03 April – World Music Artist from Portugal
A songwriter and singer who performs in many musical styles, Dulce Pontes was a pioneer of the 1990s revival of fado, a Portuguese urban folk music genre. She started her career as a mainstream pop artist, but evolved over the years to become a world music singer. She blends traditional fado with contemporary styles and searches out new forms of musical expression. Her work is inspired by Iberian musical traditions, as well as also Arabic, African, Brazilian and Bulgarian sounds. The concert is at Is Sanat Culture Centre, 8 p.m.
