There is no other voice in fado like that of award-winning and chart-topping Ana Moura. Her exquisite voice strolls freely through the Portuguese tradition, flirting elegantly with pop and broadening the soul-bearing genre to stunning results.
Ana grew up steeped in fado and its traditions and although she experimented with pop and rock music during adolescence, her commitment to fado never waned and she became a regular in the local fado culture, releasing her first album to critical acclaim in 2003. She captured the attention of Caetano Veloso, Mick Jagger, and Prince, which brought about inspired crossover collaborations and performances. Ana released her seventh full-length album, Desfado, in 2013, which spent 150 weeks on the Portuguese charts and was certified quintuple platinum, and her 2016 release, Moura, went platinum in her native Portugal.
Ms. Moura’s fado never forgets about the music’s past, but it lives in the moment.” - The New York Times
