Portuguese music enjoying itself

A project where people singing and sharing their stories, memories and what they know by memory through the windows of their houses.

A Música Portuguesa a Gostar Dela Própria Association [Portuguese Music Loving Itself] is a Portuguese project, created by the director Tiago Pereira, aiming the to develop an awareness of the knowledge and importance of an often forgotten living patrimony of oral tradition: Songs, novels, short stories, sacred and profane practices, music, dance and also gastronomy.

Since this pandemic situation started, MPAGDP was obliged to stay home without recording but, through an agreement with a municipality in the center of Portugal MPAGDP started to record people singing and sharing their stories, memories and what they know by memory in the windows of their houses with all the safety procedures assured, a project called the “Portuguese music enjoying itself, at the window”, that brings hope and makes the older people feel happier and less alone.
