Alentejo Cantado

12.AUG.2016 | 14:00 | MPAGDP STAGE

Alentejo is synonymous with “cante”, the traditional “a cappella” song. Yet, in a region with such vast horizons, many other influences intertwine. Here, the “viola campaniça”, a regional instrument, joins the voices, bringing back unique soundscapes. Alentejo Cantado’s repertoire invokes past traditions linked to both hard working days and community dances where young romances began and ended.
