Born in the heart of the bohemian neighbourhood that gives them their name, Cais Sodré Funk Connection are a band of Portuguese music veterans and genuine ambassadors of funk & soul.
The soul power is provided by Francisco Rebelo on bass, João Gomes on keyboards, David Pessoa on guitar, Rui Alves on drums and the powerful brass section of João Cabrita, José Raminhos and Miguel Marques. Led by the unmistakable one-man show Silk (Fernando Nobre), they are accompanied by the sensual and seductive voice of Tamin (Telma Santos).
Specially dressed for the occasion, they come onto the stage and set audiences alight, whether playing the first parts of concerts with Sharon Jones or Lionel Ritchie, or in partnership with leading artists such as Rickie Calloway, Paulo de Carvalho and more recently Eduardo Nascimento and António Calvário, at the Portuguese Song Festival in 2019.
