Banda Monte Cara

Summer Garden 2022

Event Slider

Opening in 1976, Monte Cara was not only the first Lisbon club dedicated to African culture; it was (and still is) a true laboratory of the Cape Verdean musical movement. In homage of this space, Alcides Nascimento, Leonel Almeida, Manuel Paris, Zé António and Toy Paris formed the Monte Cara Band to record an EP which recovers part of the repertoire performed by these same musicians on Monte Cara’s stage.
