Sandra Pires


Born in East Timor and raised in Portugal, the singer and musical actress gained her first stage experience in Australia before launching her career in Europe with her hit "Here I Am". In her first feature film, "My Sister, the Beast", the exceptional artist also proved her acting talent in a double role and accompanied the film with her own music.

Panfili & Friends


The love of world music prompted violinist Rusanda Panfili to create an ensemble that presents a somewhat different image of the classical music world with fresh sounds and vital rhythms from all over the world. With international folk music, Panfili and Friends make every performance unforgettable.


An evening of conviviality and joie de vivre

Sandra Pires is a traveller. The path of life has led her from East Timor by way of Portugal and Australia to Austria, and the Portuguese singer has found musical inspiration in all these places.  She incorporates these experiences in her new programme: with very personal texts and memories underlaid with traditional music, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. An evening of conviviality and joie de vivre, drawing on inspiration from the earthy rhythms of Africa to the world of the Viennese waltz.
