Zeca Afonso at the Coliseu Lisboa (1983)

Zeca Afonso is one of the most influential folk and political musicians in Portuguese history. He became an icon among Portuguese left-wing activists due to the role of his music in the resistance against the dictatorial regime. In the ensuing Portuguese revolutionary process, after 1974, Zeca Afonso was a very active musician and continued composing political and folk songs, often criticizing the post-revolutionary changes. Years after his death, Zeca Afonso is still widely listened to, not only in Portugal, but also abroad. He died in February 23, 1987.
