‘Carminho has a voice both beautifully translucent and stunning in its emotional charge… it’s impossible not to break when in the presence of this remarkable performer’
Carminho is Portugal’s brightest new star, currently making a stratospheric international ascendance in the footsteps of Mariza and Ana Moura. Live, her voice glistens with potent tenderness as it soars over quintessential Portuguese and acoustic Spanish guitars, with a power that would fill a stadium.
Her first album, Fado, was named the best album of 2011 by Songlines and was a burning statement of intent for her second, Alma. The new album combines the fado songs of the quayside tavernas with new arrangements of Brazilian greats like Vinicius de Moraes, as well as original songs.
