Congratulations Portugal!

Salvador Sobral is a singer who manages to put across a unique musical sensibility and magnetism on stage. He  represented Portugal in Kyiv with the song Amar Pelos Dois (For The Both Of Us), penned by his sister Luisa.

Salvador Sobral studied Psychology, but his overwhelming passion for music took over and he has proved to be one of the great promises in the Portuguese and Spanish music scene.

While he lived in the United States and in Barcelona, where he studied at the prestigious school Taller de Musics, he carried out several musical projects: he composed for himself but at the same time he created audacious performances inspired by Chet Baker, took in bossa-nova and lent his songs the sweet sonorities of Latin America.
His voice, always in the right place and over which he has full, flawless control, and the magnetism with which he wins people over when he’s on stage, have awarded him the best reviews from the specialised press, colleagues and, most importantly, from the ultimate judge; the public.

Excuse Me (2016), his debut album, was a musical co-production of Júlio Resende, Leonardo Aldrey and Salvador himself.

About the composer
Born in Lisbon 29 years ago, Luísa Sobral is among the most important songwriters and singers of the new generation of Portuguese musicians and she is also one of those rare cases of ”love at first song”. She presented herself to the public in 2011, with her debut album The Cherry On My Cake, which was surprisingly mature for such a young artist. It was a reflection of four years abroad as a distinguished student at the Berklee College of Music, where she graduated in 2009.
Many times she had to play and sing in American restaurants and bars to help cover costs, which turned out to be decisive real-time education for her stage career.

In Luisa, her fourth album (2016), there is a stronger bond with her listeners, showing the artist has entered a new level of creative maturity, ahead of her age, as always. Luísa states she wouldn’t change the turmoil of her life for anything in this world. The stage is her home. And she kindly invites us to visit her. And makes us feel at home.

Here are the lyrics!

Robin Bengtsson vidare till final i ESC.

Robin Bengtsson gick vidare till final i ESC trots ljudproblem .

ALL OVER PRESS

Jag höll mig vaken under Finlands låt och även la ut 3,60 på en SMS-röst på den finska låten bara för att jag är född och uppvuxen där även om finländare verkar göra a l l t  för att inte vinna. Och nej, det fanns inte bättre låt heller som borde ha skickats därifrån. Den här var den bästa låten! Tredje året i rad nu som Finland inte är med i finalprogrammet.

Men grattis Robin! Nu håller jag tummarna på lördag!

Robin Bengtsson – 17 år?

 

Robin Bengtsson berättar på sin Insta att han har rakat sig och att han tycker sig  se ut som 17-åring. Jag vet inte det, jag tycker det ser mera ut som att han trycker ut något.

Just det, snart är det dags för ESC i Ukraina! Undrar om Ellen B hejar på honom. De två hade ju en fling förut.
