This is a unique opportunity to see Carminho in her home town of Lisbon in the Centro Cultural de Belém. Carminho debuted singing in public at age of twelve, in Coliseu de Lisboa. Living closely with some of the greatest figures of the true essence of fado, Carminho still sings, occasionally, in the Taverna Embuçado, a famous Fado House of the Portuguese capital. In 2009 she released her first album “Fado”, and was immediately considered the greatest Fado revelation of the last decade by Time Out Magazine, and one of the ten best albums by the British magazine Songlines.
In 2013, Carminho established herself as one of the most international Portuguese artists, taking her voice to the four corners of the world, being distinguished in Portugal with a Golden Globe Award and with the Carlos Paredes Award.
Maria do Carmo Carvalho Rebelo de Andrade was born in Lisbon on the 20th of August 1984, and she is one of the most renowned Portuguese fado singers of the so called “New Fado Generation”. Carminho, as she is known, comes from a family of musicians, since her mother, Teresa Siqueira, was also a fado singer.
She has an eclectic style since she also signs musics from other genres, like Portuguese folk music, Brazilian popular music, jazz, pop, and rock, having worked with Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and also Nana Caymmi. After being featured on Pablo Alborán’s “Perdóname”, she become extremely popular also in Span.
