Tickets are available at the Sava Center cash desk and all other outlets in the Eventim.rs network. Prices range from 1,490 to 3,290 dinars. All information and reservations can be obtained by calling 011/2662020 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dulse Ponteš is one of the most renowned Portuguese artists with 9 albums sold in millions of copies with numerous compilation editions. Audiences around the world are recognized by her famous interpretation of the song “Canção do Mar” – which has become the most performed Portuguese song of all time. In her career, she co-operated with Sezaria Evoor, José Carreras, Carlos Nunjes, Yorgos Dalaras, Andrea Bocelli, Enio Morikone and many others.
With his album “Lagrimas”, Dulse Pontez is rediscovering fado, when he was forgotten and when a new generation of musicians were not interested in him. This is the album that has remained one of the best-selling albums of all time in Portugal. The new great popularity of fad, which began in the first decade of the 21st century, can not be imagined without the decisive contribution of the largest Portuguese diva Dulse Ponteš. It combines a traditional fado with contemporary styles and looks for new musical forms. Her music is not only inspired by the Iberian music tradition, but also by Arabic, African and Brazilian sounds.
Co-operation with legendary composer Eniom Morikone is rounded up on the album “Focus”, as a joint album signed by both artists. The album has achieved incredible success, as well as the next double CD “A brisa do coração”, which was live recorded at the Coliseum in Porto. Dulse Pontez is releasing the new album “Peregrinacao” in 2017, with the song “Meu Amor sem Aranjuez” singled out.
Dulse Ponteš is the winner of many international awards, such as the “Amigo” award for the best Latin music performer and the Tenco International Award, followed by the prestigious “Maria Carta” and “Microfono de oro” award.
