Fado - Verschenen op 27 november 2020 | Parlophone Portugal

For all fado musicians, fans and a fortiori singers, Amália Rodrigues is like the centre of gravity. An unavoidable figure for everyone who either wants to listen to or develop the genre. As an icon of an entire country, a symbol of Portugal’s soul, the fadista’s aura has not wavered since she died in 1999. 2020 would have marked her 100th birthday. Mariza, Portugal’s current most-popular singer, is celebrating her 20-year-long career by dedicating an entire album to her elder. Canta Amália contains a selection of Saint Amalia’s most popular songs, from one of her earliest hits (Foi Deus, 1952) to one of her last (Lágrima, 1983) and focuses on standards from her golden age in the 1960s, when she worked with the brilliant composer Alain Oulman (Gaivota, Fado Português, Estranha Forma de Vida, Povo Qui Lavas No Rio, Cravos de Papel and Com Que Voz). Mariza approaches this repertoire with respect, but also with the emotional distance that characterises her relaxed approach to the normally tear-inducing genre. Mariza has once again called up Jaques Morelenbaum for this album – a Brazilian producer, arranger and cellist who has previously worked with Tom Jobim and Caetano Veloso. He was also the mastermind behind one of the highlights of Mariza’s career, the 2005 album Transparente. The strings come out in full force, making the arrangements – which are sometimes jazzy and at other times Brazilian-sounding – as lush as a 1950s Hollywood blockbuster. Yes, Canta Amália was recorded in Rio, though the Brazilian accents also serve as a nod towards Amália’s recording debut in that same city in 1945. And while the Brazilian Lula Galvão’s guitar sometimes unveils Hispanic accents, it’s probably to evoke the diva’s origins. Born in Beira Baixa, a former Portuguese province bordering Spain, the local music strongly influenced her sound. But of course, the crystalline notes of the unmistakable Portuguese guitar, played by two of the greatest contemporary practitioners - Bernardo Couto and Luís Guerreiro - take us back to the heart of Lisbon’s Alfama, an old neighbourhood where Fado was born. This album never tries to be overly intimate or traditional. It is destined for large stages capable of hosting large orchestras and stars such as Mariza or Amalia, who was the first Fado singer to be celebrated in a prestigious concert hall. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Terra voelt als een poging om Mariza muzikaal mainstream te maken. Ze heeft zichzelf al bewezen in de voorhoede van het fado-genre, als een van de meest vooraanstaande performers van deze emotionele Portugese muziekstijl, en er bestaat geen twijfel over dat zij een geweldige stem heeft. Maar de toevoeging van verscheidene gastmuzikanten, zoals Chucho Valdés, Ivan Lins, en Tito Paris onder andere, lijkt de naden tussen fado en andere genres te openen, waaronder Braziliaanse muziek en jazz. Dit gebeurt op relatief subtiele wijze, en ze houdt de basis behoorlijk ferm in de fado (hoor bijvoorbeeld het glorieuze “Ja Me Deixou” aan). Haar duet met Paris op “Beijo de Saudade” is een hoogtepunt, waarin de stemmen op geweldige wijze op elkaar inspelen. © Chris Nickson /TiVo
