The Valentine’s Day Music Festival returns in 2023 and will visit the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium, in Lagoa. February is the month of love, romance and sharing and it also marks the return of the festival that celebrates all these feelings with the best soundtrack. The Montepio à Vezes o Amor Festival is back for its 9th edition and on the 11th of February, at 9 pm, the concert of “SYRO” will be presented in Lagoa, which makes its debut at this Festival.
Synopsis: SYRO is the artistic name of Diogo Lopes who was born in Barreiro on February 23, 1995, a young man who since the age of 12 has been connected to the music world, as a drummer, having integrated several projects. Later he graduated in jazz and modern music, was part of the band Caelum, and today he assumes himself as a singer, author and producer of pop music.
His musical roots were strongly marked by the musical taste passed on to him by his father, more focused on the international rock scene, with the band Genesis – Phil Collins, a great reference as a drummer – perhaps one of the most relevant projects for his career as a instrumentalist. He was part of several projects as a drummer, having been a co-founder of the Portuguese band CAELUM [with a record contract with Sony Music Portugal] where he stepped on some of the biggest national stages. Enriching his experience as a musician, he decided that the time had come to get his individual space of expression, thus presenting himself solo as SYRO.
He also developed the songwriter component, as he gained experience in the studio, having even written themes for some renowned national artists. The song “Deixa Passar” appears in an attempt to solve periods of greater tension for the artist, where inspiration, hand in hand with creativity, led him to realize that “it seems that we are facing the end of the world, full of problems and constraints, naturally everything passes, everything becomes lighter”, comments the artist. After signing for the RedMojo collective, which produced and released the theme, the artist now starts with his first single. The song is already available on all digital platforms and is part of the soundtrack of the new TVI soap opera – “Valor da Vida”.
