technical comment

  • With her luminous alto voice like a rainbow over the Portugese river Tejo, Carla Pires modernises with joy secular music: a previously unpublished repertoire, refined arrangements with majestic strings, but also a piano and an accordion. Already famous in Portugal for having incarnated the role of Amália Rodrigues in the theatre, she also has the talent to thrill the crowds. With this first international album she lets us discover a neo-fado which is poetic and full of paradoxes, in the clair-obscure style.

    Carla Pires is one of the finest fado singers of her generation. Her concerts has been very successful due to her beautiful voice, a program with a careful selection of fados and also because she is backed by a brilliant trio of musicians.

    Carla Pires started her singing career in 1993. She recorded several soundtracks for TV shows and has also played roles as an actress. In 2002 she was invited to participate in the biggest musical ever produced in Portugal "AMALIA", in which she performed the role of Amalia Rodrigues at a young age. In 2002, Carla Pires recorded 12 hits of Amalia Rodrigues in the CD "O Fado em Concerto", having been backed by a classical string quartet. In 2005, Carla Pires released "Ilha do meu fado" for the Portuguese label Ocarina, from whom this new collection of songs is licenced.
