The third edition of the Moscow Spring A Cappella International Festival was held between the 1st and the 12th of May and similarly to the previous year, Portugal was represented by The Spell, who competed in the “Medium Vocal Groups” category. The Spell arose in 2015 and comprises 5 elements: Su Marques, Debbie Monteiro, Johnny Lee, Diego Marta e Dhaze.
The Festival gathered 195 participants from 26 countries and by jury’s decision this edition’s Grand Prix was awarded to two groups: the Americans and last year’s winners Six Appeal, and the German group Onair. The Spell achieved the 5th place in their category by public vote.
On the 8th of May the Ambassador greeted the Portuguese group at the Embassy, where they had the opportunity to perform and present some of the songs included in their repertoire for the Festival.
