FADO, The Best of Traditional is a special edition that brings together many of the great fado hits of the last century as well as of all times. This work
also includes a brief history of fado in Portuguese and in English so it can be understood by the growing number of lovers of this Portuguese art around the world.
It was in the twentieth century that fado stood out in the world and evolved the most, leaving the legacy we know today - consecrated Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
On this album one can listen to a careful selection of fados played by leading names such as Amália Rodrigues, Hermínia Silva, Alfredo Marceneiro, Maria Teresa de Noronha, Fernando Farinha, Fernanda Maria and many others, never forgetting the great musicians such as Martinho d'Assunção, Carvalhinho or Fontes Rocha, whose school is still present now-a-days.
This work could also be an anthology of the best fados sung at the fado evenings or fado houses since they are the most interpreted by the younger voices. This repertoire is part of the Portuguese imaginary, which also asserts itself in the world with music that could not be more Portuguese than this.
One can still discover a bit more of the history of this song that has enchanted the world, like the origins and the evolution over the 19th, 20th and 21st
Silence, for there will be fado singing!
