Thanks to the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest we discovered the enormous artistic sensitivity of a Portuguese singer who, despite generally concentrating on jazz, captivated audiences all over the continent with his unusual song Amar pelos dois, written by his sister Luísa, also a singer and composer. Salvador Sobral carried off the competition and immediately returned to what he loves most: jazz. In 2016 he released his first solo album, Excuse Me, accompanied by Júlio Resende, Portugal’s top jazz pianist, with whom he will perform in San Sebastian. Trained at Barcelona’s Taller de Músic, his music has influences of bossa nova, popular Latin American music, and one of jazz history’s greats, the trumpet player Chet Baker, of whom Sobral is a self-confessed admirer.
