LONDON Ronnie Scott’s
47 Frith Street, Soho
“Carminho is the great voice of fado and one of the most international Portuguese artists ever”
Carminho was born among the guitars and voices of fado, the daughter of the renowned fado singer Teresa Siqueira. Fado, her first album, opened the hearts of Portugal to her voice, and was voted Album of the Year by Songlines magazine, followed by Alma and Canto, records which took her to a worldwide audience, and huge success and respect in Brazil. Her last British concert was at the Barbican, featuring material from her classic album Carminho Sings Tom Jobim. She's just released her new album Maria (the name comes from her full name - Maria do Carmo) on Warners, and to celebrate she returns to Ronnie Scotts for two special shows.
A voice both beautifully translucent and stunning in its emotional charge. It’s impossible not to break when in the presence of this remarkable performer
