Porto Covo

Monsieur Doumani

Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

Perhaps because they started out as street musicians, the members of Monsieur Doumani were able to do so much with so little. Demettris Yiasemides, Angelos Ionas and Antonis Antoniou met in 2011 in Nicosia at a party with only a tzouras (a musical instrument related to the bouzouki), a guitar and a trombone (sometimes also using other woodwind instruments). Minimal accompaniment to the beautiful singing in the Greek Cypriot dialect. In addition to the island's folklore, enriched with new arrangements, rhythms and sounds, they present original pieces, where the themes concern the present and the recent past of the country; the financial crisis, environmental disasters and a corrupt political system.

The Como Mamas


Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

Since sisters Angela Taylor and Della Daniels were children, they have been singing with their friend Ester Mae Smith at Mt. Mariah Baptist Church in Como, a small town south of Memphis. In 2006, Daptone Records went to the church to make recordings for a gospel compilation. This trio made the strongest impression and the experience resulted in their own ‘a capella’ album. In 2015, they left Mississippi for the first time and went to New York, where they shone at the legendary Apollo Theatre and recorded the album "Move Upstairs", where they were (as they will be at FMM), accompanied by a band, to praise God even more powerfully and energetically.

Karina Buhr (c) Daryan Dornelles


Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

Although with an irreverent urban rocker image, Karina Buhr has deep roots in Brazil’s north-eastern region. Born in Salvador, she moved to Recife at the age of 8 where she started singing and playing in Maracatu bands in 1992, starting her intense career as a singer, composer, percussionist, poet, chronicler, actress and illustrator. Living in São Paulo since 2003, she only released her first solo album in 2010. The second album was released in 2011 and the third, "Selvática" in 2015. Energised by rock, her music is a vehicle for lyrics that share personal opinions, with an deep desire to advocate the causes that she believes in, such as women’s rights and dignity.

Fogo Fogo

FOGO FOGO (Portugal)

Porto Covo - Largo Marquês de Pombal

Fogo Fogo is a Portuguese homage to Cape Verdean rhythms. It was born in Casa Independente, a cultural space in the heart of the Intendente district, one of Lisbons districts that is a melting pot and is a key scene of this new movement. The band consists of five experienced musicians: João Gomes (keyboards), Francisco Rebelo (bass), Márcio Silva (drums), David Pessoa and Danilo Lopes (guitar and voice). The focus of the project is the spirit and melodic and rhythmic found in funaná, the most festive of Cape Verdean musical styles, which, after the kuduro, looks likely to be the next rhythm from Portuguese-speaking Africa that will conquer the world. The classics, from Bitori to Tubarões, inspire the dance.
