Next week's Live Spotlight: AFONSO PAIS - August 22nd - Jardim Botânico da Ajuda
Afonso Pais is a jazz guitarist who has been recently gaining some notoriety, though he's been releasing records since 2004. His record with bossa nova-influenced singer JP Simões, brought critical acclaim to both artists, and he's now experimenting further: his latest offering, "Terra Concreta" has been recorded in the middle of nature, letting the surrounding elements be a part of the music. The album sessions took place in seven different nature parks in Portugal and one in Indonesia. Trying to bring this nature feeling to his live presentations, Afonso Pais will certainly make use of the beautiful surroundings of the Ajuda Botanical Garden on next week's concert, in trio format.
