In this public conversation as part of the Lisboa Electronica festival, Carlos Maria Trindade detailed his experiences growing up in ’60s Lisbon, how he learned to express a Portuguese identity through music and what led him to venture further into a world of sound.
Carlos Maria Trindade is a musician and producer who found his voice in the tumultuous aftermath of Portugal’s revolution in 1974. As part of bands such as Corpo Diplomático, Heróis Do Mar and Madredeus, Trindade learned to adapt the rock sounds to Portuguese language and sensibilities before exploring the intersections of experimental, folk and ambient music, beginning in 1991 with the now cult album Mr. Wollogallu alongside Nuno Canavarro.
