Fernanda Paulo
Fernanda Paulo is a Portuguese singer and actress. Departing from Fado and its themes, Fernanda Paulo presents theatre and music shows, marked by the multidisciplinary fusion of styles, seeking new paths, without disregarding tradition. Her latest album “Ar de Fado” shows the spirit of the traditional fado. We can find the Portuguese “saudade” and a lot of other strong feelings in her voice.

Francisco Pellegrini
The pianist and composer Francisco Pellegrini was born in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Started his musical studies at the age of 8, and with 14 began to play professionally. Worked with renowned artists as Milton Nascimento, Roberto Menescal, Sérgio Ricardo and Maria Gadú. In 2011 released his first album, ‘Três’, and three years later his second one, ‘Piano solo’, with compliments by Egberto Gismonti and Stefano Bollani.
