There’s an old Portuguese jazz legend alive and kicking (in film and real live)

The post-production of Blablabla Media’s most recent feature documentary, The Ninth Life of Gualdino (also known as A Sétima Vida de Gualdino), is completed and waiting for a release date

The film goes about the legendary Gualdino Barros, an autodidact jazz drummer and manager whose life include the most amazing events and situations. Gualdino played and met some of the greats and became a mythical figure in the Portuguese musical scene for introducing to the stage close to 500 musicians and singers. In old age he had a stroke and had to reinvent himself.

The mission was not easy though. To continue living its way, Gualdino would have to regain full movement, play the drums once again, introduce one last singer and (why not?) return to Paris, where he played with Nina Simone and lived for a period under the bridge.

To know more about the film, whose trailer and beautiful poster (signed by illustrator João Lemos and designer Andreia Marques) we publish here, please visit its website ( and IMDb page.

Just three more important notes: produced by Blablabla Media to RTP, “The Ninth Life of Gualdino” also includes animated sequences by the magnificent illustrator and cartoonist André Carrilho, and features an original score by jazz guitarist André Fernandes.
