Porto Covo

António Chainho e André Baptista


Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

Songlines magazine nominated him amongst the 50 most influential musicians of world music. Fado has made him one of the most acclaimed masters of Portuguese guitar. With an endless curiosity, he has played with the greatest Fado musicians, but also with K.D. Lang, José Carreras and Paco de Lucía. He is a musician of universal appeal, who happened to be born just 40 km away from here, in S. Francisco da Serra. António Chainho, in this double concert, will share the stage with André Baptista, a Fado musician from Sines. André is one of the most promising voices of the Portuguese Fado. He was granted the Revelation award in 2014 by Amália Rodrigues Foundation. A meeting of two generations of musicians from the Alentejo Coast.

Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

Energy is what matters. Energy that the artist carries inside and energy the audience sends back to him. This is how Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, a percussionist born in Isfahan, Iran, but based in Germany, sees it. For him, a concert is always “the pursuit of a shared emotional space”. Without a musical sheet, nor a set list, Mohammad places his hands on the drums – tonbak and daf – looks at the audience and his journey starts. An adventure through seldom explored rhythms, led by “two hands that seems like six”. His new album, “Transformation” may (or may not) serve as a guide.

Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

The daughter of Haitian parents, she was born in New York and raised in New Jersey. She feels like an American, but a part of herself has never recognised the place where she lived. The move to New Orleans in 2010 was like returning to her grandparents’ home. She discovered familiar names in cemeteries. She ate rice and beans like the ones she ate at home. Her second album is inspired by a book on Haitian refugees who used to arrive on boats to the US coast in the Nineties. These stories gave rise to other stories about people who leave their homeland searching for a better life. She sings in English, French and Haitian Creole - accompanied by guitar, banjo and cello.



Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

The musician’s toil is that of a traveller. The tours in Peru provided Bareto musicians with the privilege of getting to know their country, but also the responsibility of telling what they see: social inequality, racism, urban insecurity, macroeconomic growth that is not a real factor of change for people. Thus, by listening to the other side of the mix that Bareto orchestra's music contains - cumbia, salsa, merengue, reggae, dub - one needs to observe the shadows that their music unveils. The sound is tropical and hallucinogenic: A Peruvian version of cumbia, with salsa, merengue, reggae, dub and psychedelia. A hot and dense music like the jungle, with increasingly intimate and electronic incursions.
