The Cine-Teatro Louletano marks World Music Day, October 1st (Tuesday), with an absolute premiere, in a commission to the prestigious Brazilian musician Paulinho Lemos, who will perform at the Solar da Música Nova Auditorium, in Loulé, for the 9:30 pm, the unprecedented show “Missing Brazil in Portugal”. Lemos is accompanied by a luxury trio in instrumental formation, composed by Adriano Alves “Dinga” on bass, Vasco Ramalho – professor at the Loulé Conservatory of Music – on marimba and Ricardo Martins on Portuguese guitar, joined by singer Natália Boechat .
For this very special day, where music is celebrated all over the world, and the organization of the event is imbued with a spirit of cultural sharing and artistic communion around a common matrix (the Portuguese language), the renowned and experienced musician. Paulinho Lemos, resident in the Algarve, was challenged to revisit and reinvent great Portuguese songs, associated with notable figures such as Amália Rodrigues, Carlos Paredes, Jose Afonso, Dulce Pontes, Carlos do Carmo, Francisco Jose, Simone, among others. And we challenged Lemos to invite musicians with a strong connection to Loulé for the instrumental formation to present on this unique night.
