Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
With her soulful and riveting interpretation of her land's captivating fado style, Portuguese singer Ana Moura has become a leading exponent of this poetic, deeply expressive idiom which personifies the Portuguese psyche as it explores such universal themes as lost love, separation, and longing. As Ana explains, "It's very special because it's all about emotions and feelings. It needs no translation." Fado vocalist Ana Moura was born in the historic city of Santarem, on the Tejo River north of Lisbon. As a girl, Moura was steeped in fado and its traditions, brought up in a family where the music was valued and loved, sung at home and at family gatherings. Moura's emphasis toward her national music began at age 20 when she wandered into one of the many fado houses in her region with a group of friends. She became a regular in the local fado culture. At a casual Christmas party that same year, Moura was discovered by the famous Maria de Fe, who invited Moura to come and sing with her at her house. Her love for the music grew with her reputation, and she began appearing on local television and throughout the regional press. Moura made her recording industry debut with the 2004 Universal Music release "Aconteceu". Performances on a variety of important world stages were soon to follow, including N.Y.C.'s Carnegie Hall, among others. A release each year since that time combined with regular touring on the international world music circuit have positioned Ana Moura as the fadista face of her generation. In June 2007, Mick Jagger invited Ana to come on stage at Alvalade XXI Stadium, in front of 30 thousand people to sing "No expectations" with him. This invitation happened after a Rolling Stones visit to the nightclub where Ana Moura usually performs. In 2009, Ana met with another music legend, Prince. «He came from the US just to watch the show. He heard my records and wants to collaborate on something that he didn't reveal. I've justmet him before the show» disclosed Ana. Ana Moura is currently preparing for her next concerts (European Tour staring in March 2010), where she will continue to present her latest album, "Leva-me aos fados." This fourth album by Ana Moura has just reached Platinum status (over 20 000 units sold). Released in Portugal in October of 2009, and quickly rising at the top of the local charts, the album follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, the multiple award-winner "Para Além da Saudade."
