The rough guide to Fado by Duarte( Recording )

4 editions published in 2012 in Portuguese and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Neues Album der jungen Fado-Sängerin. Cristina Branco beherrscht nicht nur den zutiefst traurigen Fadogesang, bei ihr schwingt auch immer wieder drängende Lebensfreude durch. Die Texte der Lieder (im Booklet auf portugiesisch, englisch und französisch abgedruckt) stammen von namhaften Literaten und Autoren. "Und tatsächlich füllt Cristina auch auf 'Kronos' die schöne alte Form mit neuen Inhalten. Sowohl textlicher Art, für uns leider weniger verständlich, als auch musikalischer. Neben den klassischen Fado-Zutaten, den klagenden Gesängen, der runden, zwölfsaitigen portugiesischen Gitarre mit ihrem glasklaren Harfensound und der Viola baixa zaubert das Ensemble von Cristina noch Akkordeon, Bass und Violine hinzu. Herausgekommen ist dabei ein Mix von wunderschönen Liedern, die nicht nur tiefe Melancholie, sondern auch Hoffnung ausdrücken. Lieder, die nicht nur traurig vor sich hinschleichen, sondern teils von fast munterer, aufgeweckter Gangart sind ... 'Kronos' wurde so ein feines Sommeralbum, das zu sonniger wie melancholischer Stimmung passt" (www.monstersandcritics.de). 1. Trago Um Fado 2. Eterno Retorno 3. Bomba Relógio 4. Longe Do Sul 5. Margarida 6. Meu Calendário 7. Bichinhos Distraídos 8. Tango 9. Eléctrico Amarelo 10. Rapaz Do Trapézio

C'est à José Afonso, icône de la culture populaire portugaise du 20ème siècle que l'artiste a décidé de consacrer cet album. Une somptueuse et bouleversante évocation de l'univers du poète qui pourrait bien s'imposer comme une des ouvres les plus personnelles de la chanteuse

Alegria by Cristina Branco( Recording )

5 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cristina Branco gehört zu den bekannten jüngeren Fadistas. Ihr ist aber auch immer an Grenzüberschreitung gelegen. Im weitesten Sinne könnte das mit Fado-Pop beschrieben werden, Elemente von Jazz fliessen ebenfalls mit ein. Die sehnsuchtsvolle Stimme steht auch hier stets im Mittelpunkt. Eine etwas andere Fado-Platte

An exceptional concert featuring not less than twelve female singers coming from around the globe to perform in the stunning greek theatre of Taormina, in Sicily. Ideally located in front of the sea, with a splendid view over the Etna, the greek theatre of Taormina is one of Sicily's milestones. Every summer, concerts and other performances still take place in this uncomparable set. In 2001, 12 renowned divas of song from all over the world gathered for the "Festival of the Last Prima Donnas." This festival celebrated the talents of American soprano Jessye Norman, the "Voice of America" Ami Koita, Dee Dee Bridgewater, regarded as the "new Ella Fitzgerald," Israeli pop singer Noa and her Palestinian counterpart Amal Murkus, as well as Esma Reszepova, known as the "Edith Piaf of the Gypsies," and Neapolitan singer Lina Sastri "the incarnation of Italy's songs."
