Carminho made her public debut at the Coliseu de Lisboa at the age of 12. In 2009 she released her first album, Fado, which Time Out considered to be “the biggest fado discovery of the last decade”. It was released in the UK in 2011 and was nominated by the renowned British magazine Songlines as one of the ten best albums of that year. 2011 also saw her international career really take off. In 2012 she launched her second album, Alma (Soul), which went straight to number one in Portugal and also reached high positions in various international charts. In late 2012, having performed more than 90 concerts in Portugal and abroad, Carminho recorded music with Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and Nana Caymmi, resulting in a new version of Alma that featured her three new collaborators. In 2014 Carminho released Canto (Song), her third album. Two years later, she recorded Carminho Canta Tom Jobim along with the musicians that played live with António Carlos Jobim.

Filipe Monteiro is Tomara, the first solo project. He began with piano and guitar lessons, then Banda Filarmónica de Loures, garage bands and Atomic Bees, with whom he recorded Love Noises and Kisses. As a music and producer he worked with Rita Redshoes and Márcia and has several DVDs, documentaries and music videos for artists as Paulo Furtado, David Fonseca and António Zambujo.
