Description

The Tuna de Medicina do Porto is a musical group composed of, at the moment, over 130 students and graduated students of Medicine, from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto, in Portugal.

The purpose of the group is to promote and perform Portuguese music and academic traditions.

The group was founded in 1991, born from a common and ancient tradition of the students from the faculty, whose passion for music and for the academic tradition in Portugal led them to the formation of this singular group.

They were inspired by the traditional groups of college students, called tunas, who have been together since ancient times in Portuguese and Spanish universities to play music.

The black traditional academic costumes of the University of Porto were where the writer J.K. Rowling was inspired to describe the costumes of Harry Potter. (https://www.portugalist.com/harry-potter-porto/)

With a diverse repertoire, based on their own adaptations of songs from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Several of these arrangements are of traditional Portuguese songs also with some original songs. The Tuna de Medicina do Porto is a distinct group who always try to give their public their best performance.

This Portuguese group has travelled extensively since their formation, having already performed in places spread across the 4 corners of the globe, such as The United States, Canada, Brazil, Macau and Goa, also closer to home in several European countries such as The United Kingdom, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Austria and The Czech Republic to name a few.

This year the Tuna celebrates their 25th anniversary and Ireland was one of the countries they chose to tour.

Setting their identity by the excellence, pride and joy which they always carry, the Tuna de Medicina do Porto is a young, lively and dynamic group, always looking for the next big adventure or achievement to be accomplished, whilst keeping a true bohemian, romantic and joyful spirit, which they try to share with their public in every single occasion.

Throughout their history, they have recorded four albums with songs played by the group and you will be able to purchase one of their CD's on the night of the concert.

This is the Tuna de Medicina do Porto, come and enjoy an original, and brilliant performance!

There are only 250 seats available, so you better hurry up!
