    FERNANDO COSTA, THE LEAVING

    The musician, guitar bass of fado, Fernando Costa left us, suddenly, the 4th of September. He was invariably well disposed, this news might seem like a bad joke which left us incredulous. Excellent person, excellent musician, that is consensual, someone who left the same good impressions with whom he crossed. He left early, suddenly, so […]

    The musician, guitar bass of fado, Fernando Costa left us, suddenly, the 4th of September.

    He was invariably well disposed, this news might seem like a bad joke which left us incredulous.

    Excellent person, excellent musician, that is consensual, someone who left the same good impressions with whom he crossed.

    He left early, suddenly, so we missed him that very night, as he had his usual performance at Café Luso.

    THE FADO AT THE CRAZY RACE

    They joined the four on the corner, they tuned to build a guitar … with wheels! Last Sunday the “autofado” team presented the vehicle at the Red Bull Grand Prix, the World’s Crazy Race! They say this is an event for the idiots, for fun, the fearless. The vehicle took a year and a half […]

    They joined the four on the corner, they tuned to build a guitar … with wheels!

    Last Sunday the “autofado” team presented the vehicle at the Red Bull Grand Prix, the World’s Crazy Race!

    They say this is an event for the idiots, for fun, the fearless.

    The vehicle took a year and a half to build and weighs about 70 kg.

    In this group of friends we have two nurses, a programmer, and a mechanical metal worker who is also a fado guitarist.

    AMALIA ON THE COAST

    Many know, Amália Rodrigues had one of her main refuges in Brejão farm (south coast of Portugal). Over the years she even created ties with the local community. This explains the intervention of the artist of “street art”, Ivo Santos. The images, painted in municipal buildings of the Brejão, are 8 meters high, 15 meters […]

    This explains the intervention of the artist of “street art”, Ivo Santos. The images, painted in municipal buildings of the Brejão, are 8 meters high, 15 meters long.

    In October there will be a public visit to the house of the diva of the fado, in her memory and will end with a night of fados.

    GARBAGE, THE BURDEN OF ALL OF US

    Garbage, being something inherent in human activity, is generated without interruption. Since we are all producers of waste and garbage, it is important that intelligence is put at the service of becoming aware of the seriousness of the problem. It is important that each one of them seeks to be better informed in order to […]

    Garbage, being something inherent in human activity, is generated without interruption.

    Since we are all producers of waste and garbage, it is important that intelligence is put at the service of becoming aware of the seriousness of the problem.

    It is important that each one of them seeks to be better informed in order to have a greener behavior, a more circular consumption of (recyclable) packaging, at home and abroad.

    September 15 is World Cleanup Day.

    For those who are still enjoying the beach, it is suggested that you participate in a joint cleaning action on any beach.

    85% of the trash found there is plastic.

    If there is no such will, the simple act of depositing the garbage itself in the corresponding containers (undifferentiated, plastic, paper and glass) contributes to the reduction of the ecological footprint.
