Portuguese vocalist Claudia Aurora is set to perform at the Songlines Fado Series, on Friday, September 29, 2017 at The Pheasantry, Pizza Express in London.
Claudia Aurora’s second album, Mulher Do Norte, translates from Portuguese as Woman of the North. In 2003 Claudia Aurora moved from her beloved Porto to Bristol. She began singing in the kitchen as a remedy to homesickness. She sung fado. Eventually, she wrote her own songs. Impassioned songs of loss, love, longing.
“People don’t understand what I’m singing,” says Claudia, “so I try to make them feel what I want them to feel. Onstage, my heart is in my mouth, and I think maybe people will see it beating.”
In addition to Portuguese traditional roots, Mulher Do Norte embraces other grand old traditions of the Iberian Peninsula: flamenco, tango, gypsy music.
