Opening concert | 25 February – Pedro Andrea Quartet | Municipal Auditorium of Mirandela
The second edition of the Festival Magos da Guitarra is back after its premiere in 2022. The Festival will take place from February 25th with the pre-opening concert by award-winning Spanish guitarist Pedro Andrea. The musician has already collaborated with names like Carlos Santana, and Luz Casal, among others.
The Festival continues during the month of March in various locations in the Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro regions. Guitarists who excel in multiple musical areas will be present, such as fingerstyle, blues, jazz, and flamenco.
The guitarists/formations Tanausú Luís are already confirmed – a pioneering musical project in Spain that is a fusion of fingerstyle, an emerging genre that intends to transform a simple instrument into a rock band; Jon Gomm, English singer-songwriter and guitarist who uses the guitar to create drum sounds, bass lines, and melodies. His songs draw on a range of influences and styles, including blues, soul, rock, and even metal; Fernando Deghi, is considered one of the most prestigious viola musicians in Brazil and internationally. His artistic trajectory adds up to 40 years dedicated to music divided into two periods: concert guitar from 1977 to 1996 and concert viola from 1989 to date, where he is one of the great references in the field of composition, innovation, and methodologies;
ArtDanDuo, that is, Artur Caldeira and Daniel Paredes, a duo of classical guitar virtuosos, but whose repertoire includes other sounds: from classical music, fado, jazz, among others; Eduardo Trassierra, holder of the most important flamenco guitar awards, presents a performance full of musicality and rhythm, all with irrepressible flamenco music, spilling notes on stage to create a mixture of emotions and electrifying moments, passing through moments of improvisation of the purest jazz; Rui Fernandes Quartet, a project with a unique format in the world, which brings together instruments such as double bass, piano, and percussion to the Amaranthine viola in a quartet formed by musicians of excellence: Rui Fernandes (amarantine viola), Pedro Neves (piano), Miguel Ângelo (double bass) and Ricardo Coelho (percussion).
The Festival, organized by De Mi Para Si, has as its starting point the creation and presentation of cultural projects that make a difference and that present the public with new musical emotions and the existence of this broad cultural manifestation that combines all the characteristics and specificities of the new world of guitar.
Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro thus have a festival that also promotes their territory as a whole and provides a differentiating cultural initiative.
