Two women of Portuguese roots bring us an evening of new-generation traditional music.

In the footsteps of Cesária Évora, Cape Verdean singer-songwriter Sara Tavares “trades in understatement. She strokes rather than strums guitar chords … and her soft close-to-the-mike voice specialises in gentle yearning.” (The Independent)

Following the path of Amália Rodrigues, Carminho is one of the most talented and innovative fado singers of her generation, performing traditional and contemporary fado, as well as jazz, Brazilian pop, and Portuguese folk music.
