PORTUGAL: SALVADOR SOBRAL JOINS ALEXANDER SEARCH BAND

Forget Salvador the Eurovision winner, he's now Benjamin Cymbra, the singer of Alexander Search band. The whole affair is isnpired by Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), who was a Portuguese poet, writer, literary critic, translator, publisher and philosopher, described as one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest poets in the Portuguese language. He also wrote in and translated from English and French. The band takes a note from the time Pessoa stayed in South Africa and wrote in English.... he was also a great fan of alias, pseudonyms and heteronyms and therefor all members of the band have gotten a new identity, or Sobral become Cymbra. 
Long story short. let's enjoy their first single and video A day of sun...... More of their songs here.
