Vodafone Mexefest 2017

We’re already feeling the beat of the heart

On November 24 and 25 we will feel the city’s heartbeat, as well as the new blood of emerging music running through its veins.

From Lisbon’s Coliseum to São Jorge, from Casa do Alentejo to Capitólio, and between the doors and windows of some other iconic rooms, we will listen to the best new things of national and international music, coming from talents who whisper in our ears.

May the beat begin.

We visit the melodic hip-hop of Oddisee, the feminine trap with IAMDDB, and the boom bap of CJ Fly and Nasty Niles, two sturdy names of the collective Pro Era, from Brooklyn, one of the most vibrant houses of American hip-hop. Representing Portugal’s hip-hop, we will have living legends like Valete, Halloween and Orelha Negra, who recently released the great record Orelha Negra III.

From hip hop we move onto pop. Yes, because during the festival there is no time for hesitations when it comes to making a musical choice. And, there, we will ourselves with Jessie Ware, who is back on stage with strength and vitality thanks to Glasshouse. Speaking of divas, we meet Sevdaliza – the Persian goddess of trip-hop who has one of the most interesting voices of today.

And who said that the heat will not reach Avenida da Liberdade? Fogo Fogo will shake the ground and give us funaná and dance music, Funkamente! brings us funk with records and Kumpania Algazarra will generate their typical party.

And leaving the festivities behind, we will cross paths with melancholy with Destroyer, who mixes soft rock with jazz, with tracks that break our heart, just like it happens with Cigarettes After Sex, a band playing sweet melodies of unquietness and loveless realms, promising that Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby.

Born in Sines, she lives in Lisbon but has a tropical heart that takes her constantly to the other side of the Atlantic and Latin culture. She works as a copywriter in advertising and devotes herself to writing in her spare time – and that's where she loses herself, to find herself.
