Jose Afonso is generally regarded as one of Portugal's most influential folk musicians of the 20th century. His songs of protest and political critiques helped fuel revolutionary movements launched by the people of Portugal in the early '70s, and his music remained sharply critical and politically charged as he actively recorded and performed until just before his death in 1987. In a relatively short amount of time, Afonso was quite productive, leaving behind documents of revolution and righteous struggle such as his 1975 album Rep√ļblica and many others... Jose Afonso died in February of 1987, his funeral attended by more than 30,000 people. His compositions continued to inspire and excite long after his death, and Afonso is considered one of the most important protest singers in Portugal's history.
