Ana Moura

Vocal Pop Fado African Mediterranean
Ana Moura

This extraordinary soulful singer is Portugal’s leading fadista and one of the most fully fledged singers of her generation. Ana Moura has performed at the most important venues and festivals around the globe and artists such as the Rolling Stones and the late Prince have been huge fans. Live she is a very intense experience reminding in her aura the great old fado legends. Her voice is absolutely captivating and her elegance is stunning. She excites audience, press and promoters alike.

Ana Moura has modernized the fado and made it popular again for a younger generation. She added a drummer and a keyboarder to her classic fado guitar trio (which includes the best Portuguese guitar player). “Desfado”, a modern classic, was the best-selling record of this decade in Portugal. The album, which has truly globalised Ana Moura, has remained in the top ten for 5 years since its release in 2012! Her latest release “Moura” (2015), also produced by 4-times grammy-award winning Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Madeleine Peyroux) was also very successful with weeks on #1.

Ana Moura’s career is currently the most vibrant and thriving of any other Portuguese performer, as evidenced by the 300,000 records she has sold, her nearly one dozen awards, which include 2 Golden Globes, 2 Amália awards and 1 Best Artist nomination for the Songlines Music Awards, and joint performances with such music icons as Prince, The Rolling Stones, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Herbie Hancock.

There is no other fado voice like Ana Moura’s. A voice that traipses freely through tradition, but that also takes time to flirt elegantly with pop music, to broaden the scope of this Lisbon song form in a highly personal way. But what really sets her apart is not just the deep and sensual timbre that few others can produce, it is her adroitness at instantly transforming into fado any melody she lends her voice to. For instance, listen to “Brown Sugar” and you’ll melt away! There is practically no fuse on this emotional explosion, fired unhesitatingly at the listener’s heart.

Ana Moura beweist in Berlin, dass man zu portugiesischem Fado auch tanzen kann
Berliner Zeitung, 01.19.2023
Radikaler denn je bricht Ana Moura mit den Vorgaben des Fado. Der junge Elektronikproduzent aus Lissabons Musikszene Pedro da Linha hat mitgemischt; Effekte wie Autotunes klingen an, der Beat ist straffer und wummiger denn je.
Berliner Zeitung, 01.14.2023
„It’s music that exposes every vocal nuance, and Ms. Moura had nothing to hide. Her lush alto voice can be smoky and hesitant or clear and pointed, working up to a tremulous insistence that hints at fado’s Arabic connections… Ms. Moura’s fado never forgets about the music’s past, but it lives in the moment."
The New York Times
"In ihrem neuen Album 'Desfado' macht sich die Sängerin ein wenig frei von der Tradition des reinen Fado, bringt eigens für sie komponierte englischschrachige Lieder mit hinein und auch Elemente von Jazz und Folklore, bleibt dabei aber immer nahe der Stimmung."
Taunus Zeitung, 08.12.2014
"An intensity and quiet emotion that should make her a major global star"
"Bei Ana Moura ist der Fado dann auch weniger Klage als vielmehr brennende Leidenschaft und große Sehnsucht. Und sie bringt ebenso sehr viel Lust in die Gesänge. Dies mit einer Stimme, die ganz aus Samt und Sinnlichkeit besteht. Große Gefühle werden schon in die instrumentalen Einleitungen hineingetragen: in die fein ornamentierten Melodien der gitara portugesa, deren zarter Silberklang die instrumentale Seele des Fado ist."
