Album Review
Reviewed 2012-01-29
Sexy contemporary fado with a richly orchestrated sound. Lovely vocals, lots of strings, sophisticated arrangements. By a Brazilian pop band paying tribute to the work of the great fado diva, Amalia Rodrigues. While respecting the roots of fado, the updated sound gives it a fresh vibrancy without losing its passion.

*1. Starts relaxed, then picks up w/lots of cinematic drama.
*2. Slow and sexy male vocals with lyrical strings adding lushness.
3. Midtempo w/a combination pop/jazz feel.
4. A funky urban groove into a mid/upbeat pop jam.
5. Squeaky electronica into a hip midtempo pop wiggle.
*6. Slow, luscious female vocals, strings, drama.
7. A big and somewhat chaotic pop mash-up. Fast.
*8. Slow nostalgia, w/a soft French café come-hither feel. Very Serge...
9. Very quiet, almost translucent. Slow, fragile, romance.
