After sunset and the performance of the group Toda a Gente, it will be the turn of a name known to the Portuguese to “reconquer” the Guimarães public. From 10 pm onwards, Tiago Nacarato will demonstrate all his talent and determination, which have made him one of the most complete singers in current Portuguese music, in an intimate concert, but one that promises great furore.
