I had never heard of Fado prior to your posting and found it on YouTube...thanks for introducing me to it

Have a great first cruise
You NEVER heard of FADO that will not do. One of the best fado singers I had heard is Mariza. Fado is the Portugese verison of soulful sad blues type song. A Fado singer has to revoke pain through her voice it's amazing. We have a large Portuguese community in California. But I hear the Fado live at night in Lisboa when I was eighteen years old. Cristina Branco is another favorite of mine I used her music behind my pictures of Portugal. Both videos are below. Mariza is pure power and Cristina Branco is soft and pretty. Both invoke emotion.
