Pedro Mafama

_ Pedro Mafama is setting a unique narrative. The consistent mix of several electronic and urban references with the well pronounced Portuguese traditional music, serve as a musical bed to present day, vivid and perceptible texts and songs, of today's stories from any Portuguese street today

If in 2021 the album 'Por Este Rio Abaixo' managed to build a readable narrative throughout Portugal, touring the main national stages (NOS Alive, NOS Primavera Sound, FMM (Sines), ID No Limits, Festival F), performances in Spain and France, and even winning the Prémios Autores 2022 SPA - Melhor Tema de Música Popular (Best Popular Music Theme) with the song Estaleiro, now it's time for a new step.

"Estava No Abismo Mas Dei Um Passo Em Frente" is available on all digital platforms. After "Estrada", the debut track from the artist's new album, which brings together the Alentejo cante (Mineiros de Aljustrel) with Portuguese rumba on a journey through the roads of his universe, and "Preço Certo", a track inspired by traditional "baile" music, filmed precisely on the mythical Portuguese TV show - Preço Certo - and featuring the participation of the entire cast of the show, including the iconic presenter Fernando Mendes, follows "Marcha Bonita", where Pedro Mafama is inspired by the city of Lisbon and sings a popular march to it. In the music video, the artist takes on the role of the driver, responding to direct requests for trips via Instagram.

In this new album, Pedro Mafama shows the result of years of study of Portuguese popular music, focusing on "bailes", marches, and portuguese rumbas, with compositions of his own, celebrating the present moment.
