Here is something people may be interested in, Portuguese Fado. In this case performed by Dulce Pontes probably the best performer and writer of the traditional Fado song. I love the instrumentation in these songs.

Here is the same song with guitar accompaniment (another singer)

The first link didn't work for me so I looked it up and found this ?



Not normally something I listen to but she's got a beautiful voice. That's the amazing thing about music isn't it ? Even if it's a genre you don't normally listen to, the passion of someone's performance can still connect with you. It usually only happens with people who are brilliant at what they do smile.gif

I was expecting someone would mention Mariza biggrin.gif I was supposed to see her in Lisbon in 2003 but, I had a car crash just before that evening and we spent it at the hospital unfortunately.
