Banda do Casaco


Banda do Casaco are a Portuguese Prog-Folk band active from 1974 to 1984 considered by some to be one of Portugal's greatest Progressive rock bands. Their seminal album was the Hoje há Conquilhas, Amanhã não Sabemos released in 1976. After the failure of the Filarmónica Fraude project, more for political reasons than quality, António Pinho (singer) and Luís Linhares (keys) joined with the ex Musica Novarum member Nuno Rodrigues (vocals and guitar) and Celso de Carvalho (Cello and Double bass) to form the group Banda do Casaco.
