In this episode of From the Vault, we revisit the music that was the soundtrack for the 1974 Portuguese revolution though a dynamic soundscape created by master KPFA producer Alan Snitow. In this recording, Snitow weaves interpretations and translations of song lyrics as they related to the events of the Portuguese revolution with the music of Jose Alfonso, Seriogo Godinho, Fausto, and others. O Que Faz Falta(What Still Needs to be Done): The Music of the Portuguese Revolution is engaging musical documentary on fifty years of struggle which triumphed in securing freedom and democracy for the people of Portugal and former Portuguese colonies.
