The famous chanson française refers to a musical universe with a unique language where the word assumes a primary role in the construction of the songs.
Jacques Brel is a basic name of French-speaking culture with a stamp printed in various artistic manifestations, ranging from cinema to music. It was in the last one that he affirmed his identity as one of the most renowned interpreters of the last century – crossing the borders of his native Belgium and France that welcomed him. A storyteller (both through words and the intensity of his performances) who fell in love with Salvador Sobral from an early age and led him to create this cycle of concerts where the proposal is explained in the title: sing Brel.
To achieve it, he surrounded himself with musicians who understand this musical language in all its complexity and richness.
Accompanying him are Samuel Lercher (piano), Nelson Cascais (double bass), Joel Silva (drums), André Santos (guitar), Inês Vaz (accordion), Diogo Duque (trumpet and flutes) and Ana Cláudia Serrão (cello).
