MUITO MAIS QUE UMA LABEL.
“Portuguese music isn’t only about about fado, classical or jazz,” says Hugo Mariani as he shows Monocle around this jumbled but inviting space in a renovated bedroom at the rear of the Embaixada shopping mall. Stocking a selection of contemporary and classic CDs and records, the shop was started by singer Teresa Lopes Alves to showcase the range and quality of music from throughout Portugal. The welcoming interior is made from salvaged wooden furniture and designed by artist João Mouro. A selection of traditional handmade filigrana jewellery also stands out as a unique stocking filler.
