A concert, sometimes a little black, but with very strong and vibrant moments, had small statements at the beginning of the themes, such as Anibal Cavaco Silva about having a profession for life, which he resulted in smiles around the room.
With a more Rock tone, Manuel Cruz, took us on a journey through his themes, and fulfilling the use of the mask, he even strolled along the side with the public, in “Eleva!” music with which he started the concert as if trying to purify the spirits of those present, declaimed the text of a Brazilian pastor.
In front of a fan audience, who applauded, commented and intervened in the concert, and for the delight of the musicians on stage, many themes were presented on stage, “Canção da Canção Triste”, “Entre das Pedras”, “A Dor de Ter de Errar”, “Libelinha” and the new theme “Pode Beijar a Noiva“.
In “Tirem O Macaco da Prisão”, always wearing a mask, he returned to be with the audience walking along the sides in a moment of freedom.
