“Ms. Moura’s fado never forgets about the music’s past, but it lives in the moment.” —New York Times
Ana Moura’s voice strolls luxuriously through the Portuguese fado tradition, flirting elegantly with pop and broadening the soul-bearing genre to stunning results. The Examiner describes her as “a torch singer with Mediterranean qualities [and] a voice made for melodrama… aesthetically thrilling and emotionally heartbreaking.” Her stage presence embodies the spirit of the iconic fadista, and she has performed with Caetano Veloso, Mick Jagger, and Prince, giving rise to inspired crossover collaborations and performances with musical giants in rock, pop, and jazz.
