Canadian singer/songwriter Tammy Weis has teamed up with Italian guitarist-composer Antonio Forcione for a unique collaboration which promises to be a highlight for the musical calendar. Sharing the stage will be Nigerian Cellist Jenny Adejayan and Brazilian Percussionist Alua Nascimento.
It was amongst the paintings and illustrations of a contemporary artist at the "Pharmacy" gallery in the heart of Alfama that triggered the inspiration for this incredible project. The art focused on the image of Lisbon's great poet Fernando Pessoa and acted as a catalyst for the Canadian vocalist to collaborate with musicians in Lisbon and embark on creating a sound that matched poetry starting from Pessoa's early years in South Africa. Tammy got together with the world acclaimed guitar master Antonio They have constructed a folk oriented soundscape around 12 Pessoa poems drawing on the magical atmosphere of Lisbon's mythical area Alfama.
They will be showcasing the songs in Casa Fernando Pessoa in Lisbon on March 4th and the London showcase will be at the wonderful 606 Club. The album will be recorded in Lisbon using mainly Portuguese musicians and is planned for release in 2017.
