Fado Singer Camané, Jazz pianist Mário Laginha & Orchestra of the Algarve in Portimão

Camané sings "Sei de um Rio"

Camané, is one of the highest acclaimed of the ‘new fadistas’.
He is currently on tour and presenting his most recent and excellent work: ‘Sempre de Mim’ (Always from Me)

This time he is joined by the jazz pianist and composer Mario Laginha and the Orchestra of the Algarve.

The show will cover the work of the fado singer from his first album in 1995 (Uma noite de Fados) up to his most recent work.

Sempre de Mim heralds the return of the fadista after a 7 year period. The work with 16 tracks was launched last April and climbed rapidly to the top of the Portuguese charts: a rare occurrence for a Fado album.

Camané will be accompanied by the Orchestra of the Algarve conducted by Cesário Costa and the music will be arranged by Mario Laginha.

Links & Notes:
