Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA – Fado Exquisite Passion is the tile of a new compilation released by Narada World. The recording features four of the genre’s greatest interpreters — Mariza, rising star Cristina Branco, Mafalda Arnauth, and the late legendary Amália Rodrigues.
Fado (from Latin “fatum” meaning fate) is a vocal tradition with roots planted firmly in the 19th century. It is entwined with Portugal’s rich and culturally diverse history, songs delivered from deep in the heart and soul that tell unforgettable stories of love, loss and regret.
