The concerts will begin with the Cape Verdean musician Carmen Souza together with Theo Pas'cal. This enigmatic singer has been named as one of the new generation singers to continue the successful path of Cesária Évora. Carmen Souza has become a true world music force and one of Europe's most in-demand jazz singers. Her music has a deceptive simplicity, a rare clarity, derived from a unique mix of influences from her Cape Verdean background to jazz and modern soul creating this beautifully vibrant, largely acoustic, accessible hybrid.
Marcio Faraco will be on stage next with his personal style gliding from samba to bossa nova, studded with inflections of jazz. Through his intimate words and rare poetic melancholy, Faraco has carved out a distinguished place for himself in the music world. Entirely lacking in cliché or affectation, his personal brand of Brazilian music is at once delicate and simple, primordial and refined, elegant and meticulous.
Last but not least the night will finish with Carminho. She was born and raised in the midst of Fado and this is why it is as natural to her as breathing. Carminho has being requested by the greatest national stages and also internationally, participating also in the awarded film “Fados” of Carlos Saura. The Portuguese singer is ready to keep spreading the sounds of fado worldwide and in Gibraltar in particular the 23rd June.
