Portugal’s young fado star begins a two-night residence at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club
After making her UK performing debut at Songlines Encounters Festival back in 2011, Carminho has paved her own unique path in the footsteps of Ana Moura and Mariza. She is now widely considered to be one of the most talented and innovative fado singers of recent years. Citing influences from legends such as Lucília do Carmo and Amália Rodrigues, the Lisbon-born singer’s fado is firmly rooted in the pure tradition of the genre.
Carminho’s first solo recording, 2009′s Fado (reviewed in #77) was a platinum-selling success and one of Songlines’ Best Albums of 2011. This was followed by 2012’s equally powerful Alma (reviewed in #88) – Carminho’s two performances in the intimacy of the famous London jazz club are not to be missed.
