EDUARDO CARDINHO "NOT FAR FROM PARADISE" ▪ 17H30
Eduardo Cardinho, vibraphonist and composer based in Porto, presents his latest project "Not Far From Paradise", which resulted in the creation of an album that will be released in 2024 by the prestigious Barcelona label, Fresh Sound.
Standing out as one of the most creative vibraphonists of his generation, known for his rhythmic approach and unique sound, Cardinho developed over the years his own voice on the vibraphone and invited some of the best musicians from the new generation of Portuguese jazz to be part of this project.

NOUT ▪ 21H00
The missing link between Nirvana and Sun Ra, the collaboration between Delphine Joussein, Rafaëlle Rinaudo and Blanche Lafuente aims to push their instruments beyond their limits, with the enthusiasm of a mad scientist in front of their bottles. Flute, harp, drums: a rare combination that this trio turns upside down. Following John Zorn's experiences on the frontiers of jazz and noise, NOUT imagine their music as a scenario with surprising twists: we believe we are Ellen Ripley in Alien but we find ourselves in Indiana Jones; we started with our eyes closed in the red seat of a cinema and ended up swaying in a moshpit.
Delphine Joussein - flute
Rafaëlle Rinaudo - electric harp
Blanche Lafuente - drums
ORQUESTRA JAZZ DE MATOSINHOS ▪ 22H30
In 2014, the Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos launched a cycle dedicated to some of the best new soloists in Portuguese jazz (which since 2019 has expanded to the entire Iberian Peninsula). A body of instrumentalists with solid training and consistent activity, musicians who wanted to bring something of their own to jazz, who dedicated themselves to the fusion of styles and made personal artistic identities flourish. The new record labels are incredibly dynamic, allowing the public to easily encounter the work of a new generation of musicians. Why not, then, bring some of the worthiest representatives of this generation to the rare context of a big band?
It is Bernardo Tinoco, saxophonist from Lisbon, who takes on the solo stand in the concert with Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos, conducted by João Pedro Brandão.
