Viva Damão! comes in three flavours:

  • Viva Damão Grande!  (SEM - Solo Electronic Musician) Me & my PA3X backing band

  • Viva Damão Praça!  (SAM - Solo Acoustic Musician) Me & my JMSM Taylor nylon-string guitar

Viva Damão! is different from other bands that perform Portuguese music in India. While others have only a handful of traditional Portuguese (Brazilian) songs in their repertoire, Viva Damão! OMB is a 100% Portuguese music band with a repertoire comprising 80% contemporary Portuguese (Portugal) songs and 20% traditional Portuguese (Brazilian) songs.



If a multi-member band is a non-fortified wine and a DJ is a brandy, then, Viva Damão! is port wine.”
