Pop Rock with traditional roots. SAL is probably one of the best kept secrets and most recent developments in the modern Portuguese music scene.

‘Diabo na Cruz’ was where most of the band met and were responsible for part of the band’s sound and unique energy that defined their live performances.

When the band finished: João Pinheiro on drums, Sergio Pires on vocals and viola braguesa, João Gil on bass and Daniel Mestre on guitar joined Vicente Santos on the keyboards and created SAL

From different backgrounds and with different musical influences, the road cemented their friendship and created the desire to continue writing and recording new songs to keep the chemistry alive both in the studio and on stage. 

SAL is the statement of a unique musical identity: it’s a Rock band that explores the legacy of Portuguese traditional and popular music, blending it with modern and electronic elements.
