It’s open to all nationalities and languages and you can talk about anything you like. You don´t have to be an advanced speaker, or even speak a second language – its for all levels!’

They are joined by Pedro Costa on guitar, who rearranged the music for each of the songs, while Diogo Gomes will play trumpet and Ana Magalhães and Zero Telles are to provide the percussion.
