Undergraduate Lunch with Portuguese Band Deolinda
September 21, 2012
Whether singing of unfinished love or the politics of economic austerity, the Portuguese band Deolinda has won the public's attention for its blending of traditional and contemporary music. Its debut album, The Song Next Door, quickly went platinum and has been described as capturing "the tension between old and new Lisbon, between traditional fado and the future." Deolinda was in Bloomington to perform at the Friday and Saturday night Lotus World Music Festival showcases.
