The aim is to boost Portuguese music on both a national and international level, creating a platform showcasing music made in the diaspora. This will promote and add value to Portuguese musical heritage and creations, whilst providing an inventory of Portuguese professional musicians, cultural groups, and associations that have regular activities abroad with Portuguese communities. The digital platform will have an online radio station; a sharing space that should facilitate cooperation among Portuguese artists worldwide
