Dorchester’s Bino Barros will take the stage at the 12th Annual Boston GreenFest & Tech Expo on Sat., Aug. 17 with a performance of Cabo Verdean folk music enriched with soul that captures the hearts of listeners of every age and background. Barros will perform at 7 p.m. at Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, Long Wharf.
A singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist and composer born in Santiago, Cabo Verde, he is the founder of Atlant Music, an events and artists’ management agency. Barros is also the co-founder of a Unity Peace Festival held last June in Ronan Park, Dorchester.
A storyteller by heart, he believes that it is important to laugh and enjoy the best of life while reaching out to help others. “I am so honored to be part of GreenFest,” Barros said. “It gives me the opportunity to share my music with people from all walks of life and to do my part to raise consciousness of the importance of banding together to save our environment. I truly feel that music can give us hope and joy in these difficult times.”
