FANDANGO was born through a mix of electronic based music and typical Portuguese instruments (accordion and portuguese guitar) - the result of a junction between Gabriel Gomes and Luis Varatojo, two very experienced musicians, former members of bands such as Setima Legiao and Madredeus (Gabriel) and Peste & Sida and A Naifa (Luis). FANDANGO’s songs are an exotic mix of portuguese melodies and electronic beats, that can make the perfect soundtrack for a sunset in the west coast, or the power tune for a late night dance in Lisbon.
The diversity of rhythms and sound elements captures the soul of portuguese music, in a colourful harmony with the synthetiser's layers and drum machine patterns, that takes you on a trip around the country's beautiful landscapes and culture. Quoting a newspaper's review: “FANDANGO is a tourist guide to dance”.
