Today in Quinta dos Vales: "Tribute to Zeca Afonso"

On March 23rd, Zeca Afonso will be remembered in Quinta dos Vales. Considered by many 'a man with a vision far ahead' whose message is still current, the poet will receive a tribute by several Algarve musicians deeply experienced and absorbed in his style: 'Grupo Mar de Fora' will be accompanied by guest singer Oriana Dias. Zeca Afonso's remarkable songs are given new strength by its lyrics wherein political messages are disguised in poetry: 'Eles comem tudo e não deixam nada' or 'A morte saiu à rua num dia assim'. He spoke not only of revolution , his lyrics were also imbued with affection and solidarity, this is why we will remember Zeca's most romantic songs, like 'O meu benzinho', in a magical cultural evening.
Quinta dos Vales continues its the cultural sessions, always encouraging and promoting Portuguese culture in a wine venue of excellence. These are enough reasons for you not to miss this tribute concert to the great Zeca Afonso.
The concert will start at 9:00pm, you can contact Quinta dos Vales for more information or reservations:
Tel. 282 431 036

Tickets cost 18,00€ and include your first wine glass.
