The people who listen to André Henriques’ music know that the most beautiful journey runs between surprising memories and a blink of an eye, anticipating the most melodious future. When he was a child André would sleep under shelves filled with records – when he couldn’t sleep, instead of counting sheep, he would count vinyl record cases.
If we can say that these facts shaped his taste, we should also say that those musical landmarks were also responsible for his tireless search for his contemporary counterparts. And the BPM’s increase when the dance floor requires it, without losing the music’s crystal clear quality, without losing the conducting stream for that unique journey.
André Henriques has already performed at the Coliseu, was spotted on board of the Groove Boat at the Creamfields festival, at the Super Bock Super Rock festival and even at the Sumol Summer Fest festival. Swiss mountains have also summoned him, as well as the gardens of the Out Jazz festival. These references alone could suffice, but we can also add others – such as his presence at the Coliseu to open up for Mika, as well as the first part of Alicia Keys’ and Miley Cyrus’ concerts at the Meo Arena. He also performed at the Queima and the Latada in Coimbra (University Events). And there are few words that can describe his appearance at the RFM Somni. In parallel to all these contributions, he is also the resident DJ at the Radio Hotel on Saturdays. We are therefore caught up in André Henriques’ positive energy, his ability to surprise, and that glowing gaze that belongs to those who know they have the ability to make us feel music in such a way, making us live forever.
