One of the best sceneries to get to know and understand Alentejo and its people is around a table drinking wine, eating bread and olives, and experience the Cante Alentejano.
Cante Alentejano is a traditional genre of singing performed by amateur choral groups. The ponto, the guide with the lower range, starts the singing.
Cante Alentejano represents the identity of this portuguese region and its people.
In public presentations some choral groups wear traditional rural customs, representing different social groups.
The group waits for the moment to enter on stage.
