Interview with Filipe Teixeira and Rui Nelson the creators of the project EcoMusicalis.
What is EcoMusicalis?
Ecomusicalis is a concept that emerged out of a will to bring together music and nature, following the natural instinct of the human being to go back to its roots, to nature.
Those who says that “Madeira is just for oldies” have not yet discovered the real Madeira! On the other hand it could be that they are our loyal visitors that are saying this in order to keep this beloved destination a secret

Pico Ruivo, Madeira Island, by Joel Sérgio Pereira
Pico Ruivo is the highest peak on the Madeira Islands. It can be reached only by foot, usually either from Pico do Arieiro (3rd highest) after a strenuous hike, or from Achada do Teixeira with a shorter, easier trail. There is an additional trail leading west to Encumeada. Just below the summit is a hut offering simple accommodation and drinks.
Pico Ruivo is 1862 meters (6107 ft) high  and provides some of the most incredible views of the island from coast to coast, but unpredictable weather conditions can make it quite dangerous
Up to now this is one of the top most beautiful videos of Madeira Island that I came across on the Web. This video is entitled “Momentâneo” made by Filipe Gomes from Madeira.
This video is for sure a homage to Madeira Island. Obrigado (Thank You) Filipe for making this and share it with us.

Madeira has various ‘Arraiais‘ all year round. Arraiais are traditional regional festivities that is celebrated with street processions, flower carpets, churches and street decorations with lights, colorful flags, music, traditional folklore, food and drink. Each town/parish has its own Arraial and they can differ one from another. To give you an impression of such an Arraial …. check out the following videos made by resp. Rui Martins and ‘Berdades’.
