Cátia Alhandra is a unique singer. She has in her voice the poetic sensitivity, colors and intense flavors of the Portuguese Soul. From Fado and traditional Portuguese music to the passion and influence of ancestral singing linked to Arab and Mediterranean music, her different musical roots make her interpretation unique and make Cátia a multifaceted singer with a vibrant presence and an intense performance, full of truth, grit and soul. In this new concert, she is accompanied by musicians from different artistic influences, which results in a communion and fusion of diverse sensibilities and languages, with unexpected formations, sound contrasts and a great diversity of environments. The program mainly consists of original themes by composers from the Algarve, themes inspired by the great poetesses, as well as recreations of fado and traditional Portuguese and Mediterranean music. The poetic and emotive density of the song and words combined with the intention and deep truth of the interpretation and delivery on stage. Musicians: Guitar – Zé Miguel Vieira/ arrangements Bass – Gabriel Costa Tiago Rêgo – Mediterranean Percussion and Hangdrum
Presentation of the new Plasticine album – “The Most Beautiful Skies”. Through a musical tapestry composed of progressive rock, funk, jazz and soul, the band takes us on a sound journey that travels through the skies of the Maghreb, continuing across Africa, passing through the Caribbean, stopping in Latin America, flying over the East and landing in Portugal. “Afrobeat, soul, funk, jazz and the wider world in one danceable package. This band seethes with a horn section, guitars and keyboards and a drum/percussion base to support it all. No gimmicks or gimmicks, just pulsating music from a band with an energy transmitted straight from the stage to the audience” – World Music Central on Plasticine’s concert at Festival Med 2022. “Perhaps the best funk orchestra in Portugal” – Nuno Rogeiro (SIC Notícias)
XVº ROCK NA RIBEIRA 2023 Next June 9th at the Pechão Sports Area – parish of Olhão
Cantaloupe Café, in Mercados de Olhão, is pleased to announce that it will present, on the 4th of June, Sunday, at 6.45 pm, a show with: Ze Eduardo Trio Formed over a year ago, this trio quickly rose to not only local but also national notoriety, having already performed at the Hot Club de Portugal as well as at the Loulé Jazz Festival, among others, including several performances at Cantaloupe. Various circumstances (which the pandemic is no stranger to) allowed for the unlikely coming together of these three musicians who were more than qualified for the difficult task of making a jazz trio sound. Pianist Simon Seidl and drummer Marcelo Araújo accepted the challenge proposed by veteran bassist Zé Eduardo and the result is in plain sight. In 2023, among other musical adventures, it will be the resident trio at Cantaloupe Jazz Café where it will present, at the beginning of each month, an original and diversified program. Reservations by tel.: 289 704 397 During live music shows, for the 1st consumption, an increase of €8.00 (eight euros) is applied for each consumer.
