An evening of fado with Ana Moura
Fado is world-weariness made music: its melancholy, atmospherically intense songs deal with unfulfilled longings, lost loves and social injustices. Hardly anyone expresses the emotions of the musical style that originated in Portugal’s poor quarters better than Ana Moura, who is hailed internationally as the “Queen of Fado”. With her warm, slightly smoky voice and expressive delivery, she has inspired many, including pop greats like the Rolling Stones and Prince.
