Paraplegic sailor takes to the sea

Concert under the stars

Music group Quadro Nuevo from Germany will be performing a concert entitled ‘Songs of a Grand Voyage’ in the church square of Igreja de Santa Maria de Ourique, Alentejo, on June 29 at 8pm.

Quadro Nuevo is described as the European answer to the Argentine tango. Arabesques, Balkan swing, ballads, daredevil improvisations, the melodies of old Europe and the lightness of the Mediterranean merge into fabulous sounds of joyous colour.

The Quartet’s venues are as diverse as the roots of their music and are not limited to concert halls and festivals.

Quadro Nuevo’s virtuosi are just as much at home busking on the piazzas of southern Europe or as a night-time tango band, enticing audiences to dance.

Tickets, costing €15 per person, include a buffet and drinks. To reserve a seat, please email [email protected]
