Lusitanian Ghosts – Revamping Traditions

There are traditions that are worth to be kept for longer than the usual human life span. For this to happen there is a need for this tradition to be passed through generations while reinventing itself in a way that adapts to the new tastes as well as keeping its origins. And this is a mission that not many can do as well as the Lusitanian Ghosts, that picked up some of the best string instruments from the ancient Portuguese traditions, and gave their own interpretation to them while always keeping the Folk-Pop vibes in their music. It’s one of

Os Capitão a ouvir Zarco e Vice-Versa

Os Capitão a ouvir Zarco e Vice-Versa TAVA NUM BAR A OUVIR UM SOM! TAVA NUM BAR A OUVIR UM SOM! E qual bar que não os Loucos e Sonhadores, decerto inspiradores desta bela ode à vida do maratonista de bares do bairro que vive dentro de nós a cada noite que decidimos viver a boémia. Pois não conheço melhores instrumentalistas para pintar tão bonita música que os descobridores psicadélicos Zarco. Aventureiros por natureza tem vindo a fazer jus à música tocada por amor, com muita vida de Rock & Roll à mistura que em palco atinge a sua expressão

Impulso Fest – A Primazia da Qualidade no dia 23 de Maio

Numa primeira tentativa que muitos anunciaram que poderia ser única, o que já nos foi desmentido pela organização, que afirma que a expetativa e esperança de repetir esta bonita experiência em anos futuros é imensa, as Calda da Rainha demonstraram que sabem receber bem, num local íntimo e oferecer a melhor qualidade de som possível para o espaço. Foi com a coordenação de dois docentes, Nuno Monteiro e Tiago Sábio que os estudantes da Escola de Som Arte e Design das Caldas da Rainha edificou aquele que foi um festival único. O centro da Juventude das Caldas da Rainha foi

Entrevistámos o Impulso!

Nuno Monteiro, ex-aluno e agora docente da ESAD, no curso de Som e Imagem e técnico de som de muitos artistas que tocam nas  nossas playlists diariamente, teve a simpatia de falar comigo e explicar como aconteceu este Festival ao qual teremos o prazer de assistir. A razão de existência é nobre! No concelho das Caldas da Rainha há mais de 2000 jovens que não tiveram até agora um evento de divulgação musical perto de casa e Nuno acredita que para além destes muitos mais, como nós, irão visitar e conhecer pela primeira vez este concelho encantador! Para além disso,

Nick Suave: “I Speak Rock & Roll”

Depois de um ótimo almoço no “Café com Calma” em Marvila, onde a carteira não sofre nada, foi nessa mesma pérola lisboeta que me sentei na esplanada a tomar café com Nick Suave: Comecei por lhe chamar “Rei da Margem Sul”, ao que respondeu “Qual Rei?! A Margem Sul não é uma monarquia”. E foi com este tom de humildade que se estendeu a entrevista. Nick, também conhecido até completar o 4ºano de escolaridade por Carlos Ramos, é um daqueles verdadeiros amantes e difusores do Rock&Roll. Nesse mundo é mais conhecido por Nick Nicotine, apesar de ter começado a fumar

Erlend Oye: Grazie Amico!!

His music tastes like those breakfasts in Summer when one is in vacations and the only worries are “Which beach are we going today?”. His band is made up of three really relaxed fellas from Sicily, where he has been living for the last six years in Syracuse with his mother. And He is a character. Erlend has his Italian on point and it was in this beautiful language that he used for more than half of the show. As they entered the stage we knew we were in for a great one and that the only problem would be

Our Favorite Jazz Festival in Europe – Our Top 3 for 2018 Edition

Half of Portugal is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and that is without a doubt its better half. However among all those tiny fisherman villages spread out along coastline, it is in Cascais that in July you will find our Favourite Jazz Festival in Europe. Older than 750 years old, this town has been connected to this festival since its early beginnings although in the last years it has been way less involved to the detriment of Oeiras. However, it is in Cascais that EDP Cool Jazz Fest belongs between the Hipódromo Manuel Possolo and Parque Marechal Carmona. The first
