The surprise of a fado with a wandering soul.
The modernity of Portuguese music with multiple roots, that are cosmopolitan but also rural, national, but also well-traveled, is present here. In these places where we unexpectedly stop and chat, and the listener is challenged to pass into another time and get in touch with the wanderings of fado trough the paths of the world, happily surrendering to the tropical flavours of chorinhos and mornas, entangling itself with rural voices and flamenco bulerias in a feast of appeal and desire. The bewilderment of a loving loss, reckoning with ife and destiny, encounters in the landscapes of silence and solitude, departure, adventure, luck, longing (saudade) but also returning and feasting are present here. Silences and voices mirroring a harvest of emotions from the four corners of the world, in the apprenticeship of the soul, while going through so many uncertain and mysterious places, charting for us a cartography of a fado in motion, made of points that reach the depths of laughter and crying. By connecting these points, the emotional richness of Carla Pires’ voice draws the lines of CARTOGRAFADO.
