Campo Pequeno was the stage for the presentation of Kriola, to the long-awaited album, by Dino D’Santiago, who in this second show after confinement, must have an almost full house, according to the new standards of distance.
With everyone still getting used to the new rules, distance, masks, staying seated, something that is very difficult when going to a show that invites you to dance since the first song, it was with this alert that Dino D’Santiago started on the stage, “Stay seated, not to boycott us”.
Before starting Dino D’Santiago asked the audience for a minute of silence for “freedom” and for the “more than 40 million slaves that exist worldwide, 20% children and 40% women”, it was only after this moment, which started the night of music, joy and a lot of dance, even if seated.
If the artists on stage now have more difficulty seeing what the audience is feeling, the masks hide their smiles, in this case, Dino D’Santiago, certainly did not have that difficulty, because nobody could stop quietly on the chairs and if during some time the chairs suffered whit the dancing movement, it didn’t take long until some started to get up and dance to the rhythms of “Kriola”.
It was with ‘Morabeza (na na na) ”that the show started, but” Roda “,” My Lover “,” Kriolu “,” Kem Ki Flau “,” Arriscar”,” Sofia “and” Nhôs Obi “, themes of the album “Kriola”, passed by the stage, rhythms of “Cape Verdean flavour” accompanied by actuality.
But other themes were also part of the evening at Campo Pequeno, “Nova Lisboa”, “Raboita Sta. Catarina” and “Tudo Certo” among others.
Dino D’Santiago, who was accompanied by a female trio on Stage, showed that it is possible to pass this phase that we are going through, with all the security, that you cannot do without the artists, the shows, without the culture, which defines us so much and defines a country.
