The music ensemble Trovar o Povo, composed of two young Portuguese musicians specializing in traditional Portuguese music, will perform on July 4th at the Kunstraum Botschaft with the concert "From the People for the People: A Journey through Traditional Portuguese Music”.

João Francisco Távora (recorder) and Jorge Castro (voice, adufe, and artistic direction) have made it their mission to embody Portuguese folklore in its original form, combating the erosion of traditional Portuguese history and culture. To achieve this, they present a carefully researched ethnographic interpretation combined with a musical recreation that highlights the historical origins of each song, tracing back to medieval and Renaissance times, among others.

The performance, with free admission, will begin at 6 PM.
