I was inspired to buy this album when I heard it playing in my local specialist classical/jazz/world music shop. I was browsing through the Bach records and I was just blown away at the beauty and intensity of this music. I discovered Fado through this singer and what a way to discover a new type of music! Ana Moura has a rare moving intensity in her voice- listening to her album, you want to cry and dance for joy all at the same time! I highly recommend this album to anyone who appreciates truly beautiful music.

Guarda-me a vida na mao is a pleasant Fado CD but lacking the excellence attained on her later later cds eg leva-me aos Fado in which her voice has gained much more range and timbre

This is real Fado! Full of emotion and sensibility! If you want to hear real portuguese fado don't miss this singer as well as Cristina Branco and Mafalda Arnauth. Not Mariza please . . . that is not Fado it is merchandising!!

Lovely modern Portuguese ballads 24 Feb 2005
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A beautiful, melodic set of modern Portuguese fados. Vocalist Moura takes a much softer approach to the music than the traditional, keening style popularized by Amalia Rodrigues and her generation of fadistas. She's no less passionate, however, and this is quite a lovely album... Recommended!

just listen to a few tracks! 1 Oct 2005
By Robert Reid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There's not a bad track here. And though Ana Moura is strictly classified as a fado musician, there's quite a range here, from the mournful ballads (e.g. tracks 4) to some upbeat and danceable tracks (e.g. track 5). The common thread is a singer with a remarkably controlled voice (compared to other singers, if not fadistas) and beautiful guitar melodies.

Not sure how to articulate this, but you can always identify sincerity in a voice, a real connection to the music- the lead guitar hitting the notes just hard enough, vocalist singing just loud enough, etc. I hear that here.

I've often heard it said that Portuguese is the most beautiful languages in the world, and I'd have to agree. And while I've always been hesitant to learn Portuguese because I was afraid that the lyrics wouldn't hold up, the liner notes include the English language translations to these traditional fados... you won't be disappointed.

Anna Moura 1 Mar 2006
By T. Schreiber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Portuguese Fado has an irresitble mingling of passion and loss. We are told that it has waned in popularity and its great artists have become relics. Just listen to this fine young woman trace a sampling of its styles, its flavors on this remarkable CD, and you'll hope for it to stay - as it sounds - forever.

Wow! 1 Oct 2006
By Mzrybeth Purcell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Ana Moura sings wonderfully - and with a passion that fits the beauty of the Portuguese lyrics. I am right now listening to "Sou do fado, sou fadista" - one of my favorite songs on any album - and no matter how many times I come back to this recording, it always moves me. This is music that is beautifully arranged, and performed with great feeling.
Ana Moura - Guarda me la vida na mao 24 Jun 2010
By BobbyX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Ana is a very passionate artist. I had the opportunity to see her in concert in Ihla Terceira in the Azors and she was worth every single minute of it.
Nice voice, nice presentation, very down to earth girl.
I was so moved by her songs that I was compeled to get her CDs.
