▶ Amália Rodrigues "Gaivota" Live - YouTube ~ As a kid, I couldn't stand this music. It was my parents music and I had other, "cooler" sounds to explore. Now, everytime I hear this music which is called 'fado' and which is the "most Portuguese" music, it reminds me of the times I visited Portugal, as a child, and the family I had there. I can't hear Amália without thinking about those times. A real tear jerker, for me.

Portugal - FADO:  A shawl, a guitar, a voice and heartfelt emotion - these are the ingredients of Fado, a music genre which can be traced to the 1820s in Portugal. The music symbolizes the feeling of an irreparable loss; the domination of the soul and heart over reason, which leads to acts of passion and despair, and reveal such a black and beautiful sorrow.   Mariza is one of the most popular interpreters with a voice reminiscent of traditional divas of the musical form.
