Pedro Mafama


Pedro Mafama is creating a unique narrative. The consistent mix of various electronic and urban references with traditional Portuguese music serves as a musical bed for current texts and songs, vivid and perceptible, of today's stories from any Portuguese street.

In 2021, the artist released his first album, "Por Este Rio Abaixo", where he managed to build a narrative that was readable throughout the country, touring the main national stages, performing in Spain and France, and also winning the 2022 SPA Authors Awards - Best Popular Music Theme (" Estaleiro").

"Estava no Abismo Mas Dei Um Passo Em Frente", his latest album (2023), includes "Estrada", which combines the cante alentejano (Mineiros de Aljustrel) with Portuguese rumba, "Preço Certo", a song inspired by traditional music and "Marcha Bonita", where Pedro Mafama is inspired by the city of Lisbon and sings a popular march to it.

In this album, Pedro Mafama shows the result of years of studying Portuguese popular music , focusing on Portuguese dances, marches and rumbas, with compositions of his own, celebrating the current moment.

Also available is "Estava No Abismo Mas Dei Um Passo Em Frente 2.0", a deluxe version with two new songs by Pedro Mafama, "Sem Ti and "Abismo", with which the artist closes the cycle of his second album.
