After 25 years, "A Fuga" takes place, the first recorded and edited CD by Gatunos.
For the past two years, Gatunos have been recording and editing their first record. This one, entitled "A Fuga", is the result of the effort and work of all those who are part of the 25 years of history of this Tuna.
Among original and adapted themes, this CD is filled with good music.
A CD recorded with the help of our rehearsal man Samuel Pereira (graduated in Music by ESMAE - variant in composition) and in a studio, built by Gatunos, at the Escola Superior de Media Artes e Design.
Seeing this CD published is a way to eternalize our work in a physical format, which takes our music to those who support us.
By acquiring a work of art that remains for the later ones, you are contributing to perpetuate these academic traditions!
It is a record of the students and the two cities that host Campus II of the Politécnico do Porto, Vila do Conde and Póvoa de Varzim.
