Ana Moura: Desfado

A strong unwavering contralto, excellent on the sad-hopeful tone of a song such as "Quando o Sol Espreitar de Novo".

Ana Moura: Coliseu

The familiar fado themes of love, loss, uncertainty, grief, pain, and disquiet are all hymned, while the city of Lisbon acts as a metaphor for other cities of the heart.

Ana Moura: Leva-me aos Fados

Another excellent showcase for Moura's art. Backed by Custódio Castelo's subtle guitar, she evokes a number of fado's most important elements: its sense of melancholy, of fatalism, and of itself.
