Rodrigo Leão is a famous portuguese contemporary musician and composer. His solo work explores a combination of modern-classic compositions with more traditional song format and instrumentation. In his (incredible) song "Rua da Atalaia" he expresses trough music the aliveness and attractiveness of one of the most famous and peculiar streets in Lisbon, the "Atalaia Street", precisely the street where the apartment is located... Please, check it out!...
