originally from Bordeira, a place rich in great accordionists, the musician has had an inspired and dynamic journey from his childhood to the present, embracing a notorious diversity of genres that allows a symbiosis between ancestors and contemporaries through the exploration of relations between fado and tango, corridinho and classical music, or traditions / charolas and jazz manouche / gipsy.
