Rodrigo Leão

portuguese Portugal ambient chillout world

    Rodrigo Leão is a Portuguese musician and composer. He was born in Lisbon in 1964. He became known for his musical compositions and participation in portuguese bands such as Madredeus and Sétima Legião.

    He co-founded the band Sétima Legião in 1982 and Madredeus in 1985. As his solo records started to receive increasing attention, he suspends his colaborations with these two groups in 1993 and 1994.

    His solo work explores a combination of modern-classic compositions with more traditional song format and instrumentation. Several artists have participated in both his records and tours, such as Lula Pena or Adriana Calcanhotto in Alma Mater and Beth Gibbons and Ryuichi Sakamoto (Ryuichi Sakamoto) in Cinema.

    His album, Cinema, was very successful in the portuguese market, reaching #1 in sales and its promotion concerts in Portugal and Spain were frequently sold-out. In this album, the ecletic roots of his music and the influence of cinema can be appreciated.
