Fado Bicha (PT)
Fado Bicha is a musical and activist project composed by Lila Fadista (vocals) and João Caçador (electric guitar and other instruments). The project, in all its aspects (thematic, lyrical, visual, musical), is based on a premise of subversion of the heteronormative rule. Even more so when the reference matrix and the subject on which they work is fado, a conservative musical style nurtured by a traditionalist medium. Through the alteration of poems already sung and the creation of new ones, spaces are created for the experimentation of non-normative narratives regarding gender and sexuality. It’s fado right down to the marrow, intense and torn, and it’s fag because it uses subversion as a language of identities so little represented.
