Tiago Nacarato is one of the most complete and coherent songwriter and singer in the Portuguese Music today, being predicted to have a long and solid career.
Son of Brazilian parents, he was born in Porto in a musical family background, hence the influence on his identity of Brazilian popular music and bossa nova. At the age of 18, Tiago Nacarato decided to invest in his musical education, enrolling at the Valentim de Carvalho music school where he took singing, guitar, auditory training, music theory and combo lessons.
Later on, he returned to his Brazilian roots when he joined the Orquestra Bamba Social as a vocalist, a project that brings together Portuguese-Brazilian musicians residing in Porto. This project pays tribute to several classics of Brazilian music, recreating them and adding new sonds.
Since 2018, he has presented his project solo on stage, having passed through numerous emblematic rooms, such as the Centro Cultural de Belém, in Lisbon, the Sala Suggia, in Porto, or the Convento São Francisco, in Coimbra. At the end of that year, he made his debut in Brazil, where he performed in sold out rooms and with double sessions in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza and Belo Horizonte.
“Lugar Comum”, the debut album published in October 2019, took him back to concerts in Brazil and brought him back to perform on the stages of some of the biggest national festivals, such as MEO Marés Vivas, NOS Alive or Festival F.
In February 2020, he participated as a composer in the RTP Song Festival, with the theme “Passe-Partout”, performed by Bárbara Tinoco. This is just one example of the partnerships in which he was found him - just for his debut album he invited names like Ana Bacalhau, Salvador Sobral, Paulo Novaes or Paulinho Moska - and recently, in 2021, he edited the single “Areia Fina” with Fran and participated in “Vejo-te Aqui”, a song by Irma.
For Tiago Nacarato, music only makes sense if it reaches the public, his and others audiences. In this context, during the pandemic the “Casulo” project emerged, in which he assumes himself as a curator and which helps to promote the work of 7 artists, through 7 episodes and 7 concerts in his city, Porto.
