BONS SONS and Materiais Diversos have started, on this edition, a programming partnership benefitting from the synergic cultural potentiation in a close territorial area where both associations act. Taking advantage of the artistic knowledge and development in the musical and performing arts, respectively, this partnership will result in cross programming on both association’s events.
Cantadores de Paris
Autópsia de uma Montagem
In Paris, a group of Cante Alentejano was formed by people who are not Portuguese and do not know the Alentejo region. The question spikes: How can you sing a culture you have no insight of?
After some long travels between Alentejo and Paris to capture dozens of hours of film, Tiago Pereira is sharing the creative act of editing and assembling his new movie. For 50 minutes Tiago will show sequences and ideas for his film due to be released November 2017.
AEPGA is an association for the study and protection of asinine cattle. They’re responsible for the donkey rides across the surroundings of Cem Soldos. These friendly animals, more than packhorses are travel companions. At a moderate step, it is with great ease that you can get acquainted with them and their whims.
Through the wise knowledge of AEPGA (association for the study and protection of asinine cattle) you can get to better know donkeys, asses, mules and hinnies. You will get insight on their differences, characteristics and habits, the way they think and how they act. Not only will you learn how to approach and take care of them, but you will also address the cultural values and nature of the Mirandean plateau, home to the Miranda Donkey (Portuguese species).
A donkey packed with books
A donkey packed with books is an itinerant library with a donkey as an active partner in the cultural dissemination. Well, at least he’s carrying the books. This library brings a story teller with a knack for inspiring words that will make you enter his imaginary world and travel along with words, gestures, sounds and emotions.
Early in the afternoon, youngsters gather around to play as part of an orchestra of traditional instruments. This is an uncanny opportunity to try out a different musical instrument and to feel new dimensions in music with a broader scope, that of an orchestra. Rehearsal is conducted by Pedro Sousa from the music association Canto Firme de Tomar.
Come on drumme
The aim of this workshop is to develop musical creativity and to build percussion instruments from recyclable materials. The drums are divided in sets according to their pitch: low (bass drums), medium (boxes and blocks) and high (shakers and maracas).
Made with the simplest materials such as wood and rope, Helder’s Games are powered by the most accessible energy in the world: yourself. The games, most of medieval inspiration, are built by Helder himself. They have become famous by their remarkable ability to amuse people of all ages.
Here, anyone can show their talent. You just have to sign up daily. BONS SONS lends the stage to solo acts or bands, as well as the technical means, allowing unknowns to perform for a considerable number of people. This stage is a unique opportunity for newcomers to test their projects in front of an audience and agents, but, above all, it’s a way to celebrate music in a happy and relaxed environment. At Palco Garagem music is for everyone, and it might just be you up on that stage.
Music for Kids
The Festival’s mornings are dedicated to the kids and their families, with specific programming at the Armazém. These sessions seek to create playful experiences, raising awareness on music while allowing family moments, where they share and connect through sounds.
Music for Future Moms
A session dedicated to expectant mothers to stimulate, with sounds and music, the baby’s development from the womb. The music can be one of the first contacts with language and communication. The unborn child can feel changes in rhythm, tones and tempo of voice and musical instruments.
