In addition to the usual regulars, hundreds of tourists of the most varied nationalities are attracted every Sunday by the democratic and contagious joy of samba. It is estimated that, in the last 5 years, more than 50 thousand people have participated in the most famous samba circle in the capital. In addition to organizing its own concerts, the group helps move the city’s cultural scene through the creation and coordination of projects such as the carnival block, Lisbloco, and the Festival Viva o Samba Lisboa. These events help materialize the main objective of the group, which is to promote an atmosphere of cultural inclusion and preservation of the samba culture.

Nuno Lanhoso, a 30-year-old singer-songwriter from Porto, soon discovered his fascination for music and writing on an old piano at his grandparents’ house. Later, aged 14, he turned his attention to the guitar and has never stopped since. Passionate about both instruments, he seeks to see beauty and poetry in the simplicity of everyday life and transcribe it into songs, trying to make each word have a purpose and each phrase an intention. Inspired by several national and international artists, from Abrunhosa and Bettencourt to John Mayer, he goes in search of the perfect melody and phrase, hoping deep down that he will never find it. He moved to Barcelona at the age of 18 to study medicine and it was in that city that he started playing live, struggling to overcome the shyness that had always dominated him. After finishing the course he was placed in the Algarve to do the common year, always reconciling with the life of a musician in bars and hotels. Six months later, aged 28, he took a break from the hospital and has been making a living out of music ever since, taking the craft of writing and songwriting ever more seriously. In 2022 he edited his debut album: “Mitos e Nicolaus”. And now he hopes to show this repertoire to all those who pass by Palco Nortada, on June 29th.
Versatility, irreverence, uniqueness and one hit after another – this is how the Jovem Dionísio project has conquered Brazil with a modern language and a sound that wanders between pop, electronica and rap. They define themselves as a kind of “boteco boy band”. The group was born and raised in Curitiba, with music that hits the soul of a loyal and growing audience. This can be noticed in the huge queues for the dressing room with fans tattooed with the car seat, the group’s trademark, or even with striking verses of the songs. Even isolated, the group was the company of many people during the pandemic and saw the numbers grow absurdly during this very complicated period. The 20 thousand monthly listeners on Spotify alone have already become more than 6 million after the release of the first album: “Acorda, Pedrinho”. The title track already exceeds 25 million plays on this platform and the video already has over 16 million views on YouTube. The track won Tik Tok, was a trending topic on Twitter and reached the top of the most viral list in the world and the most played in Brazil. As can be seen, the numbers achieved on digital platforms are impressive, but save the best for the stage, with impactful and truly unforgettable performances. These guys once again bring to Portugal all the success of “Acorda, Pedrinho”. Jovem Doinísio will perform on June 30th, at Palco Nortada.

And in 2023, after her maternity leave, Roberta Sá returns to the stage with the release of “Sambasá – Ao Vivo”.
