João Torto is the protagonist on one of the most curious folk tales of Viseu. The story tells us that, this inventor designed and crafted wings of cloth, and leather to experiment human flight. On the 20th of June of 1540, this "modern" Icarus climbed up to the top of the cathedral's tower to make use of his invention. The flight began well for a little while, but due to some technical problems, he crashed soon after in the roof of a chapel. He died a couple of days later due to the injuries inflicted during the landing.
To this day, I still like to believe that there's some truth to this folk tale that turned Viseu's João Torto into a worldwide figure. So, to celebrate the anniversary of his flight, we invited the band "a Jigsaw" (http://myspace.com/​ajigsaw) to write a song about Torto's adventure and present it live in EMÓRIO (A cultural space that from the begging of the year has been making cultural activities concerning art with João Torto as the background theme) precisely on the 20th of June. a Jigsaw's response was staggering and this video is the first live presentation of their new song "Crooked John".


All the songs played live at EMPÓRIO are available for free download at http://musiquim.com

"Musiquim" is a portuguese music project in which artists, mostly national, are invited to perform in unusual places. With the clock ticking and no big setup, every performance is as simple as it gets. That's the strength of a take away show: the stripped down songs, the unexpected, the laughter and the small mistakes. That is the essence of what we show and, while at it, we take the opportunity to explore our city. After three years, we had the chance to film musicians on the top of trees, in a dentist's clinic, in a shoe store, on a carousel and even in a soap factory.

Every take away show happens unannounced in Viseu - Portugal and comes to life here, online.
