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.
Liliana Almeida was born in 1983 and has been singing since she can remember. Music has always been part of her daily life, her father Cordeiro de Almeida, is a percussionist and member of his own band. After many years of love for music and artistic life, in December 2022 she released her first solo album. “Cheguei” contains eleven themes, plus a bonus theme. 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. Over time, and while discovering herself as a composer, Nayr also began to produce her songs with the help of producer Alec Chassain. 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.
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.
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.
