Maja presents “Fado é Sorte” at Museu do Fado, February 16th

​​​​​​​

Fado is luck, luck is destiny and the destiny is Fado. This was the starting point for Maja Milinkovic, Bosnian fado singer to reconsider changing the course of her life due to the passion she felt when hearing fado for the first time in Amalia’s voice, with a career longer than 10 years with 3 original records released and several awards won in her homeland as singer and composer.


The name Amália – the great inspiration for Maja – sounds like “AMAJLIJA”, wich means amulet in Slavic and it was impossible not to resemble her destiny from this luck amulet. After her first fado record, «Fado Meu” (2013), and the release of the single «Znam za rijeku» (2015) – a Slavic version of the Portuguese song «Sei de um Rio» - , Maja releases now the album «Fado é Sorte», where you can listen her interpretation of traditional fado along with new songs, some of them authored by Maja. The single «Sou a chuva» from «Fado é Sorte», (music: Pedro Pinhal/lyric: Rodrigo Serrão), was released last November and pleased the public, that is now eager to know the full album, about to be available on February 16 th . Beside «Sou a chuva», «Fado é Sorte» the disc contains 14 more songs, from traditional to contemporary fado and, also, two “sevdalinka” (traditional Bosnian music) tracks that Maja dressed as fado wich pays a tribute to her roots.


«This album is the expression of my love for fado and my will of sharing it with the world», says Maja.
