In the 21st century, Amália Rodrigues continues to be the great ambassador of Portuguese music in the world. The most prestigious Portuguese artist received successive awards for the albums she edited, set-top sales records and became the most relevant Portuguese singer in the world art scene. In this concert, we pay tribute not only to what Amália took to the World but also to what she brought from the World.
In an unrepeatable show, 100 artists from the most varied universes – from Italian and French song to bossa nova, from classical music to folklore, from fado to flamenco, from jazz to tango – pass by the stage of Teatro São Luiz to revive its vast repertoire and transversal, in an original and contemporary approach.
