Sunset at the Castle – Marta Garrett & João Pedro Coelho

Sunset at Castelo de São Jorge is special. In summer, there’s nothing better than watching the sun go down while listening to good music. In July and August, the castle will host the second edition of this series of music evenings, bringing you Portuguese music and a wide range of musical genres, including jazz, world music, smooth jazz, funk, soul and pop. Join us on Friday evenings for a relaxing sunset and fabulous views over the city.

Canções de Ilha Deserta (Desert Island Discs)
Marta Garrett and João Pedro Coelho perform the songs they would take with them to a lump of rock in the middle of the ocean. These are songs of broken hearts; songs of longing and of hope; joyful, controversial and activist songs; songs which are odd and strange or light and beautiful, by composers including Chico Buarque, Fausto, Zeca Afonso, Pixinguinha, Gershwin and Duke Ellington.
Marta Garrett: vocals, ukulele and small percussion instruments.
João Pedro Coelho: piano and backing vocals.
