If you’ve ever traveled to the sunny Algarve, in the south of Portugal, you might have had a chance to see the bustling Live Music scene they’ve got going on, with thousands of bars catering to the whopping 22 million tourists who visit it annually. We caught up with The Guinness Brothers, Colm and Roddy. They have both been playing different genres of music from a very young age, in various bands. Colm has been playing professionally from the age of 16, and Roddy from the age of 18. Music has taken this duo around the world, having played all over Europe, America and even Asia. Roddy tells us how the band got started, “Funny story, I met Colm when I was 17, after coming back from the Netherlands, while recording a video with a friend in Old town Albufeira, turns out Colm had a company that needed videographers, and I had a camera. So after a couple of beers and some talking I was hired and working for a company that worked with musicians from all over the world.” “After a while I became Colm’s “Roadie”, and eventually weaseled my way into playing guitar with him at one of […]

It is a solo for two performers, with their own scores, in a state of search and surrender to movement and “happening”. “You don’t get there or when, or because you want to, it happens.” – Amália Rodrigues In 1962, three revolutionary events, three moments of cleavage transformed the way of understanding pop music, dance and fado. In Liverpool, the explosion of the Beatles begins, with “Love of the Loved” being one of the band’s first songs. In New York, at the Judson Memorial Church, a group of creators gathered, changing the path of dance, among them Yvonne Rainer, who would later create Trio A, an important critical milestone in the history of contemporary dance, and in Lisbon Amália Rodrigues records “Busto”, in an unlikely partnership with Alain Oulman, from which a new fado is born. Without resorting to direct references that build a coherent and descriptive discourse, this creation finds in Amália the integrity and respect, the intensity and restraint that we seek in Dance, in a dramaturgical path punctuated by the writing of Gonçalo M Tavares (Livro da Dança), by unique quotes from Amália and by original solo piano songs by 6 composers. ARTISTIC FACTS Dramaturgical path, creation, […]
