Ana Moura‘s stunning interpretation of her country’s soulful fado has made her a rising star in Europe and brought her critical acclaim in her North American concerts. An outstanding voice in the new generation of fado singers, she transcends her youth with a maturity that speaks of the pain of separation, unrequited love, and longing – themes portrayed in this poetic, deeply expressive genre. Accompaniment on Portuguese guitar, acoustic guitar, and bass guitar.
“(she) brings a sultry, smoke-tinged voice to fado’s dramatic arcs.” New York Times
