As part of the public programmes for the exhibition Faro-Oeste, by Pauliana Valente Pimentel, and to mark the National Day of the Roma Peoples, the Municipal Galleries bring to the Quadrum Gallery, on 24 June, the show Música Cigana Camões Yanomami / A Soma de Todxs.

The surprising combination between the poetry of Camões, texts by Davi Kopenawa (Yanomami indigenous leader) and Roma Music creates a communicating composition between original expressions. The conviviality of plural learning is vivifying. This is community. Composing music and poetry to contemplate the unique nature of the world. The firm determination to end the violence of exclusion. A group for contemplating the fusion that never stops revealing nature.

La Família Gitana are Ari Monteiro, Ângelo Quintino, Rui Marques, Hugo Fernandes and Ângelo Giménes, who, in addition to the blood ties that unite them as a family, make heritage and tradition a daily pleasure. António Poppe is a poet and visual artist, or perhaps something permanently in transit between the two, in the implied act of awareness of the being-together-in-the-present, or if meditation were not also a fundamental part of the artist he is.
