Finland tour in November with Maria Kalaniemi!

Stockholm Lisboa Project will be touring in Finland with the great accordeonplayer Maria Kalaniemi in November 2015.

Maria Kalaniemi is one of the most well respected accordeonplayers in the world. Her lyrical, sensitive and intense way of playing has became her trademark and she has many fans around the globe. Stockholm Lisboa Project met Maria back in 2008 and it was clear from the first moment that our music has many things in common. For instance, Portuguese saudade seems to have strong connections to the Finnish and Swedish mentality.

Very welcome to join us for a Finnish accordion-fado-journey, it will be unique!

We are still booking consertdates, check our calendar for more info.

Best regards / SLP

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you, dear fans of Stockholm Lisboa Project!

2014 has been a year with great concerts and intense musical moments for SLP. It has also been a year of change for us. The times they are a changing, also for the people in SLP. Micaela Vaz and Filip Jers has decided to quit our project. Micaela will focus on her growing family and keep singing/performing near her house in Portugal. Filip will focus on jazz and go on touring with other musical projects. We wish Micaela and Filip all the best with their new goals in life and profession!

During the fall 2014, we have been searching for new musicians to keep on the musical journey with Stockholm Lisboa Project. Finally, we have found two amazing musicians who have also become very good friends: We are proud to present the singer Rita Maria from Lisbon and the saxophone-player/singer Alice Andersson from Delsbo in Sweden!

Winter and spring 2015 will be a rehearsing period for SLP. When summer of 2015 comes, SLP will be ready to give you new timbre, new grooves, new stories and melodies. Right now, we are planning for a tour in Sweden in the end of July 2015. Stockholm Lisboa Project will also continue touring in Europe, we just can't wait to get started! Take care and see you soon everybody!

Best regards / SLP

New CD out: "Aurora"

”Fado belongs to the night and lasts until Aurora arrives”

Album Released in Sweden 20 september 2012

Stockholm Lisboa Project is releasing their third full-length album, Aurora. Stockholm Lisboa Project works according to their own slogan "fado, polska and beyond". They blend traditional and contemporary music from Sweden and Portugal. Sometimes they combine the music from their countries in the same song. The Swedish polska and Nordic melancholy meets passionate fado and folk songs from Portugal. The text is often about broken love, longing for friends who sailed on the Atlantic and dreams about the future. New member of the Stockholm Lisboa Project since 2011 is the Portuguese singer Micaela Vaz. Her warm alto voice brings a timbre that strikes the listeners.

Since the international breakthrough with their last album Diagonal (2009), they are today one of the most booked folk/world music groups in Sweden. Their international recognitions include among others the German Record Critics' Award ("Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik").

Price: 20€ inclusive post expenses
