Ana Moura

Ana Moura possesses a voice that wanders freely through tradition, while still flirting elegantly with pop music. But what distinguishes her is not just a low and sensual timbre; she’s able to turn any melody instantly into fado. It’s an immediate fuse, an emotional explosion set off with no regard for the hearts of those listening. Her album ‘Desfado’ (2012) is the bestselling record in Portugal in the last decade and took this fadista on a tour that lasted more than three years. In 2015, Ana Moura released ‘Moura’ and has filled iconic concert halls around the world, such as the Olympia (Paris), the Barbican Centre (London), Carnegie Hall (New York) and Sydney Opera House. In 2017, with a career spanning 15 years, she released a ‘best of’ album. More than an international fadista, Ana Moura is today a true global star and has shared the stage with music legends like Prince, The Rolling Stones, Caetano Veloso, U2 and Benjamin Clementine. We know that Ana Moura’s song was born out of fado, but don’t know where it’ll end or what the future has in store for her

Sopa de Pedra 

Sopa de Pedra is a group dedicated to singing traditional songs a capella which emerged in Porto in 2012 thanks to 10 youngsters belonging to various musical and artistic backgrounds. Lending an artistic discipline to traditional Portuguese music, they aim to freshen it up through new harmonisations and polyphonic arrangements which explore its complexity, richness and depth. By so doing, they want to keep it alive and interesting for new generations.
