“Incredible Fridays” presents Fred Martins invites João Afonso

February 24th, at 9:30 pm at Cine Incrível, in Almada

The Brazilian singer-songwriter and guitarist Fred Martins chose to open the section “Incredible Fridays”, on the 24th of February, one of the main authors/performers of Portuguese music: João Afonso.

The two musicians have been accomplices for several years and have shared the stage on several occasions. Fred is going to tell us about this complicity, while unveiling chords from his latest album “Ultramarino”, which tells the story of his arrival in Portugal and his meeting with various Portuguese-speaking musicians. João Afonso will share the chords and complete the story.

In the line-up of the concert are the compositions by Fred Martins “Tempo Afora”, “A Filha da Porta-Bandeira”, “Avamente” (FRED MARTINS “Avamente”), “Noites de São João” (from a poem by Alberto Caieiro with music by Fred Martins) that will join João Afonso’s hits such as “Carteiro em Bicicleta”, “Acridoce” and “Na Machamba”, among other songs.

João Afonso has albums released nationally and internationally and has toured much of the world representing Portuguese music. Throughout his career, he has worked with musicians and performers from the national and international music scene, such as José Mário Branco, Fausto Bordalo Dias, Amélia Muge, Júlio Pereira, Filipa Pais, Uxia, Luís Pastor, the Mestisay group, Pablo Milanés, Paco Ibañez, Pedro Guerra and Javier Ruibal, Kepa Junkera, Costa Neto, Stewart Sukuma, Juan Carlos Cambas, among others.

Standing out among the artists of his generation, Fred Martins has released seven albums, the most recent being “Ultramarino”, from 2021, in which he brings together the songs composed in the years he lived between Portugal and Spain. Recently there was the TV special “A Música é Meu País” aired by RTP1 and available on RTP Palco (Portugal).

His compositions have also been interpreted by names such as Ney Matogrosso, Adriana Calcanhoto, Zélia Duncan, Maria Rita, Nancy Vieira, Susana Travassos, Joana Amendoeira and some have already been included in soap operas and series on Rede Globo.
