Move over Mariza: this soulful young fadista sings directly from her heart.
Fans of Fado might like to investigate Joana Amendoeira’s new disc Setimo Fado. As indicated, this is her seventh disc, but it’s only her second album to be released here. Fado’s nostalgic longings for love, life and distant shores are understood universally – across language and culture.
In 17 short songs, with their traditional accompaniment of Portuguese guitar, bass and acoustic guitar (and touches of piano, accordion and cello), Joana Amendoeira sings directly from her heart.
