In the careers of artists of the so-called Portuguese light music, history is written in the most diverse ways. However, whether we like it or not, success is always measured in the same way – public support and recognition. In this chapter CLEMENTE is an example.

CLEMENTE was born on the 25th of May, with the Sado River at his feet, with the Serra da Arrábida and the Atlantic Ocean as his horizon. At the age of fifteen, she embarked on her musical career in the mid-70s, first as a vocalist in dance groups and then embarking on a solo career. A time when, on the one hand, there was a great appetite for more popular music, on the other hand, the competition was great and the competition was “fierce”. In these cases, only the best survive. This is the case of CLEMENTE.

Her career followed a well-defined strategy, in which in the first phase, CLEMENTE, cemented her name and image in the national territory, through countless performances and constant appearances on Television Programs and her always friendly presence with the Radio and the Press .

At a later stage, she knew how to make the most of the possibilities that were made possible to her through participation in important International Festivals outside Portugal as an ambassador for Portuguese music. Of these we can highlight Slanchev Briag/Bulgaria/84, Tokyo/Japan/84, Puerto Rico/84, Malta/85, Mediterranean Festival/Turkey 89/ Tel Aviv/Israel 90 where he was awarded several prizes and distinctions.

The songs in his repertoire are still in everyone’s memory and ears: “Vais Partir”, “Canção dos teus cabelos”, “Marinheiro”, “Amore Mio”, “Bolero”, “Colmeia do Amor” and many others .

Having won several Silver, Gold and Platinum Records during his already long career, filled with countless successes, CLEMENTE is certainly one of the most respected and applauded names in the Portuguese music scene, which obliges him to constantly perform numerous performances across the country and travel often around the world to sing for our compatriots, essentially, but not only.
