This year, Sou do Fado is leaving the squares and taking the music of Lisbon to some of the city’s most beautiful gardens and parks. Four fadistas of differing styles will be performing their latest work, accompanied by virtuoso musicians at these open-air concerts.

“Só a cantar” is Duarte’s new CD. A psychologist by profession, Duarte’s lover is Fado, a long-held passion. His musical training allows him to live his art in different ways. Duarte is an author, composer and performer (vocals and guitar), a rarity amongst fadistas. But perhaps that’s the secret behind the soul in his words, vocals and music. His sense of feeling, nurtured in the Alentejo, is fed on the life stories he’s exposed to as a psychologist and manifests itself in both new compositions and traditional fados. And it’s in the intimacy and cosiness of Lisbon’s Senhor Vinho fado house that he regularly rehearses and experiments artistically with those experiences. For Duarte, respect for the legacy of fado is essential in the construction of a unique object of art, which must be regarded as an architectural restoration. Based on tradition, a contemporary work of art is created.
