‹ Back to What's On Claudia Aurora

14 Oct 2016

Porto-born fadista Claudia Aurora’s second album, Mulher Do Norte, translates from Portuguese as ‘Woman of the North’.

Written with the clarity of distance, it is a homage to the city, the way of living, that make her the woman she is. Infused with the tingling beauty so peculiar to fado, her performance of classics and original songs (written with Portuguese guitarist Bernardo Couto) are by turns nimbly lyrical and gorgeously melancholic.

Guitar, strings, bouzouki, accordion, and above all Claudia’s voice, combine to create fado with arms open wide to embrace nuances of the other grand traditions of the Iberian Peninsula: flamenco, tango and chanson.
