“Plasticine takes you on a journey of exploring the globe through sound. They expand your horizons!” - Fulvia Almeida, Artistic Director at ArQuente

Plasticine is a fusion/world music band that defies sonic boundaries. They transgress genres by combining progressive rock, funk, jazz, and soul elements and cross geographical borders by injecting afro-beats, latin & oriental influences into their sound. Their melodies are accessible to a wide range of audiences with varying music tastes. What they do is “weave a global musical tapestry”, as they like to say.

The band formed in 2018 and in spite of a two-year break caused by the global pandemic, nevertheless they accomplished several important milestones while performing throughout Portugal. They were nominated for the Best Instrumental performance and People’s Choice at IPMA Awards 2021, won the Marginália Battle of the Bands in 2019, and were selected for a Showcase in South Music's first edition.

Recently, they came out with a new theme about the climate crisis in collaboration with João Frade, Sickonce, and Perigo Público. In addition to that, the band is working on a new album to be released by the second half of 2022 sponsored by government funding, and they played at this year’s edition of the MED Festival.
