In a month of change of season, the Centro Cultural de Lagos presents two initiatives that are already part of the cultural panorama of Lacobrigens, the Fado Fest’ (10th and 11th September) and the Flamenco Festival (16th to 18th September), promising emotions strong on a stage that celebrates 30 years in 2022. Tickets are now on sale.
The edition of Fado Fest’ is dedicated to two great figures of this Portuguese genre. The Lisbon Jazz Quintet will be in charge of a tribute show to Carlos do Carmo (September 10), who died earlier this year, recreating the most striking fados and songs of the artist’s timeless work. Celebrating the centenary of the birth of the greatest Fado diva, Júlio Resende presents “Carta Aberta a Amália Rodrigues” (September 11), a tribute by the pianist to his muse, and he is the only artist in the world authorized to use Amália’s voice in an unlikely duet. The concerts, taking place at 9.30 pm, have a cost of €10 (per show) and are available at the Cultural Center reception or via Ticketline.
Between 16 and 18 September, the oldest flamenco festival held in Portugal returns, now in its 19th edition. Magic guitars with their own identity, a ball of beauty and passion and, above all, voices full of emotion and party are the ingredients of this initiative that in 2021 brings to Lagos Son y Tacón (16), Alma Flamenca (17) and Vandalus (18). The shows will take place at 9.30 pm on the days indicated, and tickets, purchased at the Centro Cultural de Lagos, will cost €12 per show.
With free entry, the exhibitions “Cada Conta, Conta” by Ana Canto, “Cápsula do Tempo” by the Portuguese Serigraphy Center, and “2020 – Ver para crer” by Paulo Figueiras are also on display in this cultural facility. On September 18th, the ceramic exhibition “A brincar com o fogo” by Adelaide Filipe will start.
