The City Council of Sines organizes the 2021 edition of the exhibition “Maré de Fado”, with eight nights of music, between March 12 and April 3, every Friday and Saturday, to enjoy online and on the radio.
With the artistic direction of Carlos Soares da Silva, the “Maré de Fado” initiative was created in 2017 and aims to recover the legacy of the nights and fado meetings, where amateurs and professionals came together for the pleasure of singing.
In this edition, with 25 programmed names, fado opens up to guest projects with influences from other musical genres and the program for each night is organized around a different theme.
“Maré de Fado” are also the places where it takes place, linked to the local heritage. In 2021, fado passes through the Museum of Sines, the old Railway Station, the Church of Nossa Senhora das Salas and the Largo Marquês de Pombal (Porto Covo).
"This is an initiative in which, at this particularly complex time in the area of culture, we seek to streamline programming through the means we have at our disposal to reach the public, valuing our artists and our traditions. It is a program that combines our intangible heritage to the historic and built heritage, carried out with enormous professionalism and the result of which, I am convinced, will be a positive surprise for the public ", says Nuno Mascarenhas, Mayor of Sines.
