Gisela João | Viana Bate Forte 2018

| by | HIDDEN TRACKS | 0 comments:

Portuguese fado singer Gisela João was born in 1983, in the northern Portuguese city of Barcelos. She isn’t just a powerful voice. Her voice evokes fado as a music of the streets, where it began, infused with all the passion and honesty of an artist rewriting tradition in her own name. She treats fado’s heritage with both deep respect and modern perspective. Gisela João’s first self-titled CD (released in 2013) within two weeks of release went straight to the top of the Portuguese charts. Singer Gisela João’s second CD, Nua, extends her trailblazing approach to fado-Portugal’s most emblematic music-with a fresh … Continued

Elisa Rodrigues | Viana Bate Forte 2018

| by | HIDDEN TRACKS | 0 comments:

The Portuguese singer Elisa Rodrigues is one of the most exciting discoveries in recent years on national jazz. With a deep powerful voice she is not strictly a jazz singer, but her love for jazz conquers all, adding something new even when she reinvents songs.

The members of 47 de Fevereiro come from diverse previous projects as: Touro Retimbrar, Zen, Anger, Souq, Fadomorse, Mi Ku Bô, Teia, Funkyard, Turn Off, Stopestra, Xícara, Mina. They have joined together in 2015 and in March 2018 edited the debut album, “Luta pela Manutenção”. 47 de Fevereiro is not a typical rock band. They use an association to the world of amateur football, and the struggle for the maintenance in the regional Championships or the second division as an allusion to the whole vision of life and our reality of everyday life. With a very peculiar approach, their experimental rock, within a spectrum … Continued
