Raquel Tavares

It’s not by chance that Raquel Tavares is one of the most important voices in contemporary fado. Her life is inseparably intertwined with fado and it was fado that was by her side when, as a girl, she dared to step up onto the stage and win, at the age of 12, the Grande Noite de Fado music contest (the first of 14 victories). And it’s fado which has allowed her to collect awards since her debut album was released in 2006. On her most recent album “Raquel” she brings together some of the most important composers of modern Portuguese-language music (such as Caetano Veloso, Mallu Magalhães, António Zambujo and Miguel Araújo) and essential names from the history of fado, like Alfredo Marceneiro and Pedro Homem de Mello. And even in the company of singers like Carlão and Rui Veloso, it’s always fado that persists. Because fado is in Raquel Tavares’ very DNA. It’s what set her apart. And it’s what allows her to dabble with other influences and styles, while never losing sight of her roots.

 

Gospel Collective

Gospel Collective brings together experienced singers from genres as diverse as jazz, soul, rock, afrobeat, hip-hop and funk who all share faith in God, a passion for black spiritual music and a determination to provide a memorable show through sung prayers.

Created at the end of 2010 in Lisbon, this ecumenical group with more than 20 singers includes members of different nationalities (Mozambicans, Guineans, Cape Verdeans, Angolans, Sao Tomeans, Portuguese and Belgians). With songs in Portuguese and English, their repertoire is taken from the different sounds of American gospel music, black spirituals and the traditional songbook as well as soul and urban gospel.
