The internationally-acclaimed Portuguese singer-songwriter Oliver Sean is to headline at a major Indie music festival in the former Portuguese colony Goa, as talks are being held to bring the star to the Algarve for a series of first-ever concerts in Portugal.

Should the talks reach fruition it will be the first time the MTV Europe Music Awards nominee has performed in his native Portugal.
A spokesperson for Management Company W.O.A International explained: “We are currently in talks with venues in the Algarve to set up a tour and are looking at a possible March-April official tour of the Algarve by Oliver Sean, which will be his first proper Portugal tour, something we are very excited about.”
Meanwhile, Sean, who is of mixed Portuguese-Goan descent, will be taking part in the event in Goa, which brings some of the biggest independent live bands and singers from around the globe to India.
Oliver Sean will be headlining the festival in the country where he grew up and spent his childhood, and which is also known as the culture hub of the region and the international music capital of India.

“I can’t explain how excited I am to be headlining the tour and festival this year” says Oliver Sean, adding: “This festival and tour has always been my most loved event since 2008, but this year is a little extra special as it marks my return to Goa after almost two years of being away.”
Wanda Alvares, Marketing Head, W.O.A International explained: “Our goal since we started W.O.A Entertainment has always been two things: promoting the best artists that International Independent Music has to offer and promoting Goa as the International live music capital of India.”
She added: “We have also been extremely lucky to have partners who share these same sentiments including Vh1 India and Pride Sun Village, both of whom have shown unwavering support every year without fail to W.O.A Entertainment and our founder Oliver Sean since we started this event seven years ago”.
Following his Goa gig, Oliver Sean will be headlining a performance in Dubai at the Urban Jazz Series, a run up to the Dubai Jazz Festival 2015, and ends February with a live concert in Zurich, Switzerland.
