Benvindo Barros takes the stage at Teatro Mascarenhas Gregório, in Silves, on April 29, at 21 pm, where he presents his project “Cantar Cabo Verde”, in a concert that marks his 00-year career. Admission is free.
It will thus be an evening marked by Cape Verdean sounds and rhythms – with the special participation of a group of batucadeiras – with originals about the traditions and popular music of that country revisited by this author, composer and lyricist.
The Municipality of Silves invites everyone to experience April in Silves, from April 21st to May 6th, during which time a wide range of activities are proposed for all ages, with theatre, music, poetry, multimedia and cinema.
According to Câmara de Silves, the concert with João Pedro Pais and the show by Paulo de Carvalho “Voz e Piano”, with the virtuous Cuban pianist Victor Zamora, stand out as two of the highlights of these celebrations.
Benvindo Barros is from Cape Verde, where he was born in 1953. He has lived in Portugal since 1971.
He attended the Duarte Costa School, in Lisbon, where he started learning the guitar, in 1972. In Porto, he had the opportunity to learn the piano with Professor Olívia, where he deepened his knowledge in terms of reading musical scores and theory. .
In 1997 he released his first album, entitled “Thanks to God”; which followed, in 2005, “Fabateira”, this time in the Algarve. In 2020 he released my most recent album “Luar di Esperança”.
Benvindo Barros is preparing to release his next album, predictably next summer.
