With a clear approach to new musical trends, without barriers or demarcated borders and close to the younger generations, the MONDA project has created a contemporary approach to Cante Alentejano, mixing traditional composition with the new sounds of World Music.

If the “sea left the Alentejo” from where it “brought songs of gold”, the merchants of those roots are clearly Jorge Roque, Pedro Zagalo and Herlander Medinas, aligned in the MONDA collective.

The ingredients from which inspiration is made, sanguine and rooted, are all present.
MONDA is a body in which the heart of the plain beats, it is the feelings and emotions that have always distinguished its cante, it is a warmth of its own, in which one is born, one lives and only thus can sing.

MONDA is everything that distinguishes throughout the world that taste of Alentejo, nowadays recognized as Intangible Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO. Spiced by guitars, keyboards and bass it becomes a new voice, more open and diversified that, to simplify, is composed in the scope of World Music and crosses any frontier.

MONDA initiates in 2022 a new sonic journey towards the biggest stages of the country. The ingredients from which the inspiration that distinguishes this passionate collective are present in each one of their songs. MONDA is everything that the Southern plains offer us. Serenity, strength and distinction. Live, with new colours and new contours, MONDA becomes a genuine, luminous and exciting party, that sings deep to the world, its deepest roots.

Live, much more than the celebration of the Alentejo Singing, MONDA becomes a genuine, luminous and touching party, that sings deep the roots of a whole country.
