Cândido Lima, Ângela Lopes

Unknown music, unknown musicians, unknown public
Around the city, around sounds of ruined arts erected on debris
In the surrounding spaces of the gardens of a small palace in Rua António Cardoso
From outdoor brass bands to contemporary music of the last century
There, I/ it was/ heard, opened, for months, "windows over the new century" (C.L.)
There, place of destroyed memories here, place of indestructible memories.
