The Chamarrita & more: A Música Portuguesa a gostar dela própria

We love this video of the Chamarrita, a dance and music style in the Azores, nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. This one was shot on Pico Island by MPAGDP, which stands for a música portuguesa a gostar dela própria, a project created to celebrate and archive the variety of music made in Portugal.

What a wonderful project! There are many videos, almost all shot outside to create an energy for the music and to show the world as a giant stage.

We enjoyed these videos, as well: Pauliteiros de Miranda and É p’ra Amanhã:


There are so so so many other excellent videos to check out… and enjoy more Portugal in the archives.
