Virgem Suta

Profile:
The story of Virgem Suta is not that of a regular band of today. They weren't discovered through Myspace and they did not use the information highways to conquer their thousands of fans. Making use of two guitars, voice and the 'boldness' of a handful of songs, with lyrical restraint, they took to other highways. They have lost count of the times they ran the country from south to north and from north to south again, and unlike your typical band they did not accept every little invitation to perform. No! Get used to it! Being in Suta is an elated state of being, living and thinking. They were virgins to the world of music and wanted to take all the time they needed to feel ready. They accomplished their goal it and offered us a wonderful debut. Ah! It must be said that the Virgin Suta are from Beja, south of Portugal... and there, time is a relative thing. With the ever present counselling and production skills of Hélder Gonçalves [known composer, producer and leader of one of the most charismatic Portuguese bands - Clã], Virgem Suta toiled very hard until they reached a point in their work they were pleased with. In that dozen songs that make up the disk, through repeated hearings, one can see the features that enrapture all those that come across them. Although contemporary, they don't discard tradition and their songs ooze with Portugality. Make no mistake, if they were Spaniards, they would play castanets. So, they play adufe and cavaquinho because it is natural to them. All this is alongside an irony that appears at times unusual and does not elicit an easy laugh, more like a slow grin that comes only after having de-constructed their messages. Virgem Suta are Nuno Figueiredo and Jorge Benvinda.
