Summer music festivals are very popular in Portugal and are seen as a rite of passage for many young people. Learn more about the experience of taking part in these festivals.
Discover the beautiful ballad that unexpectedly swept Europe off its feet in the Eurovision 2017 song contest: “Amar Pelos Dois”, by Salvador Sobral. After 53 years of competing, this marks Portugal’s first victory ever! With the help of a special guest, Rui and Joel explore the meaning behind these Portuguese lyrics as well as what set this performance apart from all the rest.
Note: We only used a short clip of the song to avoid waking up the copyright police, so make sure to check out Salvador’s full performance with his sister, (and composer, Luísa Sobral): https://youtu.be/z5VUti3kVIo?t=4m13s
As we promised, an episode with an article read at two speeds. Enjoy!
The first episode with dialogue only! Rui calls Avó Odete and Luís about the Oscars.
