Born in Huambo, Angola, in 1981 Nástio Mosquito was a journalist, is now an artist and musician. In his first album, Se eu fosse Angolano, he presents to the public his vision of the world and of a plural Angola where the countryside and the city redefine themselves, where contemporary society takes care of urban reality, while we reinvent ourselves as a nation, as a society.
This work speaks of the man-woman relationship, the relationship of man with money and the elderly, and of the love for his country, despite all the challenges it faces. With strong lyrics, the music he makes brings together various musical genres, including hip-hop, dub, kizomba, kuduro and rock. There was a gathering of territorial and ideological influences in which Angolans lived, by choice or by force of circumstances, in an eclectic product that one can not question the source: it is Angola. The deep voice of Mosquito in this concert is complemented by a video project with visual work of Vic Pereiró.
Moço Árabe is the project of Guillermo de Llera, a multidisciplinary artist and ethnomusicologist.
Founder, bassist and vocalist of Primitive Reason, he uses music, writing and painting to express his life story, greatly marked by the migration between various countries to Portugal, where he lives today.
In his latest project, Moço Árabe, he addresses the issue of displacement of the Mozarabs, Iberian Christians living under Muslim rule and that are a symbol of multi-culture and fusion of philosophies. Featuring revolutionary and modern music, Moço Árabe achieves a musical fusion between what is traditional and what is invention, a consequence of the lack of cultural references and forced displacement and migration.
