The Rough guide to fadoMusic CD - 2012 | Portuguese
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
The Portuguese folk music form fado has gained international recognition in recent years thanks to the stellar work of young ladies Cristina Branco, Mariza, Misia and the late Amalia Rodrigues, grand dame of fadistas.
Fado was born in the bustling side-streets and alleys of old Lisbon in the early nineteenth century, and today the tradition is very much alive and kicking in the city. In steamy bars, where the music is always on offer and the drama is frequently high-pitched, strong-voiced singers and skilled guitarists tell their tales of woe and longing. Enjoy a handpicked selection of some of the finest Fado musicians, both old and new, on this engaging Rough Guide.
