Teresa Salgueiro's beautiful vocals ride over a lush bed of fine chamber folk, accordion, harmonica, strings and pleasant guitars. The sounds of Brazil and Portugal come together in a rich combination.
Madredeus Concert Films
Runtime: 60 minThe flight distance between Basel and Lisbon is 1672 kilometres, but the distance between the Basel drums and Portuguese fado could be measured in light years. Fado, the music of lower Lisbon, is based on a feeling that the German language cannot even name. Since 1986, Madredeus have spearheaded the long tradition of fado and a woman’s voice was always at the centre, now it is the voice of Beatrix Nunes. The mastermind of the band, guitarist Pedro Ayres
Magalhães, helps to ensure the future of fado with his compositions, which are not museum pieces, but rather a reflection of the realities of Lisbon in 2012. They perform some classic works as well as new songs at AVO SESSION.
