Sounds of All Colors by 

LILIANA ALMEIDA and NAYR FAQUIRÁ

Aiming to discover and promote emerging artists in bands, solo singers, DJs and electronic music producers, solo dancers, or urban dance groups, this year, the #OneStep4MusicFest project, which in this edition was entitled LG Women’s Singer Contest, is themed to Combat Racial Discrimination and Gender Inequality, through the creation of the collective of emerging artists Sounds of All Colors. In the first phase, this collective will be composed entirely of female artists. From this contest, four finalists were chosen who will be part of the Coletivo Sounds of All Colors and who will perform on the Stage LG by Rádio SBSR.FM at Super Bock Super Rock and on the Stage LG by MegaHits at MEO Sudoeste.

Liliana Almeida and Nayr Faquirá were the finalists selected to perform at MEO Sudoeste, on August 9th at the LG by Mega Hits Stage.

From this album, he has already released five singles, “Vives em Mim”, “Borboletas”, “Mais Bonita Contigo”, “Nunca Estás Sozinho” and the most recent “Belo Risco”, whose released videos have been at the top of Youtube. In this record, the public will be able to hear and feel the styles that the artist has already experienced, such as pop, electronica, semba, kilapanga, sukus, Brazilian music, drill, hip-hop, and even the world music universe. This is a genuine and inspiring album, both in terms of beats and lyrics. It is the culmination of a 22-year career and marks a new personal and professional stage for an artist who is preparing to hit the road in 2023.

Nayr Faquirá is 24 years old, of Mozambican and Portuguese ancestry. She sings, plays the piano, and is a lyricist and producer. After starting her life in the art world between piano and dance, at the age of 17, she decided to embark on her first big adventure: The Voice Portugal 2015 program. music.

In 2020, the singer returns to Portugal in the midst of the pandemic and starts working on her first EP. “Misturas” features strong contributions such as the rapper Valete. The artist’s first EP, as the title describes, features a mix of genres, sounds, and cultures. The most recent EP, “Quente”, brings a more interventionist side to her career. The record features the participation of names such as Selma Uamusse, Soluna, and Manecas Costa, promoting collaboration between female universes, at a time when so much is said about women’s empowerment and, especially, black women. Her African roots combine with R&B and the soul of her voice, making Nayr one of the most promising names in music made here.

SUPA SQUAD

Mr. Marley and Zacky Man form Supa Squad, a Cape Verdean dancehall duo that emerged in 2011, in Porto. Their sound is characterized by the fusion of new roots, reggae and dancehall, in an atmosphere to which they combine energetic performances and a unique performance style. Supa Squad are not just a singing duo, they are also producers, having produced their themes and themes for other artists. The eponymous EP, released in 2015, featured Jamaican singer Duane Stephenson. In this record, the composition, production, mixing and mastering of all the songs was all done by the duo, showing the thousand talents of Mr. Marley and Zacky Man.

EDGAR DOMINGOS

Edgar Domingos started singing in 2013 influenced by his friends, eventually joining a rap group called IVLD. The following year he released his first mixtape, “Young Kings”. In 2014 he decided to embrace a new project, without abandoning the previous one, a step that helped him to expand his art, thus integrating a new group, the Raptors. In 2015 he released his first EP under his own name. “Alone” had a rap as its predominant style and already showed all of Edgar’s qualities. In early 2017 he decided to sing in another musical style, kizomba and released the theme “Desmonta”, which would become the most heard and danced song on Angolan dance floors. In recent years Edgar Domingos has become one of the most beloved artists in Angola. And in Portugal, his presence has also been growing. The singles “Senhor Incrível” and “Adoço” remained in the music charts for several weeks. The album “Às de Copas” was a success for the public and showed the excellent form of the musician. He is, therefore, a musician in a state of grace who performs on the 10th of August, on the Stage LG by Mega Hits.

BLACCI

Blacci is a name to keep in mind in the future of our music. At just over 20 years old, the Luso-Brazilian is different from anything seen in Portugal and Brazil. The daughter of a musician father, the young composer, and author has not stopped growing artistically. The music she makes is born from the translation of her own daily life, with its life stories and good vibes, transmitting a positive message and a breath of fresh air in the face of the difficult and intense moment the world is in these days. Pop music, trap, and R&B are influences that add to her chilling acoustic vibes, making Blacci a performer full of charisma, with a musical language perfectly adapted to her personality. The single “Vou Te Amar”, in collaboration with Murta, and the theme “Mar No Fim”, with which he participated in the Festival da Canção 2022, show all his talent and are two more proofs that Blacci promises to bring a new color to the Portuguese-speaking music scene.

With his participation in the Knock Out League and with the growth of the GROGNation group (two mixtapes, two EPs, and the album “Nada é Por Acaso”), Papillon has emerged as one of the best rappers of the new generation. The year 2018 marked the true metamorphosis when Rui Pereira emerged from the cocoon and released his first album as a solo artist. Teaming up with Slow J and Sente This, Papillon has flapped his wings and released “Deepak Looper,” an autobiographical tale that explores Mem Martins’ artist roots and scars. Since then, the stages have become his home and the public has been surrendering to Papillon, who surprised him in his passages through the main national stages. During 2019, Papillon and his band (composed of Vasco Ruivo, Luís Logrado, and X Acto) continued to bring “Deepak Looper” to the ears of all fans of authentic music. And more recent songs like “01 Coisa Leve”, “00 Fala Bonito” (Prod. Lhast), “Chillin’” (Prod. Holly & Slow J), “AAA”, “Sweet Spot” (Feat. Murta) prove that the musician is in great shape, always committed to testing his own limits.

Already in 2020, Mizzy starts to present herself in a prominent plan, exposing the first themes in her own name, surrounding herself with the main figures of the urban movement in Portugal, and expanding her sound in collaborations with 9 Miller, benji price, Carla Prata, Minguito, Lhast, Lon3r Johny and Prodigio.

From there, until he started dedicating himself to his own freestyles, it was a small step. Prodigy started writing rhymes at the age of 12, entering the world of hip-hop in 2001. He started to walk the path to success with the release of his first official mixtape, “O Alquimista”, in 2011. He has already won several awards and, among the most recent, including Best Album of the Year, with “Prodígios” and Rapper MVP, both from the Angola Hip Hop Awards, as well as Best Collaboration of the Year and Best Singer of the Year at Globos Da Zap.

In 2021, he presented the single “Lugar”, revealing a new musicality and focusing on issues such as distance in relationships. At the end of that year, the EP “Mãe Um Dia Eu Ganho Um Diamante” arrived. Singles like “Raiz”, with L-Ali, “Pontas”, with Xtinto, and “Diamante” conquered the public and made Harold one of the most promising names in national hip-hop. The rapper performs on August 12th, at the LG by Mega Hits Stage.

CATARINA FILIPE

Catarina Filipe started a YouTube channel as a hobby, while still in college, and shortly afterwards she was already one of the biggest creators of lifestyle content in Portugal, captivating those who follow her with her authenticity and the real sharing of her life.

LG celebrates 20 years in Portugal on the stages of Super Bock Super Rock and MEO Sudoeste

For the 7th consecutive year, LG returns in 2023 to be the technological partner of these summer festivals where it promises to celebrate national talent, its diversity, and a “future without limits”

If summer is synonymous with music festivals, this year music festivals will be synonymous with celebrating LG’s 20th anniversary in Portugal. The technological partner of Super Bock Super Rock and MEO Sudoeste for the 7th consecutive year is to be congratulated and will celebrate on the stages LG by Rádio SBSR.FM and LG by MegaHits.

Paying homage to the past, the company will celebrate 20 years of experience and growth in the country with a calendar of special initiatives throughout this year under a unique campaign with an eye on the future. And it will be that same future that will be highlighted on the two LG Stages with the motto “The Future is Super”, in the 27th edition of Super Bock Super Rock, and “The Future is Yours”, in the 25th edition of MEO Sudoeste.

Functioning as an aggregator concept for all the initiatives carried out this year, the motto of the campaign celebrating LG’s 20th anniversary in Portugal immediately lets you guess the direction, tone, and positioning that the company intends to maintain and even reinforce over the next few years in the country. With “The future is…”, the company recognizes the path taken so far but unveils its vision of what is to come. And what is to come includes diversity, innovation, and sustainability that will be key elements of a limitless future, which can be imagined, shaped, and created.

And it is precisely these key elements that mark LG’s presence once again at these festivals and are an integral part of the brand’s 20th-anniversary party in Portugal. Maintaining the tradition of investing in culture and talents that are now starting their careers in the world of music in our country, the Stages LG by Rádio SBSR.FM and LG by Mega Hits will give voice to diversity and equality to those who dared to imagine, shape, and create its future, promoting “a future without limits” for the artists who will take to these stages for the first time.

The future is… Equality and Diversity

It is with this motto in mind that Super Bock Super Rock and MEO Sudoeste festival-goers will be able to watch the performance of an unprecedented collective of emerging artists which, in the first phase, will be composed entirely of women, in partnership with Música no Coração. The Sounds of All Colors Collective made up of four elements, is born out of the LG WOMEN’S SINGER CONTEST, open exclusively to female artists, which was promoted between March 22nd and April 20th by LG and Big Appetite 4 Music, responsible for the project #OneStep4MusicFest, with the aim of discovering new talents on the national scene who, through various annual competitions, gain the opportunity to step, for the first time, on a large stage dedicated to national music, in partnership with Música no Coração.

Aiming to discover and promote emerging artists from bands, solo singers, DJs and electronic music producers, solo dancers, or urban dance groups, this year’s #OneStep4MusicFest project had as its theme the Fight against Racial Discrimination and Inequality of Gender that will now be embodied by a powerful group of women whose “Future is unlimited”.

“Inclusion, diversity, and equality are topics that are on the agenda, and at LG we believe that this should also be our fight. After several years of promoting young national talents, the time has come for us to take a step forward towards diversity and equality in the line-ups of summer festivals as well. For that reason, we supported this contest, which discovered a female universe full of rising stars in the Portuguese music scene that will now have the stage it deserves”, says Hugo Jorge, Marketing Director of LG Portugal.

And if for LG, valuing national talent and discovering new values for Portuguese music and culture are part of its past, its present, and its future, in a year when the brand celebrates its 20th anniversary and the journey of innovation in Portugal, the LG Cool Spot, or the guarantee of the best shade and charging points at the MEO Sudoeste campsite and the LG laundry, which disruptively marked the lives of festival-goers, could not fail to join the party which also counts on the presence, for the second consecutive year, of LG Stage Rechargers, so that everyone who is at the forefront of LG stages never runs out of battery.

With its eyes on the future, but honoring its past in all the initiatives in which it is or will be involved in this year of celebration, LG will once again make available at Herdade do Cabeço da Flauta, next to Praia do Meco, in Sesimbra, and at Herdade da Casa Branca, in Zambujeira do Mar, the LG Meeting Spots. A reference in Super Bock Super Rock and MEO Sudoeste, similar to the work carried out by LG over the last 20 years to support national culture and talent, which stands out for “our continuous commitment to innovation and learning, and above all everything, for the effort to promote the people who help us build this brand and this company every day, and who have an unlimited future ahead of them”, reinforces Hugo Jorge, Marketing Director of LG Portugal.
