About

It is said that a culture can be better understood by listening to its music than by learning its language. In Portugal this music is the fado: bittersweet, melancholic sounds that reflect the desire for something that has been lost forever. Fernando Pessoa called this sadness without a reason "leafing through the soul."

Maria Joao is not a fadista – and yet her playing with tones is rooted in this tradition.
