About the author
The Academic Tuna of the Faculty of Law of the University of Porto (Tuna Académica da Faculdade de Direito da Universidade do Porto - TAFDUP) was founded in November 1998, catapulted by their member's desire to reconcile the passion for music with the dynamic spirit so characteristic of the university student. The Faculty of Law of the University of Porto (FDUP) had just been founded three years prior, and until the year of 2006 the first elements of TAFDUP consecrated it as one of the most prominent academic groups within the school, beginning to spread what would later be designated as the "Elite Spirit".
In 2007, the new generations of TAFDUP gave a new direction to the group, starting to build the "Tuna de Elite Project". The infectious spirit, both on and off stage, which was already identifiable within TAFDUP, was combined with a desire to achieve new and more challenging goals.
TAFDUP began to spread its music all over the country, stepping on stages such as Coliseu do Porto, Coliseu Micaelense, Theatro Circo or the Gil Vicente Academic Theater. Summer tours, which reached across borders, also became a cornerstone, and took TAFDUP throughout neighboring Spain, from the capital Madrid, to Catalonia, southern Spain and Galicia.
TAFDUP's most recent history is characterized by the realization of designs that had long been part of its imagination.
Firstly, the organization of two editions of TUNx, an innovative conference of tunas that set out to alter what is the traditional view of the ordinary citizen on Academic Tunas.
Then, in April 2016, it was with great pride that TAFDUP released their first album, "Tuna de Elite", featuring the entire repertoire built over the last few years.
Last but not least, on April 1st, 2017, TAFDUP wrote the most beautiful page in its entire history with the organization of their first Festival of Tunas, the INTENSO - I Festival de Tunas de Elite, at the Porto Colosseum, a huge success.
