António Zambujo is the biggest star in Portugal’s contemporary music firmament. A singer with a singular ability to captivate an audience, he has carved out a distinct musical path between Fado and the traditional music of Alentejo.
The rhythmic influence of Brazilian popular music has also played a key role in his work. This sound comes to full fruition in his latest album, a tribute to the songs of Chico Buarque, one of Brazil’s greatest singer-songwriters. The concert will also include favourites from Zambujo’s earlier albums.
“To my ears, Zambujo is one of the best singers in the world today.” (Caetano Veloso)
“Charming and delicate, each word is sung as if the world’s most beautiful woman is Zambujo’s only audience.” (Songlines)
Part of La Linea, the London Latin Music Festival.
