Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years!

The cover image makes it look like Carminho's a contemporary of Antonio Carlos Jobim – but she's actually a much younger artist – a great contemporary fado vocalist, who serves up some very unusual readings of classic songs by the bossa legend! Carminho's way of phrasing is very ... (Brazil) read moreCD
