CCAM#2 Creative Circle Of Algarve Musicians

by Various Artists



The Algarve has a lot of great musicians!
But they are all scattered in small groups, and there is no real network to connect them all. This is why we founded the Creative Circle Of Algarve Musicians (CCAM) and started to meet in Odiaxere, close to Lagos, every month. For the foreseeable future, it’s always the first Sunday of a month from 11 am to 3 pm.

This sampler was recorded at the CCAM#2 meeting on Nov. 06, 2022. It was the second meeting of the CCAM and the first we decided to record and release.

You will find solo performances of Sigi Aldenhoff and Yan. Further, there is an original song by Ricardo Henriques, who taught us how to play it, and a group improvisation.

For collaboration or bookings, please get in touch with the artists directly:

Sigi Aldenhoff, mobile +491728615533, Sigi_Aldenhoff@yahoo.de

Yan, yanalajouanine@outlook.com

The meetings are organized with a Telegram group you can join with the following link: t.me/+gEzAgQiyxkAzODRi

The meetings aim to have a good time together, inspire and be inspired, make new contacts and converse. The event is not open to a regular audience as it is meant to be a private place for musicians to discuss new concepts and unfinished work.

THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible and all the musicians involved. It's so beautiful to see this growing.
