Carminho @ Southbank Centre / 7:45pm (BELVEDERE ROAD SE1 8XX)

£20, 10+ Booking fee. Carminho is Portugal?s brightest new star. Her first album, Fado, was a burning statement of intent from the 25-year old, who realised after attending University and travelling the globe that singing the music of her homeland was her calling in life. It went on to be named the best album of 2011 by Songlines, as Carminho starting performing concerts all over the world.

Her new album, Alma (Portuguese for ‘soul’), was released in March of this year and portrays a woman growing in spirit as well as talent; combining traditional fado songs resurrected from the dusty tavernas of old with her own music and new arrangements of the work of Brazilian greats like Fernanda Maria and Vinicius de Moraes, Carminho’s voice glistens with potent, raw tenderness as it soars over quintessential Portuguese and acoustic Spanish guitars. Buy tickets

“Carminho has a voice both beautifully translucent and stunning in its emotional charge…it’s impossible not to break when in the presence of this remarkable performer” Songlines.

£20,10+ Booking fee. Flavia Coelho is a young Brazilian singer, who’s made a huge impact across Europe with her new album Bossa Muffin.

Adriano Adewale @ SOUTHBANK CENTRE / 6:00pm * BELVEDERE ROAD SE1 8XX

Paco De Lucia @ SOUTHBANK CENTRE / 7:30pm * BELVEDERE ROAD SE1 8XX

£50-10+ Booking fee. Paco De Lucia, the grand master of flamenco, returns to London for the first time in two years. While he is best known as flamenco’s greatest living exponent, Paco De Lucia’s outlook is broad enough to have taken in, for instance, his enduring work with John McLaughlin, while the presence within his band of young Spanish and Cuban players reflects a recognition that even a traditional music requires the writing of new chapters. Though an undoubted virtuoso, Paco’s is above all music of passion. “You need a certain technique to be able to play,’ explains the guitarist, ‘but the rest must come from your heart.” Buy Tickets

“Nothing in de Lucia’s performance is contrived, “targeted” or predictable. The pieces evolve from light to shade, from fury to reflection – like the mood swings, intense passions and adrenaline-driven actions of everyday human experience, in laughter, fear, anger or love. That’s why flamenco speaks to everyone.” The Guardian
