| “A Musica Portuguesa a Gostar Dela Própria” – Portuguese Traditional Music
The “A Música Portuguesa A Gostar Dela Própria Association” [Portuguese Music Loving Itself] has, since 2011, with director Tiago Pereira, created an awareness of the knowledge and importance of an often forgotten living patrimony of oral tradition: Songs, novels, short stories, sacred and profane practices, music, dance and also gastronomy.
The main goal of “A Música Portuguesa A Gostar Dela Própria” is, above all, to collectively alert to the real importance of this work, that, in our view, is fundamental to the future, as it builds a collective memory that can be seen and heard, serving not only the interested public, but also researchers and scholars.
AUGUST 20 | DANCE
