A SAFETY WAY INTO THE MODERNIZATION OF FADO
«They can even refuse to admit that it is Fado what they play, because it isn’t. But the truth is that Mitó’s
voice is the voice of a Fado singer, that Varatojo plays the Portuguese guitar (even in an unconventional
way) and that Aguardela gives a swing to the bass as if in search of the old Fado. And the truth is
that A Naifa was the best thing that ever happened to Fado and to its connection to modern times.
The new album is another step in search of that modernity, and as wonderful as the first, Canções
Subterrâneas. A Naifa’s sound. The poems, one of the best in Portuguese language. That is a lot. »
