Singer, songwriter, writer, actor (in theatre and cinema) and director, Sérgio Godinho is, to quote one of his classic songs, the true “man of the seven instruments”.
However, in an artistic career of enviable longevity, which spans over 50 years, it was his work as a singer-songwriter that made him an icon capable of bringing together generations of different ages, experiences and aspirations around his songs.
Many were the songs written, the duets with prominent artists of national and international music, a vast discography and numerous tributes. In 2020 he launches a single “O novo normal” and later in the year, the album “Ao vivo no São Luiz” recorded with the Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra.
The concert recorded in 2018, revisits the artist’s classics and songs from his last album “Nação Valente”, edited in 2018, with a new approach resulting from the happy synchrony between the artist and the arrangements of the Lisbon Metropolitan Orchestra.
This was the first time that Sérgio Godinho edited an album with orchestra. This edition marks the beginning of the celebrations of the artist’s 50-year career and includes orchestral versions of the hits “Grão da Mesma Mó”, “Com Um Brilhozinho Nos Olhos” and “O Primeiro Dia”.
