Born in 1934, in Santarém (Portugal), Silva Palmeira is a painter, ceramist and sculptor and exhibits since 1957. He’s represented in several national and foreign collections.

In 2006 two exhibitions were organised by Portuguese Centre for Fine Art Screen Printing and Brazil House to celebrate his 50-year career.

His work, mainly landscape painting, contains a visible illustrative part, with figures built in geometrical plans, flat colours, well defined shapes, and light/shadow contrasts switching abruptly.

In Portugal, he’s represented in Civilian Government Offices in Évora and Santarém, Tourism Comission in Nazaré, Angra Heroismo Museum, Sesimbra Gallery in Ritz Hotel (Lisbon), Portimão Gallery (Algarve), Martins Correia Sculptor City Hall Museum (Golegã), Armindo Teixeira Lopes City Hall Museum (Mirandela), Gan Insurance (Lisbon), Madeira Country Press (Funchal), Caixa Geral Depósitos Modern Art Museum (Lisbon), Portuguese Centre for Fine Art Screen Printing (Lisbon), Montepio Geral Bank Collection.

Campo Pequeno – The VenueCampo Pequeno 4-10-2007 003

Campo Pequeno is one of the most exquisite venues in Lisbon city center. Built in 1892 this uniquely beautiful bullfight arena is a landmark of Lisbon and in special occasions can be transformed in a concert hall, such as for the Unforgeatable Fado Night during the Lisbon Convention.

One cannot enter Campo Pequeno and ignore that this is indeed one of the most breathtaking venues Portugal can offer.

Bellow the venue, underground there is a shoping mall with small shops where you can find almost everything as well as a big square for food & beverage that offers to it visitors a place to relax, eat and shop.

Fado – Intangible Cultural Heritage

Fado is a unique Portuguese music style. Fado songs are usually performed by a solo singer (fadista) and accompanied by a classical guitar and a Portuguese guitar. Fado was distinguished as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2011.

Fado is a way for the Portuguese people to express their feelings about various topics with a unique sound worldwide. This is an experience not to be missed!

carminho_2Carminho – The Fado Singer

I might not know who you are, but I know who I am.”

And things could be no different, when someone who sings these words is someone who has always perceived Fado to be her destiny, but who was only able to openly admit it after she truly understood who she was.

In 2009, Carminho sang “Fado”. This was her fado, the one she owned since an early age, when she listened to her parents’ records, when she witnessed the gathering of fado singers in her own house and when, still a teenager, she began to sing in the Taverna do Embuçado. This “Fado” was the title of her first album, which was one of the most awaited albums in the new generation of fado singers: for those who had already heard Carminho, her talent was obvious, but they had to wait – until she finished her graduation, until she travelled the world, until she knew who she really was.

Carminho is without any doubt one of the best fado singers ever.
