Guest Artist: Pedro Augusto
Oct 19 to 21, 2015 – E.B. 2.3. das Naus, Lagos


Exploration of different approaches to musical composition and, above all, to the way we listen to and even play our instruments.
We will look at them and discover other sounds, using less conventional techniques and ideas, always with an eye to the history and evolution of world music.
The work includes an informal presentation at the end of the workshop.
