"Um Porto Para o Mundo" - 2nd CD TUNA ACADÉMICA DE BIOMÉDICAS
Tuna Académica de Biomédicas is an Associação Juvenil de Interesse Cultural (Juvenile Organization of Cultural Interests) based in Oporto, Portugal, which has been developing several works in the popular portuguese music field since 2003. The member of this Tuna are some working professionals and students in the areas of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Aquatic Sciences of ICBAS - Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar (Biomedical Sciences Institute Abel Salazar) from the University of Porto, adding up to 100 members.
Since 2003 that we distinguish ourselves for wanting to do more and better. Knowing beforehand that there is no other student environment in the world like the one found here in Portugal, it is our aim and our mission to spread the portuguese music and culture while creating unique friendships and grow up as people in society.
In this sense, on its 13 years of existence, our group has been growing in number and quality. In between countless prizes won in Tunas' Festivals across Portugal and even Spain, we also organize our own festival: "TABernal", which already holds 8 successful editions. Besides this, we've already done 4 european tours, visiting Spain, France, Switzerland and Italy and 2 nacional tours. However, we are aware that for our contribution to the rich portuguese music portfolio to be definitive, nothing is more relevant than an album (CD) to present our work. For this end, in 2005 we released our first album, "Memórias de um Tuno" (Memories of a Tuno). This CD has already 4 editions and thousands of copies sold.
Therefore, with all the constant renovation that our group inevitably suffers, it was necessary to gather and perpetuate the most important works from the last years in a 2nd CD.
This CD, which we explain as a trip around the world beginning in the marvelous city of Oporto, is a result of great voluntary effort and dedication of everyone in the group and it holds 10 songs of a great cultural diversity associated to such a portuguese tradition as it is the music of a Tuna.
The trip starts in Oporto, our home, with 4 original songs which refer to our city and to the life of a college student and a Tuno. The journey continues to Coimbra and to the unparalleled José Afonso, moving to Miranda do Douro with a unique in the genre song in the language "mirandês", and not finishing without going further away with adaptations of famous songs of the Balkans, Italy, Spain and Brasil, always with a touch of romance and joy that is characteristic of us.
We always try to innovate and, therefore, we will be releasing our 1st Premium Edition in a material with great history in Portugal, cork, therefore hoping to create a unique quality image in the spread of this culture that we are so proud of.
