Accessibility for people with reduced mobility.

The Jardim da Estrela bandstand will be staging a concert by Real Combo Lisbonense, a project recovering a tradition which was somewhat lost in time: the tradition of orchestras and dance ensembles that entertained the bars, restaurants, hotels, casinos and parties in 1950s and 60s Portugal. This is a reunion with the origins of Pop in Portugal, but without nostalgia. On the contrary, Real Combo’s performances are a real party, where everyone’s encouraged to dance along. And it’s not by chance that dance is at the heart of this project. In the world today, dance fosters togetherness, sharing and conviviality.
Following a period dedicated to the musical legacy of Carmen Miranda with the show “Saudade de Você” and their appearance at the semi-finals of the 2017 Song Festival (where, as special guests, they revisited songs from history of the Festival), Real Combo Lisbonense will be returning to the dance format, with an eclectic setlist, packed with classics and lost gems of Portuguese music.
