The cycle “O Longe é Aqui”, which challenges, through the commission, musicians / projects from the region to present unpublished concerts with renowned musicians from the national scene, constitutes one of the central vectors of Cineteatro’s programming since 2016, having already been held 15 shows under this motto.
In 2020, to revisit the values of the carnation revolution, two names join this musical cycle: Jorge Palma opened it in May 2016, at the time with the Banda Filarmónica Artistas de Minerva; and the Loulé Jazz Trio shared the stage with Pedro Abrunhosa in a memorable concert in May 2017. Now Palma joins the Trio to, in a jazz approach, celebrate World Music Day by reinventing great songs by composers and performers that marked the history of the socially committed song.
Composed by João Pedro Coelho (piano), António Quintino (double bass) and João Pereira (drums), TRIO DE JAZZ DE LOULÉ premiered in July 2016 at the end of the 21st Loulé Jazz Festival, and was formed at within the scope of an initiative launched by the Municipality of Loulé at the level of its cultural policy, this after a selection, among several applications, whose jury was Mário Laginha, Pedro Moreira and Hugo Alves. The Loulé Jazz Trio is a novelty in the cultural panorama of the Algarve and aims to cement the two decades of work developed in the area of Jazz in Loulé, allowing both the constitution of a regular offer in the area and the presentation of the group in national and international contexts promoting the jazz tradition and cultural dynamics linked to the municipality of Loulé.
