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.
