Mafalda Veiga took us on the journey of her “Geografia Particular”

Teatro Tivoli BBVA

Tivoli received Mafalda Veiga for the presentation of “Geografia Particular” (“Private Geography”), a concert that filled the hearts of all the fans who were present in the Lisbon room, where she presented her many successes, but also unpublished ones.

In the presentation of the concert Mafalda said “In conversation with a colleague that I really like, we came to the conclusion that we don’t always remember the cause that made us write a song, nor the day or the time it was written, but, extraordinarily, we remember us, in almost all of them, from where we were when we wrote them.”

This is how Mafalda presented each theme she sang, a journey through her poetry, music, who she was with when she created the song, and of course where she was, one of the most recognized Portuguese singers and songwriters, author of some of the most emblematic songs of contemporary Portuguese music, which have dazzled us, whether the themes are sung by her, or by so many other singers, who have given voice to her songs.

“Geografia Particular” the name of her latest album which Mafalda intends to be “…a geography that belongs to each person, an inner map of memories and emotions where each song that is special to us manages to guide us, to each one of us who hear it, with the accuracy of a GPS.

This concert talks about my geography and the particular way it intersects with others.

For this very reason, it is also important to walk it alone, most of the time, so as not to get distracted along the way. Taking my guitars and my songs, written in drafts that I didn’t always keep, and looking for the “tone” of each of the places where I was sad or happy writing them (and where those who heard them were happy or sad listening to them). them too). Knowing that some of them have, had, will have a special meaning for those who listen to them is a gift.

Deep down, I always knew that my greatest desire was to go up on stage with them, one day, and find you there, on that side. Holders, each one of you, and each one in your own way, of my lost sketches, of our particular geographies”.
