Rodrigo Cardoso

Musician, Producer, Editor

(1979, Portugal). In 2000 I founded Bor Land, an independent record label where I worked with some of the most consensual names of Portuguese music, including the likes of Old Jerusalem, Norberto Lobo, Carlos Bica, La La La Ressonance, Lobster, München, Alexandre Soares, Jorge Coelho and Gustavo Costa. I was a member of experimental pop band Alla Polacca. Studied Music Production and Technologies at Esmae in Porto. Between 2009 and 2013, I collaborated with Cdgo / Jo-Jo's Music, the biggest and oldest record shop in Portugal at the time and a pioneer in online sales. In 2011, I started Boom Chicka Boom, a small label that houses Os Príncipes and Torto. I am one of the cofounders of Amaei, which is the first association of Portuguese independent editors/labels, and also an affiliate of Impala (European Independent Music Companies Association) and Win (World Independent Network). Since 2013 I have been collaborating with Sonoscopia, a platform for experimental music and performing arts, where I have been playing with Srosh Ensemble and the Nova Orquestra Futurista do Porto. I currently live in Oporto, Portugal.
