MeltingPot are an Irish band based in Lisbon, Portugal. Their music is a high octane mix of Irish folk, traditional and World music with an emphasis on audience interaction and making a party.
The band came into existence in 2003 when Carlos (violin) and Billy (Voice and Guitar) were joined by Alix (Percussion). Due to the bands mixture of influences and cultures (Carlos from Zimbabwe, Billy from Ireland and Alix from France) the name MeltingPot seemed appropriate and stuck. Over the Years new members have joined and all brought their unique influences to bear on the bands overall sound. MeltingPots music is the culmination of this mixture of styles and personal influences.
In May 2005 the band did a blitz recording session and recorded their first studio album in one night titled "The rights of Man" after one of its tracks.
The band was back recording again in 2013 with their second album "Melting Point" recorded live in O'Gilins Irish Bar with a view to try and capture the energy of the band and the audience.
MeltingPot has played all over Portugal and its islands and all over Europe at all types of events from World music festivals and Rock in Rio to corporate events and weddings. They continue to be the resident band in O'Gilins Irish Bar, Cais do Sodré, Lisbon.
