Music in the Mountains

The Bendada Music Festival presents an exclusive screening of the short film “The Bendada Music Festival: Bringing Life to Rural Portugal,” which documents how music, education, and entrepreneurship can be used to revitalize a community. Every summer, the festival brings advanced student musicians from all over the world to a small village in Portugal where music has played a central role for centuries.
