Manecas Costa & Fran Perez (Narf)Al�� Irm��o! ( Galicia Guinea-Bissau )

Galician and African music in fraternal encounter 

Al�� Irmao by Al�� Irmao

 

If there is a cultural exchange between borders that really works and bears fruits it���s the one developed between musicians from Galicia and the Portuguese-speaking countries. Manecas Costa, guitar player, singer and composer born in Guinea-Bissau is one of the most active in these musical excursions to the Iberian Peninsula���s northwest, having collaborated in the recording of a CD by Ux��a Senlle and nurturing a project ��� Humor Neghro ��� with the Galician actor Carlos Blanco. Now, he goes on stage with one more Galician great, Fran P��rez (Narf), an open-minded singer / songwriter that has already worked with musicians from another lusophone country, Mozambique . In the show they put together ��� Al�� Irm��o! (Hello Brother!) ��� their voices and their acoustic and electric guitars use each other���s repertoire and original songs to sow an aesthetical ground where Galicia, Portugal and Guin��-Bissau communicate with the intimacy of what they are, brother countries.
