d’Orfeu is a cultural association founded in 1995 with the purpose of fostering cultural activities through music and associating them with all other forms of art and expression. In its early years, it actively encouraged training in traditional, rural and urban songs, introducing innovative views of tradition and organising its collection of documents. The association now focuses its efforts on creating numerous public events, such as themed festivals, to continuously present what is usually an alternative cultural offering in Portugal.
