Concertos Andanças'2013
19 TO 25 AUG'13
Andanças is a festival for the promotion of popular music and dance as the primary means of learning and exchange between generations, knowledge and cultures. Keeping up-to-date, Andanças aims to revive the social habits of “living” the music and to resume the practice of popular dance events. Andanças implements this, focusing on traditional dances, from Portugal or the rest of the world, always considering the recovery of musical and choreographic traditions, mixed with contemporary elements.

Thus it is possible to learn more then fifty different types of dances:
This results from the synergy between people around the world, who are eager to share their knowledge. From Portuguese, African and American dances to the various European dances: From Hungarians, gypsies, Baltics, Belgians, Italians, Basques, Catalans, from Poitou, the Balkan, Galicia, the Mediterranean region, etc. Besides encouraging the curiosity for diversity, Andanças is trying to remind, that the popular music is (also) a synonym of identity and often a symbol of survival.

Many Portuguese groups, some of them born during Andanças, come to the festival to present their new discographic projects: It is important to stay tuned and keep pace with new tendencies in dance music.
