Carminho at the 2012 London Jazz Festival
A concert performance by a rising star of Portuguese fado, Carminho. The singer was recorded at the South Bank earlier this week as part of the 2012 London Jazz Festival. Introduced by Andrew McGregor.
28-year-old Carminho combines traditional soul-searching, fado songs with modern arrangements of the music of Brazilian great masters. Her critically acclaimed debut album was deemed one of the best in 2011, and her new recording as well as her live concerts all over the world have made one critic say 'Carminho has a voice both beautifully translucent and stunning in its emotional charge'.
