After Moonspell, on Friday was the turn of the group D.A.M.A to take the stage in the festivities of Festival F, in Faro
Between the opening night, with Diogo Piçarra, and the closing night, with Miguel Araújo, there is humor with César Mourão, Herman José and Salvador Martinha; magic with Luís de Matos; and lots of music: from the pops of Aurea, Agir, D.A.M.A and Fernando Daniel, to the heavy metal of the Moonspell or the hip-hop of Piruka, passing by the special shows, in duet, by Tiago Nacarato & Bárbara Tinoco and Carolina Deslandes & Jimmy P, until the concerts of António Zambujo, Os Quatro e Meia, Pedro Abrunhosa, Sérgio Godinho, The Black Mamba and Xutos & Pontapés, these 20 shows celebrate the reunion between the public and the artists, with their eyes set on the F of Future.
The Portuguese group has 3 studio albums released and will launch the fourth this year and won several national and international awards such as Band of the Year and Best Album of the Year at the Trend Music Awards, and Best Music at the Golden Globes. In 2017, their concert at MEO Marés Vivas 2016 won the Best Live Performance – Portuguese and Spanish at the Iberian Festival Awards 2017, and in 2018, the music video of “Era Eu” won the first prize at the Los Angeles Music Video Awards in the category “Best Feel Good Video” and the public award “People’s Choice”.
D.A.M.A. have been conquering the national stages wherever they go standing out for their contagious songs, empathy with the public, and energy in the live performances. Their numerous presentations, the high rotation of their themes on national radio stations, as well as the repercussion of online videos, contributed to increase the notoriety of the group that has been gaining more and more fans all over the country and abroad.
The concert started as usual around 10 pm, at Largo da Sé, with the song “Às Vezes” and the repertoire consisted of several hits by the band involving all their albums and also songs from the new album that will come out this year.
“Era Eu”, “Não Dá”, “Agora É Tarde”, “Nasty”, “Luísa”, “Tempo Pra Quê”, “Pensa Bem” and “Não Faço Questão” were some of the songs heard during the concert, and the band also presented the song “Ela“, which is part of the album that will come out in October this year.
After a warm and giant applause from the audience, D.A.M.A returned to the stage for the encore with “O Que Lá Vai Lá Vai” and their great success of 2014 “Balada do Desajeitado”.
The following week we will have Fernando Daniel opening, Xutos & Pontapés, Agir and The Black Mamba. Then it will be the turn of Sérgio Godinho, Carolina Deslandes & Jimmy P, Luís de Matos and António Zambujo.
In the last week of Festival F, it will be the turn of Salvador Martinha, Tiago Nacarato & Bárbara Tinoco, Piruka and Miguel Araújo to take the stage.
On ‘Noites F’, the 20 shows that symbolically celebrate Festival F are taking place at Largo da Sé, which traditionally hosts the Sé Stage, with the remaining stages and spaces of the festival, Quintalão, Museum, Ria, Fábrica, Formosa, Sé cloisters, among others, waiting for 2021 to start receiving music, fine arts, workshops, new circus, theater, humor, and gatherings, in a rich and diversified program that has continued to grow over 6 editions.
The ‘Noites F’ seek to help to keep the spirit of Festival F alive, at a time when artists and the Portuguese most need culture and entertainment to face the challenges brought by the pandemic positively and with hope. ‘Noites F’ is an initiative of the Municipality of Faro, the Municipal Theater of Faro, S.M., Ambifaro, and the producer Sons em Trânsito.
