Excellent and haunting examples of the Lisbon fado
(5 out of 5 stars)
"In this cd, Carlos do Carmo sings some of his best known fados. He carries the music extremely well and his guitar accompaniests are excellent.If you undestand Portuguese, Rosa Negra is such a beautiful song, carrying us through the streets of Lisbon using the fate-filled eyes of the poet. The more you listen, the more clear the images become and the listener is able to "see" what do Carmo is singing about. If you do not understand Portuguese, the cd is worthwhile as a primer to the Lisbon fado. Listening closely, enjoy Carlos do Carmo's voice as it carries the song with some incredible guitar work in the background."
