"The most beautiful male voice of fado today." -Le Figaro

Thursday, Jan 30

8pm $31 adv, $35 door

With his earthy and atmospheric songs, honeyed tones and sensitive interpretations, faso sensation Antonio Zambujo pushes Portugal's soulful folk tradition into the contemporary.

"...what you hear in Zambujo is something that goes deeper. He.. makes us think about João Gilberto and everything that came into Brazilian music because of him." -Caetano Veloso

Born in southern Portugal, Zambujo infuses his fado with Cante Alentejano - the male choral chanting tradition of his birthplace. He also incorporates elements of Brazilian Bossa Nova, M.P.B. and jazz, adding a playfulness and inventiveness to the tradition.

After recording his first album O mesmo fado in 2002, Zambujo won the prestigious Radio Nova FM prize for the 'Best New Fado Voice" and the Amália Rodrigues Foundation's Award for Best Male Fado Singer. He has recorded four more albums since: Por meu cante (2004); Outro Sentido (2007 - named 'Top of the World' album by Songlines) and Guia (2010), which are all available in the US on the World Village label. This tour will celebrate Zambujo's latest album, Quinto (2012), which was just released on Universal.
