The Acid House Movement in Portugal 1991-1997
For 50 years Portugal lived under dark times dictated by Salazar’s right wing, conservative nationalist dictatorship. Portugal was isolated and closed off culturally to the world. That was until a new sound called Acid House arrived.
With a new generation too young to remember the dictatorship and too hungry to find their own cultural expression, it wasn’t until the late 80’s that Portugal started to breath the fresh air of democracy.
