Join us for this new intimate musical performance

Summer in Vale do Lobo wouldn't be the same without the highly anticipated intimate open-air concerts and this year's programme promises to truly surprise and dazzle with new and exceptional concerts in the welcoming setting of the Vale do Lobo Tennis Academy! 

In a new lounge area specially developed for this purpose, overlooking the tennis courts and the surrounding pinewood, the concerts take place in a very relaxed and informal concept that appeals to all family and ages. The diversified musical programme brings together exceptional quality formations and artists with distinct genres that include samba, fado, jazz, soul, classical and pop.

VALE DO LOBO MUSIC SESSIONS 2023 | Intimate musical performance by João Frade Jazz Trio

Within this year's summer music sessions at the resort, João Frade invites Marito Marques and Cícero Lee to compose his jazz trio to provide a simply memorable musical evening.

João Frade is a musician from the Algarve with a full career of participations in some of the most important projects developed in Portugal and beyond, alongside names like Maria João and Mário Laginha, Mariza, Pedro Jóia, Lura, Jorge Pardo and Munir Hossn.

Musical Director of Mariza's shows, he accompanies her in all her concerts and has already won numerous awards throughout his career, including world accordion champion.

In a surprising jazz trio, João Frade, Michael Olivera and Yarel Hernandez promise great moments of jazz, musicality, and talent. This trio also counts on the support of a rhythm section to give greater mobility and flexibility to their compositions, which are often simple melodies, but with the use of more sophisticated harmonies and less common rhythmic patterns.

The musician offers a unique and fresh approach to the accordion, making each show a unique and unpredictable experience. The trio's complicity and energy led by João Frade with the participation of the Cuban rhythm section resident in Madrid are undeniably an inevitable mark of this line-up.

Marito Marques and Cícero Lee seek constant dialogue, in a dynamic of proposals to the soloist without ever losing focus on the balance. The influence of the Latin American and Mediterranean musical universe is very present in the sound of this trio that starts from a matrix that João Frade called "Creative Portuguese Music".

This event is part of the Vale do Lobo 2023's diversified programme of intimate concerts, bringing together amazing quality artists in an exclusive outdoor musical performance, with a limited number of participants, in the brand-new welcoming lounge setting area overlooking the Vale do Lobo Tennis Academy courts.

"Vale do Lobo Summer Intimate Concerts" were specially created to provide the resort's clients and visitors with true cultural, social and leisure moments during the summer months, in an sunset atmosphere of total relaxation for all the family.
