Pedro Moutinho "The Voice and Soul of Fado"
"Pedro Moutinho has a strong voice, a good taste on the repertoire choice, an elegant style, an unbeatable wording and soberness that excludes any remarks."
Joao Miguel Tavares (in Time Out)
The album Um Copo de Sol was a tipping point on Pedro Moutinho's career. He has been awarded the prestigious Amalia Prize in 2008 and became fully recognized in the fado scene as one of its best and soulful voices.
On this album, Pedro is surrounded by some of the greatest Portuguese poets: Pedro Tamen, Aldina Duarte, Manuela de Freitas interpreting melodies imagined by Rodrigo Leao, Tiago Bettencourt and Amelia Muge, some of the best portuguese composers and shows that his voice shines even brighter through these collaborations.
Before this jump on his career, Pedro steps were already being watched. So he has been invited to perform in "Fados" a movie by the acclaimed director Carlos Saura dedicated to the Portuguese music.
Pedro debuted in 2003 with Primeiro Fado and the applause came immediately, followed by Encontro, an album where his voice defied Fernando Pessoa and Antonio Lobo Antunes, amongst other poets.
Now it is the perfect time to look back the road already travelled and anticipate the future by releasing a compilation "Lisboa Mora aqui, o melhor de Pedro Moutinho" ("Lisboa lives here, the Best of Pedro Moutinho") that collects his best
moments and adds a few unheard songs, allowing us to take a glance to what will come.
The new Pedro Moutinho's concert is a travel along his fados, through the deepest corners of his soul and the best moments of the three albums, cornerstones of his status on the Portuguese music scene and on the fado scene in particular.
On this compilation, one will find the songs Pedro claimed as his own, like "Lisboa Mora Aqui", "Copo de Sol" and "Colchetes d'Oiro" and above all, one will find a singular perspective of a voice that has not yet stopped growing, both in intelligence and in experience.
On stage, Pedro is fado: the voice, the eyes, the pose and the gestures.
Pedro embodies the songs and understands the subtleties his chosen style: he flies above the Portuguese guitars, goes around the classical guitar and brings melodies with such a safe voice that it seems like he has been singing since ever.
Actually, Pedro has started singing when he was 11 years old and became a regular at Fado houses that have been witnessing the truth, shown by the lack of distance between the singer and the listener.
