August 16 – Mirage: Marta Rodrigues Quinteto
The quintet by Marta Rodrigues presents original music that brings together, for the most part, themes where the voice takes on an instrumental role, as well as songs with lyrics in Portuguese and English. The compositions evoke different environments, through a deep exploration of textures and timbres, as well as elements of free improvisation. The quintet is composed of Marta Rodrigues (vocals), Duarte Ventura (vibraphone), Luís Lélis (piano), Gonçalo Naia (double bass) and João Sousa (drums).
August 17 – LANA GASPARØTTI
Combining the acoustic and digital world in real time, LANA GASPARØTTI sings, plays synthesizer keyboards and releases samples, accompanied by Pedro Barroso on electric bass and Sebastião Bergmann on drums, musicians with whom she has already worked on other projects and who were part of her career. as an instrumentalist. The result is a unique sound, which makes each concert a vibrant experience, between jazz experimentalism and EDM (Electronic Dance Music).
