Support: Alex Etchart
Ana Moura is without doubt Portugal’s favourite fado singer of the moment, bringing a rare talent to the Portuguese blues. Ana’s stunning new album simply titled Moura follows on from her previous release Desfado which spent three years at the top of the charts in Portugal and went quintuple platinum.
Ana continues to develop a new fado for the 21st century working with a new generation of young Portuguese musicians and songwriters whilst still having remained open to the wider musical world in collaborations with The Rolling Stones, Prince, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Herbie Hancock.
