Vinho do Porto – Spring 2019

Vinho do Porto – Spring 2019

Susana & Lyle are moving to Quadra Island. And, for the curious, “staying” does not mean her Canadian citizenship has finally come through. She is staying with Cortes Radio. (Several of our producers are on Quadra.) Susana Vijaya has been one of Cortes Radio’s volunteers for several years now. She made her debut in the 2015 Lip Sync and has had her radio proram, Vinho do Porto, for close to two years. She was born in Porto, Portugal. After a strong career in sales as a commercial director, she founded and ran a flourishing vegetarian and macrobiotic restaurant that evolved to feed the body, mind and soul as a spiritual center for holistic healing. She has a passion for music since she can remember. Her grandmother was always listening to Fado and she was always surrounded by musicians and Djs that opened her taste to a lot of different genres. Coming to Cortes island, she started to perform at the CKTZ LipSyncs and realized how much she loves to share her culture and how much Cortesians love to receive it. Vinho do Porto Show So she decided to have her own radio show, where she can share all her Portuguese music background, being that from Portugal, from the ex Portuguese colonies or Brazil. Vinho do Porto show has as a common thread all songs in Portuguese language, and the genres varies between Fado, Rock, Pop, Blues, Dance, Samba, Jazz, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Folk, Bossa Nova, MPB, Forro, Choro, Frevo, Batucada, Maracatu, Morna, Semba, Marrabenta, etc. April 2019 Episode 102 - Vinho do Porto Episode 101 - Vinho do Porto Episode 100...
