I am a work in progress. So I can tell you what I was and what I would like to be, but who I am actually I just know after it. So I am not finished, that’s the way I live. Of course as a musician and Professional I do music and the voice is my big pasion. Speaking or singing, not just as music. Communication, verbal or artistic. I can say that Rui is someone who loves the sound of the voice and tries to be better each day.
I am a very passionate person! I want to be able to do a lot of different things with joy and pleasure.
The house of my parents. Because it’s the place where I grove up and where I return everytime I come Faro. I am always staying with my family in Faro and we appreciate very much the sense of family. I have a sister also lives in Lisbon and everytime we gather in my family house in Faro.
I am always changing but I remember a very important one. It was like a trigger. When I was struggling to choose between History of Art and Music, there is a Portuguese music called “Inquietação” from José Mário Branco and it pops! The music tells what I was feeling. It punched me in a very strong way and I thought it was a sign for me to choose conservatory.
The light, the smell, the quality of the air. I just realize when I move to Lisbon. When I go out from the train in Faro, I take a deep breathe and the smell is such amazing! The smell of the sea, mountains from the countryside; and we lose the smell when we stay here too long, we get used to it.
