Mobirise

Repasseado emerged in the summer of 2019 to consolidate the work of a team with 20 years of experience booking concerts and tours in festivals and venues around the world.
They were responsible for the portuguese band Dazkarieh career for 15 years, a notorious journey in festivals all over the world, showing that Portugal still had many surprieses to show in the roots music scene.

Repasseado seeks to bring together a community of artists at the forefront of Portuguese music. A vanguard that increasingly includes elements of Portuguese culture and identity together with the most contemporary expressions.

In recent years Repasseado team has been actively involved in the careers of its artists who have played in festivals such as Womex, Reepperbahn, Eurosonic, Rudolstadt, Kaustinen, Viljandi, Dranouter, Live at Heart, Exib Musica, FolkHebst, WestWay Lab, Med, Iminente, Artes à Rua, etc., and in the production of educational and involving local communities projects. They have also consolidated themselves on national and international radio and charts and have had reviews in important world music magazines such as Songlines, Folker, fRoots and Folkworld.

Repasseado bets on booking and management of its artists but also encompasses a know-how that ranges from ethno-musical knowledge to new technologies such as video-maping, light design with time code programming and live looping.

The national and internationalization consolidation of Repasseado artists is undoubtedly a focal point of a work that seeks to make the world aware of an emerging Portuguese musical identity.

SEIVA

Seiva is one of the most unique and international bands in the folk scene in Portugal. They started their career in 2014 with the goal of making a musical project totally based on the Portuguese oral tradition. Heirsof Dazkarieh, Vasco Ribeiro Casais and Joana Negrão brought to Seiva their will to explore even further the Portuguese traditional music present in the worksongs, in the adufes and tambourines, in the songs of faith and in instrumentssuch as the cavaquinho, viola braguesa and Portuguese bagpipes. Using everything and mixing it with its original themes, with electronics and electricity, without modesty or purity.

In 2019, they were awarded the “Impulso” award from the Ibero-American periodicals network at the Exib Musica festival in Setúbal.

In 2020, they won the support of Dgartes for the creation of the project “Da Seiva à Árvore” with the aim of bringing traditional music to the school community through concerts and a textbook to be published in 2021.

2021 will be the year in which they will also launch a second album.

Seiva make the Portuguese roots gain a whole new meaning nowadays.

OMIRI

Omiri is one of the most original projects to reinvent Portuguese music.

To reinvent tradition, nothing better than bringing the real players of Portuguese culture to the show itself; musicians and soundscapes from all over Portugal playing and singing as if they were part of the same universe. Not in flesh and blood but in sound and image, with video field recordings manipulated in order to serve as a musical base for Vasco Ribeiro Casais's composition and improvisation.

Omiri is, above all, remix, the culture of the 21st century, mixing in one show already forgotten musical practices, making them permeable and accessible to the culture of our day, synchronizing forms and music of Portuguese rural tradition with the language of the urban culture.

Mobirise

In the last years Omiri has established itself as one of Portugal most international musical projects, taking Portuguese culture to the four corners of the world and performing in major national and international festivals such as Womex, Reepperbahn, Eurosonic, Rudolstadt, Kaustinen, Viljandi, Dranouter, Live at Heart, Exib-Music, Iminente, WestWay Lab, Med, Artes à Rua among many others.

At the same time, it also develops special projects with the involvement of local communities and aimed at specific regions. "Alentejo vol.I: Évora" is undoubtedly a masterpiece that reintroduces the entire culture of a region.

A CANTADEIRA

Cantadeira (Singing women) is Joana Negrão's solo project, a true “one woman band” and a challenge that finally makes sense in her career. It is also born in a period of imposed confinement and social distance and from all the impossibilities of playing together with his musical projects. Creating and playing music alone was, more than an expected route, a necessity for almost 20 years playing in various projects with other musicians.

After accumulating performative experience, composition and research in her projects, she decided to create a solo one where she could put into practice all his influences and aspirations.

Mobirise

Cantadeira is Joana Negrão alone on stage but very well accompanied by her own voice, building overlapping sound layers that serve as the basis for traditionally inspired melodies, as well as invoking soundscapes from our collective memory. Although also using the Portuguese Cancioneiro A Cantadeira intends to create a new repertoire, giving voice to current issues and looking for the tradition of today.

BICHO CARPINTEIRO

Mobirise

Bicho Carpinteiro is the new project by Vasco Ribeiro Casais (Omiri, Seiva, Dazkarieh) and Rui Rodrigues (Casuar, LOT, Uxu Kalhus).

The synergy of these two musicians with results in a deep and power folk in which the various musical languages of the Portuguese tradition (fados, chulas, viras, lenga-lengas, etc.) are recreated through the lens of these two artists who fuse them with electronic environments.

LUSITANIAN GHOSTS

Lusitanian Ghosts features ancient Portuguese chordophones and other European string instruments, promoting ancient sounds in the 21st Century.

Re-casting these heritage folk violas into rock n roll songs, the artist collective writes from a socio-political perspective on building a better world, creating songs from and for the heart and the mind.

Their second album, recorded on analogue tape at Clouds Hill Studios in Hamburg, will be out towards the end of 2020.

Mobirise

It is a musical project that mixes indie songwriting with traditional Portuguese instruments like the Beiroa, Campaniça, Braguesa, Terceirense and Amarantina guitars – or violas as they are called in Portugal: each with its own string arrangements and tunings.

Lusitanian Ghosts was founded by Neil Leyton and Micke Ghost, when Leyton took a viola Amarantina from Lisbon to Stockholm; Leyton then decided to make an experimental album mixing the various regional Lusitanian (Portuguese) chordophones with their usual brand of singer-songwriter rock n roll.

The collective gathered at Canoa Studios in Portugal, with producer Ricardo Ferreira, and recorded ten songs, featuring Leyton on bass as well as the viola Beiroa; Micke Ghost on the Amarantina; Vasco Ribeiro Casais aka OMIRI on the Braguesa and Nyckelharpa; O Gajo on the viola Campaniça; and Primitive Reason’s Abel Beja on the viola Terceira. In the absence of Lil’ Ghost, who would join later, Ricardo also played the viola Toeira: making it 6 regional chordophones on this unique record.

Along with the debut album there is a feature documentary film that also interviews several chordophone experts who explain why most of these Portuguese ancient instruments became forgotten – almost extinct – over time.

These historic instruments… they are the real Lusitanian Ghosts.
