Author and interpreter, João Afonso had a first moment of visibility when, with José Mário Branco and Amélia Muge, he presented the project “Maio Maduro Maio”, with versions of songs by Zeca Afonso, his uncle. He made his solo debut with the albuns “Missangas” (1997), followed by “Barco Voador” (1999), “Zanzibar” (2002), “Outra Vida” (2006), “Um Redondo Vocábulo” “Sangue Bom” (2014), this one with music of his own for unpublished poems by Mia Couto and José Eduardo Agualusa. In 2018, in addition to participating in the Eurovision Song Contest, he’s preparing a new album from the work of José Afonso.
