The Todos Orchestra was born in 2011 thanks to the meetings by the Italian maestros Mario Tronco and Pino Picorelli who were looking for different sounds, other cultures and new musicians. The musicians who plays in the orchestra are from many parts of the world and live in Lisbon. They bring with them their own unique musical references. This year they will play with the Angolan singer, Aline Frazão on 8th of September at 10:30 pm.
