Antonio Zambujo sings Chico Buarque

There is no bigger star than António Zambujo in his homeland of Portugal. The charismatic charmer possesses the rare talent to captivate an entire audience and yet feel like he is singing to each member individually. Zambujo has carved a career by creating his own distinct sound skips between Fado and the traditional music of Alentejo.

He plays material from his new album Até Pensei Que Fosse Minha (I Even Thought She Was Mine) which is a tribute to the songs of the great Brazillian singer Chico Buarque at Cadogan Hall in London on Friday 21st of April.

Brothers José and David Muñoz are two halves of the perfect partnership Estopa. Tapping into elements of rock, rumba and flamenco, Estopa have dominated the charts with hits like El Run Run, Cuando Amanece and Con La Mano Levanta. The Spanish siblings take their band name from their old bosses slogan ‘Dale Estopa a la maquina’ meaning ‘Crank it Up’ that he would declare while they worked in the car factory. They now direct that endless energy into their music.

Estopa play their sensational set at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London on Sunday 23rd of April.
