Poças, what a concert!

May 10, 2018 was the date on which Tomás Wallenstein joined the remaining Capitão Fausto for an exclusive concert by Poças. With their unmistakable sound and chords, the band performed live in Lisbon in an intimate concert for an audience of 200 people, among guests and fans who participated and won a competition launched on the brand’s social media. At the end there was an unprecedented meet and greet with the band.

All the unique moments of that night were closely followed by Poças. Wines and cocktails for all tastes were served to the audience to ensure that the first official event of the centenary had a great kick-off.

Concert “Rua das Pretas” has its premiere in the North

Jun 23, 2018

After their success in Lisbon, the intimate concerts by Pierre Aderne had their debut in our new visitor centre, in Vila Nova de Gaia. 

Rua das Pretas is a musical and wine gathering that fosters interaction between the audience and Portuguese and foreign artists. The place chosen for its first “Rua das Pretas” concert in Greater Porto was the new visitor centre of Poças, which supports the initiative in conjunction with Niepoort and Soalheiro. The first session was on the 15th of this month and new concerts in the future will take place at Poças cellars.

In each session, the past, present and future of Portuguese culture are celebrated with melodies of bossa nova, folk and jazz in their purest form, without microphones or amplifiers. The breaks are filled with good moments of conversation, accompanied by a glass of wine that inspires and brings the participants closer to each shared experience and musical key. Pierre Aderne invites the artists to use the place chosen for the concert as if they were at home.

Together, the three brands – Poças, Niepoort and Soalheiro – will be present in each session with a selection of white, red and Port wines, accompanied by a table of bread, cheese and sausages especially selected for a unique evening.

 

Where: Poças Cellars | Rua Visconde das Devesas 224, Vila Nova de Gaia

Admission: 30.00€ (via Ticketline and Airbnb music. Tickets are limited)

Capitão Fausto releases new single: Sempre bem

Jun 05, 2018

Capitão Fausto returns with “Sempre Bem”, the first single of the album “A Invenção do Dia Claro”.

The track was recorded at Red Bull Studios São Paulo in December 2017, by the hand (and ears) of Rodrigo “Funai” Costa.

According to the band, “from the beginning the album was intended to include the idea we had of ‘Brazil’ in our usual way of making music. It was never our intention to make it the way Brazilians do, but to seek an appropriation to some more specific sound or melodic elements, taking them from their usual context to serve our songs. The lyrics speak of the relationship with routine, the complexity of human relations and the inexorable fatalism of love.”

Expectations are high for “A Invenção do Dia Claro”. The album has a release date estimated for the last quarter of 2018.

Congratulations, Capitão Fausto!
