Four artists confirmed to perform in the Vodafone Blackout Room

This year, the Vodafone Mexefest will offer a unique experience with four concerts taking place in Screen 3 of the São Jorge Cinema, in a very special format. In the Vodafone Blackout Room, the concerts will take place literally in the dark, and for this highly sensory experience four artists who have accepted the challenge are already confirmed: Akua Naru, Castello Branco, Bombino and Benjamim.

With different styles, on November 27 we will have Akua Naru and his soul charged with hip-hop, and Rio Castello Branco, possessed of a gorgeous melodic lyricism flooded with folk and pop.

More intimately, on November 28 Benjamin will perform songs from his first album in Portuguese, the fêted “Auto Rádio”.On the same day, in Agadez, Niger, Omara “Bombino” Moctar performs rock with much Africa in it and in a dark room, where the experience of the powerful sound of the musician is expected to be extraordinary.
