O Westway LAB chama oito músicos, de diferentes partes do mundo, para uma semana de residência. É assim há seis anos. O festival junta os artistas em duplas e, no final do processo, cada parelha apresenta o resultado do seu trabalho num showcase no Café Concerto do Centro Cultural Vila Flor.
Yosune (PT) + Tribe Royal (CA)
Captain Boy (PT) + Violetta Zironi (IT)
João Pascoal (PT) + Lince (PT)
Beatriz Nunes (PT) + Mickey (AT)
At the end of the 1-week artistic residency in the Candoso Creation Centre, within the framework of Westway LAB, this year’s eight musicians will present the results of their collaboration. This 40-minute showcase is the only requirement placed by the organisation on the participating artists. But of the 20 musical encounters that the festival has fostered since 2014, several have given rise to new musical projects. The 2-day showcase therefore offers a unique first-hand opportunity to listen to new music that may make its mark in the future.
