Durante esta semana, neste blog, vai passar musica portuguesa 😉
This week I will feature some great musicians from Portugal. Rock music arrived in Portugal in the late 1950’s. Portugal had a vibrant underground progressive rock scene in the 1970’s. The scene hit mainstream in 1980 with the release of Ar de Rock by Rui Veloso, which was the first popular Portuguese rock album. During the mid 80’s synth pop became more prevalent in Portuguese rock and the 90’s saw the rise of the punk rock scene. Today there are many great alternative artists and a lot of them sing in English to gain international recognition.
