After four unstoppable years revolving around Portuguese music, with more than a thousand projects recorded in over 2300 videos and more than a dozen of documentaries, after earning the “Megafone” award, editing a CD for “NOS Discos” and hosting a weekly radio programme in Antena 1, the director Tiago Pereira brings to public “THE PEOPLE WHO STILL SINGS”. The series of 26 episodes, produced by “The Portuguese music liking itself” and aired on RTP2 (Portuguese Television), came to being after extensive recording sessions which strived to show the different faces of Portuguese music.

From the North to the South, Tiago Pereira and its team share the creativity of a people who does not want to be forgotten. Several musical traditions and practices are performed, with no staging. The stories of the craftsmen that build traditional instruments, such as gaitas-de-fole or adufes, are also part of this journey, maintaining alive the rural musical traditions of our country.

About the author

TRADISOM has a long and noteworthy editorial background. Here are some of its emblematic projects that show its impact in the musical world:

The Journey of Sounds, the official collection for the Portuguese pavilion in EXPO98, with 12 CD’s exploring the influence of the Portuguese music in the world. 

The Complete Filmography of Michel Giacometti, with 12 books accompanied by DVD’s and CD’s.

The Sons of East Timor, a special edition that was offered during the Independence Day of East Timor.

Cavaquinho.PT, book and CD of Júlio Pereira, one of the greatest interpreters of the instrument “cavaquinho”.

Ó Brigada, the complete discography of the Portuguese band Brigada Victor Jara in celebration of its 40th anniversary, which was crowd funded through this website and quickly sold out. 

Director of the series “THE PEOPLE WHO STILL STINGS” (O POVO QUE AINDA CANTA): Tiago PereiraDirector, documentary filmmaker, visualist, mentor of the project “The Portuguese music liking itself” and winner of the “Megafone” award in 2010 for the “Mission” category, Tiago Pereira has developed a unique style of documenting, collecting and combining images with movement. His films comprise of manifestations of intangible culture such as music, rituals and performances which explore the concept of tradition and collective memory. Some of his most awarded movies are "11 Burros Caem no Estômago Vazio" (2006), "Quem Canta Seus Males Espanta" (1998) and the most recent “Porque Não Sou o Giacometti Do Sec. XXI (2015). Tiago Pereira partnered up with Sílvio Rosado in the musical project “Sampladélicos”, where tradition and technology come together in a complex mixture of the past, present and future. He is also a radio presenter in Antena 1 for the program “The people who still sings”. In 2015, Tiago Pereira was awarded Man of the Year for GQ Portugal in the “Music” category.

Budget and due dates

The funding we are trying to obtain does not correspond to the total investment made in this edition. It is simply a way of minimizing costs in what we believe is a special and very important project for the preservation of our musical traditions in a digital form. The books distributed through PPL will be edited in 4 different colours and numbered from 1 to 500, totalling 2000 books. BUDGET: printing costs for the book, 8 DVDs included with each book, licensing paid to RTP, official stamps, copyright, design, collection of postcards, bags and marketing – 33,686,00 €.

    O POVO QUE AINDA CANTA - actualização

    Caros Apoiantes
    Apesar de já termos entrado em contacto individual com todos os nossos apoiantes do PPL, queremos deixar aqui expressa a nossa enorme satisfação por estarmos a aproximar-nos do dia de entrega das recompensas.
    Posso dizer-vos que o livro já está na tipografia e começará a ser enviado no dia 1 de Agosto.
    Posso garantir-vos que o livro vai ser uma obra de invejável qualidade, cuidadosamente preparado a todos os níveis com muito profissionalismo e rigor.
    Perdoem-me esta afirmação, mas ao fim de tantos anos de ligação à edição o bom gosto vai sendo apurado!
    Temos a certeza de que, à semelhança da anterior publicação "Ò BRIGADA- Discografia Completa da Brigada Victor Jara", que esgotou em 3 meses apenas, os 2000 exemplares numerados desta edição de "O POVO QUE AINDA CANTA" vai desaparecer num ápice.
    Bem hajam pelo vosso apoio e até daqui a uns dias.
    José Moças
