Paulo Bragança, the “punk fadista”, as some have dubbed him, who has been in spiritual and artistic exile for over a decade, returns to resume a path that is far from complete.
In 1992, he released his first album and amazed Portugal. From shock to worship was a climax. Amai sees the light of day two years later, in 1994. He travels the world, by the hand of David Byrne (Talking Heads / Luaka Bop) revolutionizing fado. She also edited Fado Mystery (1996) and Half-Naked Moon (2001). He reemerged many years later in Dublin as a Ph.D. graduate and film actor in Fergal Rock’s short film Henry and Sunny. Started packing.
On his return to Portugal, he signed a lunar collaboration with the Moonspell, participating in the theme In Tremor Dei of the 1755 disc of the gothic metal band, dedicated to the Lisbon Earthquake. In 2018, he presented the Captive EP nationwide. Portugal received it as a blessing. The audience welcomed him with open arms. Exactly 22 years after his first and only concert at the Belém Cultural Center Grand Auditorium – October 25, 1997 – he returns to the same room. A concert that is unforgettable.
