has other fine ambassadors finding their way into the wider listening world.
Portuguese singer Ana Moura is one such worthy representative.
Her most recent album 'Leva-Me Aos Fados' is a perfect marvel.
Ms Moura's voice is an extraordinary instrument. She guides us through
the seventeen tracks in this generous collection with restrained passion
and astonishing technical ability. These are not easy songs to sing but
with her gentle vibrato and perfectly focussed line they arrive fully-formed
and blissfully unadorned as though she has plucked them out of the air.
The instrumental ensemble does nothing more or less than is absolutely
necessary to frame Ms Moura's glorious performances with sympathetic
and economic musical grace and understanding.
Jump straight to 'Rumo Ao Sul' for a wonderful example of her craft.
It is a beautiful melody delivered with the kind of reigned-in emotion
which doesn't need to shout from the rooftops to realise its inherent magic.
'Esta Noite', too, is a truly beautiful composition delivered with just the
right amount of emotional distance and absence of sentimentality to
make the words burst into life with subtly refined fire.
There are many treasures to savour here and Ms Moura is the perfect guide.
The first tracks in particular are really good, there are some really nice memorable melodies. But then, for me, it just gets a bit 'soft' and samey. Almost euro ballad territory!
Ana's voice is really nice but slightly without character. It doesn't have the theatrics and drama of Mariza, but neither does it have the downright dismal slit your wrists wonderfulness of Aldina Duarte.
The band is the typical fado one but never really shines, just provides backing. There's a bigger band on one track near the end of the CD which adds a bit of much needed interest.
I always find that Ana disappoints me, with the exception of a great live CD recently - Coliseu - Ana Moura.
My order was received well before the expected delivery date and arrived well packaged and in perfect condition

Love this album, first heard it playing in Porto; have a copy myself and gave it as a present to a couple of friends. Fado with a light contemporary touch.Published 6 months ago by olga sorokina
If you love beautiful music (the guitarra) and a gorgeous voice then you just have to get this! Even if you don't understand Portuguese :)Published 13 months ago by MRS A M MITCHELL
Disappointing if you started listening to Ana with Desfado. Her voice is still sublime but the songs here are mostly average and that backing ensemble and overall production... Read morePublished on 12 July 2014 by Septimus Croft
I don't speak a word of Portugese so she could be singing a bus timetable to me. She sings with elegance, expression and total command. Read morePublished on 7 Oct. 2013 by Marc Lucien Heritier
Anna Moura has an outstanding voice. This whole album is so enjoyable. Perfect for mellowing out when driving. A must for your music library.Published on 27 Sept. 2013 by karen
