Links & Notes:

Helder Moutinho is the brother of 2 other well known fado singers: Camané and Pedro Moutinho.

Helder Moutinho had his first album in October 1999. The album "Luz de Lisboa" received in 2004 the ‘Amália Rodrigues’ Prize.

At the end of 2008 the 2nd album "Que fado é este que trago" was produced by António Pinheiro da Silva with musical direction by Ricardo Parreira.

‘Fado (translated as destiny or fate) is a music genre which can be traced from the 1820s in Portugal, but probably with much earlier origins. In popular belief, Fado is a form of music characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor. However, in reality Fado is simply a form of song which can be about anything, but must follow a certain structure.’ (wikipedia)
