Releasing free music since 2012, ZigurArtists is one of the top netlabels of its generation. With a varied catalogue and a steady love for Creative Commons licences, they managed to bring back to life a deeply aged Portuguese town called Lamego. Three years after their start, their work includes not only an incredible music collection but also a yearly music festival called ZigurFest. On this latest session, I talked to António Silva, one of ZigurArtists co-founders to understand how the collective started and what they aim for. From their early feature in Monocle to cassettes and talent scouting, there was time to talk about various bits and bobs and, of course, some great music from their catalogue.
