Sara Tavares, who sang Portugal to an eighth place at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, will be giving a concert in Amsterdam next month to promote her album Balancê. The concert is part of a wider European tour which will take the former participant to Norway, Finland, Belgium and Spain, amongst other destinations.

28-year-old Sara's third album has already achieved critical acclaim beyond Portugal. UK newspaper The Sunday Times describes her as an “Immensely likeable talent with a light, expressive voice”, while Play Music Magazine applauds her “stunning voice”. She has established herself as an important musical voice for a new generation of Portuguese Africans, with those roots having a huge influence on her work.

Sara has already made an appearance in Holland this March, performing at the Podium Mozaiek in Amsterdam, and this time she returns to the Muziekgebouw to give a concert on 2nd May. Tickets are priced from 16 to 20 Euros, and further details can be found on the Muziekgebouw website. Further details of other tour dates can be found on the website of her promotional management World Connection Agency, at this link.
