Acclaimed bypurists, who even go as far as comparing her to the incomparable Amália Rodrigues, Katia Guerreiro is recognised as one of the great fado singers and a leading ambassador for Portuguese music worldwide. Neither a slave tonostalgia frozen in time, nor a fan of flashy reinvention, she has demonstrated in her own unique way that her fado is modern while remaining true to its roots. Her last album to date — her 10th —Sempre, speaks of the Carnation Revolution of 1974which ended the Salazar dictatorship, and is produced by José Mário Branco, who also produced “Grândola, Vila Morena” the iconic anthem of the peaceful coup.
