As Marias (dancing performance)
Dancing Performance - "Let's balhar Bahja?"
“The Marias” is a group of female warriors. They are between 65 and 84 years old. They are mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers. They left their families and their countries of origin, Cape Verde and Angola or other regions of Portugal, to come and seek for better conditions of living near to Lisbon. All their lives they’ve worked, cared, and fought. Very much.
Their performance was developed within the project “Xinti Bem! – Promotion of Welfare” promoted by the “Sociedade Musical Simpatia e Gratidão” and AMURT Portugal.

FLOW, band members:
Jishnu (guitarra e voz)
AIÊ, in Yoruba, means the world of the living. The side of multisensory reality, where life is manifested by palpability, where sound waves are created and propagated. It is the world where physical encounters take place. Where the magic of improvisation is celebrated, under the laws of the impermanence of matter. In this vibration meet Edgar Valente [PT] and Luiz Gabriel Lopes [BR], for a generous multicultural collaboration.

Lusitanas is the new songwriting project of the singer-songwriter Mariana Root, that invokes her Portuguese roots, celebrating the land of the light “Lusitana”: “what we have been and how we recreate ourselves”.
