Born at the turn of the century, Bandeira boasts an enviable CV. Currently at the top spot on Airplay with the track “Como Tu” (in collaboration with Ivandro), music was the only path she’d always wanted to pursue. Her professional debut took place in 2015 with her single “Crazy”. Fast forward two years and the artist was awarded a Golden Globe for Best Newcomer in Portugal. In 2018, she was among the five artists nominated for Best Portuguese Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards, which she would end up getting in the 2022 edition. That same year she was also awarded the Vodafone Best Song of the Year at the Play Awards with her song “Onde Vais” (ft. Carminho), which has accumulated over 13 million views on YouTube. Bandeira’s career has been closely linked to TV: she was a contestant on TVI’s programme Uma Canção Para Ti (A Song for You) in 2011 as well as RTP’s The Voice Kids in 2014. In 2019, she was a contestant in the Portuguese TV channel TVI’s Dancing with the Stars; later, she went on to present the talent show LaBanda on national TV channel RTP and her music has featured in a SIC channel soap opera. However, it’s the stage where we can now find her more often. Having performed to sold-out venues up and down Portugal, she will be at one of this summer’s main events. Bárbara Bandeira performs at Sumol Summer Fest’s 2023 edition. Don’t miss out!
