Gaspar is the great-grandson of Celeste Rodrigues and wanted to learn to play Portuguese guitar from a very young age in order to accompany his great-grandmother. This dream came true when he was seven years old, at the Radio Amália Gala, by the hand of his Master and Professor, guitarist Paulo Parreira. After that he accompanied Celeste Rodrigues on several occasions. In his still short musical life, Gaspar has participated in three albums: “Saudade do Futuro”, “Brincar aos Fados” and “Vozes de Amália”. Its main references are the Masters Artur Paredes, Carlos Paredes and Jaime Santos.

I dedicate this first album to the memory of my great inspirer, my great-grandmother Celeste, the reason I fell in love with this instrument and wanted to learn to play. Above the great privilege that was being able to accompany her, I had the greatest privilege, that of having her so present in my life. I know that the music that has brought us together will always be a meeting place, where her memory will never fade.
