New Fado Sensation Ana Lains Releases Debut Album

Lisbon, Portugal –
Sentidos is Ana Lains debut album on the Different World label, produced by Diogo Clemente. At the studio, Ana had the precious collaboration of Diogo Clemente
the acoustic guitar (credited not only for the production, but also for the
musical direction and arrangements), Fernando Araujo on bass guitar, Bemardo
Couto on Portuguese guitar, Vicky at percussion, Ricardo Mota at cello and Ruben
Alves at accordion, piano and melodica.

Sentidos is a contemporary approach to Fado, where one can find more introspective
themes with simple lullaby melodies, that take us back to our childhood
imaginary. On the other side, there are classical Fado references, as well as
Portuguese traditional music influences.

Born in 1979, at Tomar- Portugal, Ana Lains started singing at early age and always had eclectic musical tastes, from jazz to bossa nova. In 1996, Ana entered the first musical contests, and received several awards, winning the 1999 Grande Noite do Fado. This special prize is also a revelation: according to Ana Lains, it is in Fado that she has found the best way to express and share her feelings with the audience.

At age of 22, Ana has already performed in stages in France, USA, Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany. The first recording experiences took place six years ago, for Songs about Lisbon, just before the invitation to be part of Difference’s compilation Divas Do Fado Novo.
