S2 Ep. 19 — Porto, please don’t stop the music — Europe Talks Back

In this episode of Europe Talks Back, Juli Simond tells the story of Bruno Costa, a Porto-based musician who has become the president of a musicians, artists, and shopkeepers association called Alma Stop. The association was set up to protect the interests of the people who use the spaces at CC Stop -or just Stop – a four-story shopping centre that has been sustaining Porto’s underground music scene for more than 20 years and is home to an estimated 500 musicians.

Today, the continued existence of the Stop community is under threat from the local authorities but Bruno Costa and its fellow musicians are fighting to keep it open. Reporting on the ground by April Clare Welsh.
