Canção is my first solo album, it means “Song” in Portuguese, and its a beautiful collection of 22 beautiful songs, embracing, Fado, the music of my homeland, Portugal; the passionate tunes of the tango maestro, Astor Piazzolla, the beautiful songs of the Brazilian composer Camargo Guarnieri and two songs, composed for me by the Portuguese composer, Daniel Bernardes one of the most prominent composers of his generation.
I am so thrilled with the response we have been having so far. It's very interesting to see how it appeals to such a wide audience, even if culturally it's very rooted in my own cultural roots.This shows , how we can use music as a link in the intercultural chain of today’s society. It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand Spanish, Portuguese or French, the universal language of music makes it possible for you to appreciate it.
“Canção” has been released by Artway Records and has been supported by Fundação GDA.
