Creative and Production director Carlos Seixas says, “For the twenty years I have been its creative director, FMM Sines never had the ‘headliner’ category so I’m reluctant to make highlights. That being said, I will mention seven acts that make me very happy to bring to FMM Sines 2018. From the young generation: Scúru Fitchádu, from Lisbon’s Afro scene; Maryam Saleh, Maurice Louca & Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, experimental trio from Cairo; and the ‘imaginary folk’ of Slovenia’s Sirom. From the ‘legends’ quota: Oliver Mtukudzi and Bulimundo, icons of Zimbabwe and Cape Verde. And finally, Maravillas de Mali and Havana Meets Kingston, supergroups where old and young generations get together.” fmmsines.pt
