Berklee Performance Center, Boston, MA

Exquisite vocalist Ana Moura possesses a sound unlike any other in fado. Her voice trolls freely though the Portuguese tradition, flirting elegantly with pop and broadening the soul-baring genre with stunning results. The BBC raves, "her melancholic intimacy dominates the moment it sashays out of the speakers . . . setting a mood of mesmerizing sorrow." Examiner.com called Moura's voice "made for melodrama . . . aesthetically

thrilling and emotionally heartbreaking."

The BBC raves, "her melancholic intimacy dominates the moment it sashays out of the speakers . . . setting a mood of mesmerizing sorrow." Examiner.com called Moura's voice "made for melodrama . . . aesthetically thrilling and emotionally heartbreaking."

 

Portuguese vocalist Ana Moura's soulful and riveting interpretation of her land's captivating fado style has made her a star, and the youngest fadista to be nominated for a Dutch Edison Award. Fado, a deeply expressive and poetic form of song, personifies the Portuguese psyche with its universal themes of lost love, separation and longing. Ana Moura has achieved great success in Portugal and abroad and was even invited to sing onstage with The Rolling Stones in Portugal after the group saw her perform in a local fado bar.

 Portuguese Fado, an old form of urban folk music in Portugal, was born in the streets and back alleys of Lisbon, Portugal in the early 1800's. Today, fado has gained its position in the World Music circuit.  Fado is very much alive not only in Lisbon, Portugal but also in the US and Canada where many fado performances and fado night events take place. Fado music and lyrics can convey feelings of love, joy, sadness, pain passion and loss. This traditional Portuguese music is enjoying a major resurgence, spurred on by UNESCO's designation of fado as "World Immaterial and Cultural Patrimony" The word fado comes from Latin "fatum" meaning “fate” or “destiny”.  A common theme in fado songs is "saudade". The word "saudade" is difficult to translate in any language. It refers to a longing for a happier moment in a person's life and a yearning and hopefulness towards re-living that moment. Fado is usually associated with the cities of Lisboa and Coimbra in Portugal where it flourished.  Fado music is the national song of Portugal. It is very intertwined with Portuguese culture. To truly understand Portuguese culture one needs to experience a Noite de Fados (Fado Night). Lisbon bairros (districts) where fado music flourished include: Mouraria, Alfama, Bairro Alto, Madragoa and  Alcantara. Fado singers (male or female) are usually accompanied by a portuguese  guitar (12 string guitar) and a viola (6 string acoustic guitar)
