Historic

Gaitada na Baixa appears sporadically in 2016, the result of a mutual will of Ponta do Sol and Retoiça DNA to challenge the very logic of things and engender something with unique identity and charisma. The idea was not exactly "fresh or immediate" but the conviction grew that the condiments (madness, will, belief and... a piper) were guaranteed to take this project forward. Since then, this project has been growing and gaining its public (local and foreign).
