Canto by Misia
Sain Alizada | Samsun, Turkey | 08/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one my most favorite fado records. Canto is another one of Misia's experiments with instrumentation and commissioning lyrics by contemporary poets. Almost all songs, except for the last instrumental track Balada de Coimbra by Jose Eliseu, are composed by the Portuguese guitar legend Carlos Paredes.

de Bourgogne makes a heart-breaking gem of Balada de Coimbra. Misia is at her best at Ah Nao II, and Tia Minha Gentil is just like sitting in a restaurant at Cais da Ribeira in Porto with a bottle of port and bacalhau, pondering about fatalism and exquisite frustration about thwarted love and matters that cannot ever be changed...
