Trans-European Indie Express

Stop #5: Portugal

In a desperate attempt to escape the gloomy Swedish winter, this train is heading straight to Portugal!

By blending modern indie rock with influences from traditional Portuguese fado and African music genres like kudoro, Portugal is currently home to some of the most experimental sounds in Europe. Get to know some of the Portuguese indie jewels and learn about the history behind Lisbon's alternative music scene in today’s episode.

All music featured in the show, plus many other artists that we couldn't fit into the hour, is available in our curated Spotify playlist:

The train to Portugal departures this Saturday at 4pm, from platform K103! Can’t make it? Jump on board at any time on our Mixcloud:

All aboard the Trans-European Indie Express! This show was created as Europe went into its second covid lockdown in the fall of 2020, leaving small, local bands without gigs and festivals - and leaving us without the possibility to travel. Therefore, we will attempt to travel through Europe as digital music tourists, exploring different countries by tuning in to their local, independent music scene and discover artists that are largely unknown outside of their home countries.
