The Tuna Universitária Afonsina de Loulé is a tuna where the elements belonging are exclusively male, thus respecting the old tradition of student troubadour. This project started in mid-November 1999 with some ideas formed by members of TUNAAF – Tuna Académica Dom Afonso III. These ideas were finally implemented in a meeting carried out by five students: Carlos Viegas, Emiliano Silva, Hugo Lopes, João Rodrigues and Júlio Guerreiro. This meeting took place on December 1, 1999, when TUALLE was founded, in one of the most emblematic cafés in the city of Loulé, where the well-known poet Aleixo used to recite his poems, Café Calcinha. From this meeting was born the Great Council, the founding entity of Tuna.
