For many years Portuguese music was only known through its Fado ambassadors, from Amália Rodrigues to Mariza. But following the revolution in 1974. and starting with the Portuguese "new wave" of rock and pop groups, the country has experienced a veritable explosion of new music genres and stylistic mash-ups. This in turn has led to a wave of export-ready music such as the unique soundscapes of Madredeus, the Lusitanian metal of Moonspell, the kuduru of Buraka Som Sistema, The Gift's alt-pop, with their latest album produced by Brian Eno (be sure to see them at Eurosonic), and other artists from The Legendary Tigerman to Batida. Get to know the Portuguese music industry from some of its leading cross-generational figures in this unique conversation moderated by Rui Miguel Abreu, the man with the biggest vinyl collection in all Portugal.
