Pedro Mestre will be coming to the CCB to present his most recent release, Campaniça do Despique, in a live concert. As a musician, he evokes the most genuine sounds from his playing of the “Campaniça” guitar, an instrument that has always accompanied the traditional improvised singing of the Alentejo.
At this concert, Mestre will be presenting previously unheard music, written both by himself and by José David, as well as other themes from the traditional Alentejo songbook, which are given a whole new lease of life here. His album, Campaniça do Despique, is intended to provide a continuation for the work of this musician, in which tradition and innovation go hand in hand, helping this cultural identity and collective memory of a people to cross borders and reach new audiences.
Performing alongside Pedro Mestre, and accompanied by his “Campaniça” guitar, will be the Rancho de Cantadores de Aldeia Nova de São Bento, a singing group who will be bringing with them the famous cante alentejano, and a quintet of musicians. There will also be various other special guests in this unique concert at the CCB.
