Merely in her twenties, Portugese singer Ana Moura is one of her generation’s most venerated fado artists. With music that speaks of the pain of separation, unrequited love, and longing, she has become a rising star in Europe and earned critical acclaim in her North American concerts. Moura has recorded three CDs, including Aconteceu, which was nominated for an Edison Award.
Several tours will take place throughout the U.S. to promote and celebrate Moura’s latest effort, Para Além da Saudade. She will participate in the WMI (World Music Institute) concert series. In addition, she will take part in the SMF (Savannah Music Festival) as the opening act for Afro-Pop Queen, Angelique Kidjo. She will perform at the Gallo Center For The Arts in a program entitled, Ana Moura: The New Fado as well as the 9th annual SF Jazz Spring Festival.
