On the third day of the festival, the world’s most successful fado singer, ANA MOURA, will take to the stage. Representing perhaps the most beautiful musical tradition in Portugal, a melancholic, bittersweet style, she was the youngest fadista to be nominated for a Dutch Edison Award. Her musical talent and exceptional performance have been recognised with two Golden Globe and two Amalia Awards.
She has released six albums throughout her career and has the biggest-selling Portuguese album of all time. Her fifth album, Desfado, was at the top of the sales charts in Portugal for 6 weeks, in the top 10 for 117 weeks, in the overall charts for 200 weeks, and was certified six times platinum. In 2015, she released her last, 6thstudio album, Moura, which took her to the top of the Portuguese albums chart and stayed at number one for a month.
Moura has toured the world, performing in the UK, Canada, Austria, Germany and the USA. In 2007, she shared the stage with the Rolling Stones in Lisbon, where she sang No Expectationswith Mick Jagger. She also worked and performed with Prince, who became a fanatical fan. In 2011, he even went incognito to see her singing at the Sziget Festival in Budapest.
Budapest Bossanova Quartet
Opening act starts at 8:00 pm
The Budapest Bossanova Quartet are authentic representatives of Brazilian music in Hungary. The bossa novas and sambas in their repertoire are in their original intonation, in Portuguese. However, by means of their composition and improvised instrumental solos, the band is significantly influenced by the style of North American jazz. Yet the focus of their music, built on all these traditions, is that this music is basically a compilation of songs, thus the guitar, bass and the occasional vocal solos become like bossa novas in a sophisticated way.
