Sons D'Aquém Mar

Ancient Music Festival “Sons D’Aquém Mar” in Lagoa

Three concerts inspired by the Portuguese Discoveries take place on November 27 and December 4 & 8.

“Sons D’Aquém Mar” (Sounds from this Sea), an Ancient Music Festival, is returning for its third edition with three concerts in the Municipality of Lagoa. The shows are scheduled to start at 17h00 on November 27 (Quinta da Palmeirinha), December 4 (Porches Church) and 8 (Carlos do Carmo Auditorium in Lagoa).

The complete programme consists of 6 concerts (three in Lagoa and three in Lagos) that advocate a journey in different styles and languages ​​of historically informed music and whose starting point is the interdependence of the Algarve with the sea as a region intrinsically linked to the Portuguese Discoveries.

For its third edition, Sons D’Aquém Mar Ancient Music Festival relies on harpsichordist Elsa Mathei’s Artistic direction.

The Project is co-produced by Questão Repetida – Associação Cultural (Lagos) and Associação Artis XXI (Lagoa). It is supported by the Municipality of Lagoa, Municipality of Lagos, Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve and the Tourism of the Algarve to create a networked programme between the towns of Lagoa and Lagos.
