The duo Jimmy P and Carolina Deslandes presented their most recent project “Mercúrio” at Festival F’s “Noites 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 EP entitled “Mercúrio” has five tracks and joins Carolina Deslandes and Jimmy P, longtime friends who had already collaborated on the song “Contigo”, which came out at the beginning of last year. This new album was released on July 31 and can be heard on digital platforms.
“[the album] Is the balance between two artists with very different languages, but who find in Mercúrio a place and a space of confluence where their imagery fuses in the same identity”, says Jimmy P about the project. The duo revealed that they had wanted to work together for some time, but it was only in the last quarantined months that they had the time and found the opportunity to build this project.
The duo joined last Friday, September 4th, to present this album together on stage with Marco Pombinho on the keyboards, André Silva on the drums, and Feodor Bivol on the guitar. In addition to songs like “Ruas da Minha Cidade” and “Jogo Sujo“, from this new album, we also heard “On Fire” and “Entre As Estrelas” by Jimmy P, and “Adeus, Amor, Adeus” by Carolina Deslandes, among others.
Jimmy P and Carolina Deslandes are two of the most well-known artists, not only of their generation but also at the national level, who are constantly at the top of national sales and streaming.
Festival F is not over yet, today is the turn of António Zambujo, and next week, the last, 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, while the remaining stages and spaces of the festival (Quintalão, Museum, Ria, Fábrica, Formosa, Sé cloisters, among others) are 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.
