Ana Moura

  • Portugal
  • Flamboyant fado to the four winds

If fado enjoyed a golden era with Amália Rodrigues, Ana Moura is the contemporary personification of its flamboyant renaissance. A superstar in Portugal, her profoundly sensual and grave timbre and her unique manner of reinterpreting her country’s traditional music have earned her the status of new icon of saudade and allowed her to mesmerise audiences from all walks of life, including Prince and the Rolling Stones. Recognised as one of the greatest fadistas of our era, Ana Moura navigates with ease through contemporary artistic tendencies, a brilliant modern incarnation of an entire musical genre.
