FADO PRESENTATION:


FADO is a book with 4 CDs that brings together for the first time 100 fados in a single volume along with first-person testimonies of various fadopersonalities. This special edition is the largest anthology produced to date, aiming to be the most representative as well.

 

There is a special reason for this title to have the same name as this fascinating Portuguese musical genre – it is fado what this piece actually portrays, in the words of its own players who have made and continue to make the history of this Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

 

To illustrate the cover we couldn’t have found a better motif than a Portuguese filigree heart wrapping the instruments that provide the sound to this great anthology.

 

The 4 albums presented in this work significantly follow a chronological order from the past to the present, never forgetting the great fado singers of all time like Amália Rodrigues, Alfredo Marceneiro, Hermínia Silva, Fernando Maurício or Maria Teresa de Noronha on the first CD, nor the oldest still in full artistic activity such as João Braga, Carlos do Carmo, Rodrigo or Fernanda Maria on the second CD. In the third and fourth CDS there are the newer generations such as the one which emerged at the end of the 20th century with Camané, Ana Moura, Mísia or Dulce Pontes up to the new voices that surfaced already in the new millennium like Carminho, Ricardo Ribeiro, Ana Laíns or Gisela João and other new voices like Débora Rodrigues, Miguel Ramos, Tânia Oleiro or Maria Emília Reis, which portend a promising future for the most popular Portuguese song.

 

Fadista is not only the one who sings, throughout the recordings we can also listen to the strings of fado by the hands of its great masters such as Armandinho, Raúl Nery, José Fontes Rocha, Francisco Carvalhinho, José Nunes, Jaime Santos or the incomparable Carlos Paredes on Portuguese guitar and other younger generations of guitarists like Custódio Castelo, Ricardo Rocha or Ricardo Parreira. The Portuguese guitar it is a key instrument of

fado, its sonority and potential transcends the boundaries of the genre and became one of the greatest Portuguese icons. In fado the accompaniment

of the voice or the Portuguese guitar by the fado guitar is essential. Here we can listen to the mastery of Martinho d’Assunção in solo (and also accompanying several artists), of Fernando Alvim or José Maria Nóbrega and of the younger Jaime Santos (Jr.) among others, and in the bass the instrument pioneer – The Professor Joel Pina.

 

Musically, there are still a few surprises set aside as the debut of the unreleased song Variações sobre o Fado Sabrosa by the Opus Fado - one of Martinho d'Assunção’s last recordings accompanied by his grandson Vital d'Assunção on guitar and Arménio de Melo on Portuguese guitar. The master

António Parreira along with Francisco Gonçalves (his long-time companion) recovered Armandinho’s Fado Fontalvo especially for this project. From the younger we can further listen to unreleased recordings by Débora Rodrigues, Miguel Ramos, Joana Veiga and the Portuguese-American fado singer Nathalie Pires. In addition to the recovery of a number of old fados that appear here for the first time on CD.

 

FADO is the first book that gathers exclusive first-person testimonials of some of Fado’s key players: fado singers, musicians, composers and poets who

here share their story, their experiences and some amusing episodes that are an essential part of the history of fado and which help us to have a better understanding of this song that Amália said to be a mystery that cannot be explained. These are testimonials from separate generations, to highlight a few; João Braga, Argentina Santos, Camané, Rodrigo, Vicente da Câmara, António Rocha, Carlos Gonçalves, António Parreira, Joel Pina, José Manuel Neto, Ricardo Rocha, Tiago Torres da Silva, José Luís Gordo, among many others.

 

This book includes a few more texts that help us learn a little more about this Portuguese musical expression.

This work celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Martinho d’Assunção with the collaboration of his grandson Vital d'Assunção with unpublished photos and some information unknown to the general public.

 

As the art of making instruments by hand is facing extinction, it is important to register here the statements from major guitar makers for posterity, we visited the workshops of Gilberto Grácio and Óscar Cardoso whose instruments (theirs or their ascendants) can be heard here on most of the recordings.

 

The book is illustrated with a few exclusive photos, others provided by record companies and artists, which illustrate the customary credits chapter and, additionally, historic images kindly provided by the Museu do Fado (Fado Museum).

 

In the same creative, critical and innovative spirit in which we created previous works of reference that became best sellers such as Fado Always! Yesterday Today and Tomorrow or Fado Portugal - 200 years of fado, and always aiming to bring new materials of utmost interest, we bring you FADO, the largest anthology of all time with a vision starting on the core of the people who make the history of this typical Portuguese song to the world – listening to this work promises to be breathtaking from the first to the hundredth fado.
