In episode three of Clandestino Podcast, we meet guitarist and singer Lula Pena. Her music has been praised by the likes of Caetano Veloso, while others describe her voice as a female version of Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits. Traces of French chanson, bossa nova and Greek traditional music can be heard in Lula Pena’s songs, blending with the music she once became known for: the Portuguese fado, songs of loss and longing, once sung by sailors far away on the outskirts of the Portuguese Empire. Markus Görsch interviewed Lula Pena just before her concert arranged by Clandestino Festival at Folkteatern in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In the first episode ever of the Clandestino Podcast, we meet musician Sara Parkman, who talks about her work as co-curator for this year’s edition of Clandestino Festival. Sara gives us a brief introduction to the artists she selected for Hagakyrkan on June 7, when Clandestino arranges a “musical novella”, instead of the regular festival program. She also talks about her own experiences this spring, characterized by quarantine and canceled concerts. This podcast is in Swedish.
