Madredeus, the essential Portuguese band led by Pedro Ayres Magalhães, is back onstage again after a six year sabbatical, celebrating their 25th anniversary.
The show on Monday, April 16th, in London marks the return of Portugal’s most atmospheric and long-term musical export. Their soaring ethereal sound took them from their rehearsal room in a church in the Lisbon neighborhood of Madredeus in the mid-1980s to ovations in concert halls around the world.
Together with the keyboards of long time member Carlos Maria Trindade, and the strings of Jorge Varrecoso (violin), António Figueiredo (violin) and Luís Clode (cello), the group has discovered a remarkable new voice: Beatriz Nunes. The April 16th special show presents highlights of Madredeus’ catalog devotedly chosen from the last quarter century.
