Shows take place on Ilha da Culatra, Faro and Fortaleza de Sagres.
The Cycle of Concerts at Sunset, organized by ArQuente, is back, for three consecutive weekends, with another good dose of alternative/indie pop music.
The concerts take place on Fridays, at 6:30 pm, in Largo da Igreja, on Ilha da Culatra, on Saturdays, at 7:00 pm, at Galeria Arco, in Faro, and on Sundays, at 6:00 pm, in the Fortress of Sagres, the latter through the support of the DiVaM program, of the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve.
The first guest, for the 2022 edition, is Bia Maria, who will perform on September 9, 10 and 11. Beatriz Pereira, born and raised in Ourém, is the patron saint of the act of “writing”. On a precipice between Beatriz and Maria, her pen unfolds a diary of colors, textures and unpleasantness. She summons melodies from fado, pop, bossa nova and popular singing, to condense them into a sound that is both down-to-earth and dreamy. After Mal Me Queres, Bem Te Quero and Tradição, she returns to her first musical home, the piano, for her third EP ‘Do Roberto’.
The following weekend (September 16, 17 and 18) she belongs to Bandua, a collaborative project between Tempura the Purple Boy and Edgar Valente. Bandua takes the popular songbook of the Beira Baixa region and faces it with an electronic folk reinterpretation in the style of Berlin downtempo. Conceived by Portuguese-Brazilian musician and producer Tempura the Purple Boy and with the participation of Portuguese singer and musician Edgar Valente, Bandua represents the first time that these sounds, poems and songs are transformed into a melancholic Portuguese-language electronic pop record.
The closing of this year’s concert cycle is in charge of the Algarve singer-songwriter Mateus Verde, who has concerts at dusk on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of September.
With his voice, accompanied by the electric guitar, Mateus Verde creates contemplative and intimate music inspired by nature and its mysteries. His themes range from a “Folk” atmosphere to atmospheric and dreamy landscapes, always exploring a mysterious and sometimes esoteric imagery. He released his first EP “Esteva” at the end of 2016 and his first album “Feiticeira” in the summer of 2020.
The Concerts at Sunset have the support of the Municipality of Faro, the Union of Parishes of Faro and the Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve, through the program DiVaM – Dissemination and Enhancement of Monuments. In addition, it has a partnership with the Culatra Island Residents Association and the support of the Tertúlia Algarvia restaurant and the insurance company João Marques Seguros.
As communication partners, ArQuente and Concertos ao Entardecer count on Sul Informação, RUA FM – Rádio Universitária do Algarve, the Cultugarve project and ConecTV.
