The protagonists of this novelty will be the Portuguese singer Lina, «known for her amazing interpretations of the repertoire of Amália Rodrigues», and Raül Refree, «one of the most innovative European producers», according to the Loulé Chamber.

«The duo presents in Loulé what is a new and revolutionary perspective on Fado, well suited to the musical DNA of the MED Festival», describes the municipality.

This project, released globally by Glitterbeat Records, received several awards, namely the I Carlos do Carmo Award, from the Preis Der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik – German Critics Award and the Prix de L'Académie Charles Cros (France) – Coup de Coeur 2020.

It was also number 1 in the World Music Charts Europe as “Disc of the year 2020” and in the “Best Portuguese albums 2020”, No Sólo Fado.

The ticket is free entry, but limited to the capacity of the room, for holders of MED Festival tickets (Festival Ticket, Daily Ticket or Family Ticket). For the rest of the public, the ticket costs 5 euros.
