OCARINA was established at the end of the seventies in a typical neighborhood of Lisbon "Bairro Alto" with a shop specialized in Portuguese traditional crafts and instruments. In 1982, the scope of Ocarina was enlarged to other cultural activities: a restaurant and a concert house. In this room Ocarina presented concerts, theatre plays, painting exhibitions, book and musical record releases workshops... Ocarina became a meeting point to artists and intellectuals, many of them participating in the cultural activities as artists, actors or creators. Twelve years later (Nov.1997) Ocarina presents a new project linked to music, performing as a tour and booking agency, music producer and record company.
As record company Ocarina released, until now, 22 albums and one DVD distributed by the following musical styles: Fado, new traditional Portuguese music, African music.
