What: IX Ole Tunas, Festival de Tunas Academicas

Where: Teatro Angrense, 1 block over from the post office by main square in Angra and 1 block of the main street, pink colored building

When: Saturday, March 12, 2011 at 9 pm

Cost: 4 euro per person

Tunas are a university musical group made up of singers, percussion and guitar players.  The groups also had dancers to perform along with the music.  This is actually a competition of various groups from all over Portugal and the Azores.  The groups performed Friday night and will continue on Saturday night.  It is a great way to explore the Portuguese culture.  While they speak and sing in portuguese it is still entertaining if you do not speak the language.  They did not take the stage until 9:30 but the show time is listed as 9 pm.  If you arrive in the area and are unsure of the location chances are a good group of loud students will draw you in to the right location.  This event will make for a fun evening of local culture.
