From Portugal: Amália Hoje

To mark the 10th anniversary of fado legend Amália Rodrigues’s death, Nuno Gonçalves of the Portuguese band the Gift was invited to reinterpret selections of Rodrigues’s vast catalogue and was given full liberty to choose the compositions and his collaborators and to create new arrangements. For this homage, Nuno created Amália Hoje with three of Portugal’s most well-known musicians: Sonia Tavares (the Gift), Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell) and Paulo Praça (Plaza). They took nine fados immortalized by Amália Rodrigues and re-interpreted them with a contemporary approach.
