Carminho is the great voice of fado and is considered one of the greatest performers in the history of Portuguese music!

«She has perfected a personal vision for what her Fado should be» - Songlines

This march Carminho released her sixth studio album “Portuguesa”. The album is inspired by poetry, fadosingers and the history of fado. Several of the tracks, both lyrics and music has been written by the singer herself. Carminho is both composer and producer and she is exploring traditional fadosongs in inventive ways. The singer says the following on her process:

- I have been exploring the original repertoire of Fado by studying musicians from older days, they left an inheritance for me, so I can understand the tradition in depth.

«Carminho’s music is incredibly her own creation. And that is fabolous to witness» - Songlines

Carminho used compositional techniques from traditional fado and invited contemporary composers to contribute songs and melodies. She says Fado is impacted from many different styles of music.

- Marchas populares, the festivals of Lisboa and various lovesongs from the radio – all of this has influenced fadistas, and this is how they built their repertoire. I was looking into all of this when creating “Portuguesa”!

Carminho was born among the guitars and voices of fado, daughter of the renowned fado singer Teresa Siqueira. In 2009, her first album "Fado," was released, which became one of the most acclaimed albums of the year and decade. It achieved platinum - an enviable result for a debut album.

In the same year, she collaborates with Pablo Alborán in "Perdoname" and becomes the first Portuguese artist to reach number 1 of the Spanish top. In 2012, the second album, "ALMA", debuted in the first place of sales in Portugal and reaches prominent positions in several international tops. After performing in the main venues of Europe and around the World, she also performs in Brazil and her dreams of recording with Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and Nana Caymmi came true.

In 2013, Carminho affirmed herself as one of the most international Portuguese artists, at the same time she is distinguished in Portugal with a Golden Globe and the Prize Carlos Paredes, seeing both albums reach the double platinum award. In 2014, "Canto" is released, leading to Caetano Veloso's first partnership with his younger son Tom, who offered her the unpublished "O Sol, Eu e Tu". In 2016, following an invitation by the family of one of the greatest composers in the world, she recorded "Carminho Canta Tom Jobim" with the last band that accompanied him live in his last ten years. After the great success with the album "Carminho Canta Tom Jobim", she returned with a new album of originals - "Maria" in 2018.

In March 2023 she released her 6th album "Portuguesa" and on 18 November she is backon our stage, we look forward to presenting fado singing at its best!
