Live Entertainment
Fogo Fogo offer an infectious celebration of Cape Verdean rhythms, embracing Lisbon’s multiculturalism and highlighting the vast reach of the Portuguese speaking diaspora… while of course reaching out to all those who love to dance!

Stemming from the ‘Orquestra Todos’, a project supported by the Gulbenkian Foundation aiming to foster cultural diversity through music, these five musicians discovered a common ground through their shared nostalgia for the island of Fogo in Cape Verde. With further support from Casa Independente, a non-profit cultural association and a collaborative co-sharing space in Lisbon, Fogo Fogo found a space to create and to showcase this more traditional side of African music.

Musicians: João Gomes (keyboard), Francisco Rebelo (bass), Marcio Silva (drums), David Person (guitar) and Danilo Lopes (guitar)
