"Life is a selfie" - one evening with Salvador in Belém

Posted by eurovision on top on July 3, 2017 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

For the second consecutive night, the Cultural Center of Belém was crowded to listen to Salvador Sobral, in the town which him is considered a son, Lisbon. We were there, together with the public in which we could see people of all type, from families to pairs of grandparents or young adolescents. All gathered to listen to the new star.



Before the concert began a voice was heard, instead of the recording that normally remembers that you can not record sounds or images - it was Salvador himself saying that tonight he could not come. All night with this kind of jokes between song and song to the point of briefly making us wonder if we were in a stand up comedy. The good mood marked the whole concert. It was unnecessary to ask the public to disconnect their mobile phone, specially because in that Theatre, that is the most important in the city, or perhaps in the country, only a few dare to turn on the mobile. And in case you do it, a lady lights a flashlight in your face that will embarrass you enough.



The great hall of the CCB is the typical Theater where only the big artists can enter, from Jazz or World music to classical music. And there was Sobral. Two songs and the artist began to say ironically that "Fame is to be in a restaurant with the face full of pasta and you have to smile for a photo", and shouts "Life is a selfie". What problem do you have with technology? You will not change people's mind no matter what you tell them to do. Well, you need to understand the way Salvador thinks. He is probably not the kind of guy that can express himself by saying only a phrase. More its needed to understand him.



It may be immature and it does not like the new technologies but what he is living now after having won Eurovision in a country like Portugal can be supported. Portugal is the country where you can find Sara Tavares in a supermarket or Dulce Pontes on a terrace drinking coffee. And nothing happens, people respect them and they do not need to hide from fans.



But back to music, listening him in a live show is like listening to a CD. They could have recorded the concert and published it. On stage he was accompanied by 3 exceptional musicians, including Julio Resende, a piano master and a jazz musician. Thanks to his musicians and his vocal improvisations, his soft jazz becomes something pleasing to the ear and despite the half dozen songs Salvador conquered the public. The artist was surprised that the audience knew "Excuse me" by heart but his album is number one! People buy it! "Nem eu" was another song that the public sang all together. The interaction with the audience was constant and he made us sing and applaud. Salvador is not only a singer, he is one of those interpreters who can be called a true musician.



When he sang "Amar pelos dois" the audience surrendered. Before, he told us the story of the song and its passage through Eurovision: "I don't regret. I would have done it again!" And it is better to think like that because no matter what, Salvador will always be the winner of Eurovision from Portugal!


Is Conchita THE GREATEST SHOWMAN?

Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron´s film is titled THE GREATEST SHOWMAN!

As the name shows it is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

The Greatest Showman is scheduled to be released by 20th Century Fox on December 25, 2017 but our dear Conchita Wurst posted yesterday on the social media "Can't wait to share more about the special project I did for this film!"

What will it be?

So far, we can see a woman with beard in the trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baLQMcOVIPU

We expect to have more news very soon!

Iberian Divas do The Musicals

Posted by eurovision on top on June 28, 2017 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Simone the Oliveira (Portugal 65/69) and Paloma San Basilio (Spain 85) will take part in two very different Musicals as special moments for their careers.


Paloma San Basilio will be Norma Desmond on "Sunset Boulevard", the Spanish version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical that will premiere on December 27 in Tenerife. "Sunset Boulevard" is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber (with Don Black script ) based on Billy Wilder's film "Twilight of the Gods." It premiered in London in 1993 with Patti LuPone starring, and a year later appeared in Los Angeles and Broadway with Glenn Close in the lead role

The idea is that, after its Tenerife premiere, in the first months of 2018 a small tour of six Spanish cities will take place in September or October to open a season in a theater on the Gran Vía in Madrid.

In the 80's Paloma played the role of Evita in the Show with the same name.


Simone de Oliveira will take part in the Musical with her name and inspired on her but SIMONE, THE MUSICAL is much more than a musical in its own name, where its history, filled with characters like Ary dos Santos or Carlos do Carmo that also took part in Eurovision like author and singer, respectively. 

At age 79, Simone de Oliveira still has dreams to come true and many memories to share. From iconic themes such as "Desfolhada" or "Sol de Inverno", Simone will unveil herself and, once again, publicly surrender herself for what she believes, for what she feels like Destination, and makes it an example cherished by all the Portuguese.  

Simone, will premiere on september 23th at Lisbons Tivoli.
