Tuna ForTuna was created on February 15th of 1993 by a group of friends, students of NovaSBE. A wide scope of instruments is played on stage, including traditional Portuguese instruments such as mandolin and cavaquinho. Since its beginning, ForTuna has been presenting its original songs as well as covers from already-existing songs.
Due to the amazing spirit and dedication of its members allied with a good quality in its performance, ForTuna has been invited to several festivals all throughout Portugal, from Braga to Faro, and also taking breath in the beautiful islands of Azores. Some of them even abroad, in Switzerland.
