Rodrigo Leão
On the occasion of the 500th Anniversary of the First Pact of Friendship and Trade between Portugal and the Kingdom of Siam, you are kindly invited to a concert by Rodrigo Leão performing “The Portuguese” on June 12 at 7:30 pm at Small Hall – Thailand Cultural Centre.
The Embassy of Portugal and the CAMÕES – Portuguese Cultural Centre in Bangkok, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Thailand Cultural Centre, with sponsorship of Siam Piwat, Icon Siam and Camões, Institute for Cooperation and Language, are proud to present, for the first time in Thailand, a performance by the internationally acclaimed Portuguese musician Rodrigo Leão. The performance “OS PORTUGUESES – THE PORTUGUESE” will mark the opening of the festivities that celebrate the long-lasting Thai-Portuguese relationship. 
This performance includes compositions sung in Portuguese along with the instrumental material written for the TV documentary series Portugal – A Social Portrait, a seven-episode documentary about the evolution of Portuguese society during the last 50 years. Critics describe Leão’s music as cinematographic, and he has collaborated on soundtracks for films and documentaries. He composed music for and performed in Wim Wenders’ Lisbon Story (1994), and he was the composer of the soundtrack for the Lee Daniels’ Oscar-nominated historical drama The Butler (2013) starring Forest Whitaker.
On stage, Rodrigo will be accompanied by the Mozambican singer Selma Uamusse and a line-up anchored in a string suit (violin, cello and viola), as well as a multi-instrumentalist set that will allow him play back the multiple sound environments of the original recordings.
