Norberto Lobo has been one of the most cherished musicians in the country for the last two decades. He is a guitarist whose work has revealed an uncommon minutia, an inexhaustible sense of discovery and creativity throughout several albums and countless live performances. There is a special richness in his creations, from the albums “Pata Lenta” or “Muxama”, that already belong to our imaginary, to the risk taken when exploring new paths with a band (like in the recent album “Estrela”) or in collaborations like Montanhas Azuis, side by side with Bruno Pernadas and Marco Franco.
Relying on the fingerpicking of the American tradition, an heritage left by artists like John Fahey or Robbie Basho, but also on the melodic purity of Carlos Paredes, on the free harmony of jazz, on the hypnosis attained by ragga and other genres aiming at ascetism, Norberto Lobo’s music is profoundly his own, an ever-lasting and fascinating quest for new forms. Witnessing him playing live is an incredibly special event, a magical glimpse into his creations. This will be the chance to hear him reminiscing and playing classics but also to gaze into what the future holds.
