Diana Vilarinho – October 7
Only 20 years old, Diana Vilarinho is considered one of the most promising fado singers of the new generation. He won the “Grande fado night” in 2008, and participated, twice, in the biggest fado festival in Portugal, the “Caixa Alfama Lisboa”.
Along her route, she passed the most emblematic fado houses in Lisbon and stepped on large Portuguese stages. She recently won over the public in Spain, more specifically in Asturias, performing at the Festival “VIII Noches de Fado, Divas”.
Peu Madureira – October 14
Pedro Madureira (Peu) remembers, from a very young age, singing fado. In family evenings, fado has always been a companion because it is well remembered that there is a cult for music. Peu Madureira, since that time, has sung in different fado houses, parties, places and countries. In 2015, he participated in the Caixa Alfama Festival. He likes traditional fado and fado singers like Alfredo Marceneiro, Maria Teresa de Noronha, João Ferreira-Rosa, Teresa Tarouca, Teresa Siqueira, José Pracana or João Braga.
Maura Airez – October 21
Although very young, Maura transmits a strength and magnetism that do not go unnoticed. She was the winner of the first edition of the contest “O Meu Fado” promoted by Rádio Sim. Accumulating the experience that only the fado houses can provide, it has been present in the most important fado events, having been considered the great revelation of the edition, 2016, from the Caixa Alfama Festival.
In 2017, she participated in the Fado Festival of Morocco, together with Carminho, Luís Guerreiro and Rodrigo Costa Félix. She was also present at the NOS Alive Festival on the EDP Fado Café stage, at Belém Art Fest at the Presidency Museum. More recently, she participated in the project “Identidade F” where she stepped on the stage of the small auditorium of the Centro Cultural de Belém.
Francisco Salvação Barreto – October 28
Francisco Salvação Barreto was born in Lisbon in 1982. He started singing at the age of 14, among his family and friends. He is a landscape architect in a studio in Lisbon. He participated in several events in Portugal and abroad, at the invitation of Embassies on the occasion of the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union, with the aim of promoting Fado as an expression of Portuguese Culture. In 2011, Rádio Amália considered him the “revelation voice” of the year.
