Age Restriction



55 years after his first recording labelled Aquila, João Braga comes to the Teatro São Luiz stage to celebrate a life surrounded by poetry, music, friends and fado. The professionalization, in 1967, was simultaneously the result of an intense activity as an amateur in fado houses, gatherings and other fado events, and the starting point of a career punctuated by more than 40 recordings among singles, EPs. LPs and CDs, many concerts as an artist and producer, and the recording of TV shows. He co-organized with Luiz Villas-Boas, in 1971, the mythical Cascais Jazz – Festival Internacional de Jazz, which brought to Portugal for the first time some of the biggest names in world jazz such as Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie or Thelonious Monk. Throughout his career he dedicated himself to stage many young fado singers whose talent he recognized, artists that on this evening will gather João Braga to, with him, celebrate this much life and fado.
