In 1863, the discovery of mineral water in Vidago motivated the exploration of this resource through tourism and water bottling. In order to welcome the tourists who came to the spa, hotel establishments organised every day varied sports and live-music events. In this article, I intend to address the memory of the presence of women artists in the music scene of Vidago during the 1960s. Through interviews with members of the community, I discovered that the collective memory of these women musicians was indistinct, and their names and paths unknown, unlike their male counterparts. The photographs of Júlio Silva's private collection triggered reminiscences of memories that led to the identification of these women and the recovery of their history.
