Portugal Alentejo's cante

Jump to last reply

The polyphonic songs from the Alentejo were today listed as Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage. These songs are not well known since they are songs of miners or agriculture workers and rarely are recorded.
Alentejo is surprisingly untouched by globalization because their inhabitants fight for their traditions with great effort and pride.
Alentejo is represented in Lisbon by Casa do Alentejo. With this stimulus, I think that sooner or later there will be concerts of "Alentejo Cante" in Lisbon. Best results in youtube in "cantares alentejanos"
