António Zambujo

António Zambujo is a singer of amazing finesse. Considered the guarantor of a tradition and an innovative pioneer, Zambujo is as much an heir to Amália Rodrigues as he is to Chet Baker and João Gilberto. Accompanied by a clarinet and trumpet, Portuguese guitar, double bass and his own guitar, Zambujo’s velvety voice sparkles across his sensual music with incomparable charm and elegance. His first two albums Quinto and Rua da Emenda, which reflect the varied mix of cool jazz with soft bossa and chanson, have remained over several years in the Portuguese Album Top 30. António Zambujo performs for an always growing number of fans in Portugal and abroad and sold out the big concert halls in Portugal in February 2016. He's already successful in France and has played in concert houses around the world.

His album "Até Pensei Que Fosse Minha" was nominated for the 2017 Latin Grammy Award for "Best MPB Album".

In 2018 his album "Do Avesso" reached the number 1 position in the Portuguese album charts shortly after being released.

Press
„Antonio Zambujo singt den Fado, spielt Gitarre und vermischt ihn auf diesem Album mit einer raffinierten Prise Jazz um einen faszinierenden und verführerischen Mix aus Herz, Seele und Verstand zu erschaffen."
Jazz Weekly
"Mr. Zambujo is not a cafe belter like some younger fado singers. His tone is always intimate as he sings about solitude and lost love. The microphone is his ally."
The New York Times, 05.13.2012
"Zambujo gehört zur neuen Generation der portugiesischen Liedermacher. Er begann als Fado-Sänger, aber seine Musik vermischt unterschiedliche Stile wie Bossanova, Vocal Jazz und Folk. Ebenfalls wichtig sind seine südportugiesischen Wurzeln, er stammt aus dem Alentejo."
Euronews, 12.13.2015
