Surrounded by music since childhood, Cathy Pimentel sings Fado, the traditional Portuguese music known for its gentle melancholy. Cathy Pimentel and her unique band FadoMundo are pleased to present their album Horizonte. With a voice filled with emotion, Cathy sings our world’s beauty, as well as its bitterness. Fado is the music of the soul because even if one does not understand the words, the soul feels the emotion. One can feel the music’s emotional vibrations of the music, of its sung melancholy. Fado is the need to tell a story, to feel an emotion that should be kept secret, but a story too strong to stay hidden. The blend of Fado and other world music performed by FadoMundo results in cultural beauty, warmth from Latin countries, those romantic Italian nights, beautiful Portuguese stories, favourites from Paris or simply, music of a foreign country. Cathy Pimentel explains: ‘Our goal is to blend styles and languages in order to reach as many people as possible and to introduce them to Fado through these different styles. We not only mix different styles of music, we use instruments such as piano and cello in order to modernise the music and make it easier to listen to.
