Description

Land of sticky cheese and hairy men, fish and egg cakes, Alentejo gave a few good things to the world, but still didn’t rest. The world needs one more music festival, the thoughtful Portuguese pondered. And there it was in all of its splendor, the Festival Músicas do Mundo, or FMM or The Festival of World Music as it is bashfully named. The event has been organized since 1999 in Sines, a Medieval castle-city retaining most of its ye olde charm. The venue of the festival is the city’s historic centre, the medieval castle, the Sines Art Centre and the Vasco da Gama beach. The event is very eclectic in terms of musical styles and it accommodates genres ranging from traditional to jazz, from folk to blues, from tango to reggae, and from classical music to fusion.
