Musician and composer Orlando Barreto, better known as Pantera, was born on the island of Santiago, Cape Verde, in 1967 and left us at the age of 33. His daughter Darlene - who was only 6 years old at the time of her father's death - has carried out, in recent years, an in-depth research on the life and work of Pantera; It was in this context that he challenged us to pay him a tribute.

Pantera broke new ground in the music of his country. Cape Verde and its people pulsed in his voice: exploring the forms of tradition, he gave birth to a poetry full of love, insight and assertiveness. On these traits we find our own vision, through the experiences we were able to share with him, as a friend and as an artist. In addition to this reunion in the revival of his creativity and affection, we followed a path of exploration, diving into his land, customs and culture, while projecting them in a contemporary world where he also positioned himself.

This is, therefore, a show built on the wanderings of memory. And it is, above all, an intense and dynamic experience of collaboration. Each of the performers establishes a personal relationship in remembering their own experience and gives us a creative wealth that becomes the value and meaning of this tribute. Between the much that remains to be done and the much that remains to be said, this is our hug for Pantera.
