"EXISTIR is the second album recorded by Madredeus, and it is truly a jewel... Released in 1990, it brings many remarkable songs, and the first worldwide success of the group, O PASTOR. This piece, hard to describe or classify in any musical rythm or school, is still one of the most famous songs of the group. Teresa Salgueiro's voice were already marvelous, and the fine harmonies and arrangments, joining instruments like the cello and the classic guitar, the accordion and the keyboards, made Madredeus the outstanding success they are up to now... After all, who can survive emotionless after listening to songs like O POMAR DAS LARANJEIRAS?"
Great for Healing!

"I bought this when I was feeling real low. I am Portuguese. It made me cry, but remember my lovely grandfather, Larry Cunha who played the mandolin. Now, my other Grandparents are getting old. I play this CD for tehm and they love it. Very comforting and breathtaking even if you aren't a Portuguese girl!"

"If you like to be "in", you'd rather see a blockbuster instead of a minor art-movie, yo prefer Dan Brown instead of Paul Auster, you feel thrilled with Britney Spears, or you're keen on the latest punk band or rock solist, this is not for you. Madredeus is far from being popular, counting with a large amount of followers who admire them for the originality and beauty of their work. Teresa Salgueiro is the heart of the group and her voice seduces even the stones. Marvelous singing, meaningful lyrics (yes, I do undestand portuguese), fascinating arrangements. The problem with Madredeus is similar to the one you get while eating peanuts or potato chips: you know when you start listening but you never know when you will end: their tunes are addictive. "Existir" is a wonderful first step towards their music, but try to get "Ainda" first, an album they composed for a Wim Wenders documentary, "Lisbon Story". That will kill you right after. Anyhow, they're all first-rate albums."
