There was silence in Campo Pequeno, in Lisbon, to hear Fado sing, in a musical project that brought together Camané and Mário Laginha.
Camané, who has always identified himself as an interpreter of his songs, not as an author, took us in a retrospective of his career.
Mário Laginha’s mastery and Camané’s warm and engaging voice offered those who went to Campo Pequeno an excellent musical evening.
As a special guest and, we can say, saxophonist Ricardo Toscano was already a regular and we heard “Asas Fechadas”, as well as two original themes.
Camané has an engaging relationship with his audience, his voice transports us to another universe, in which for an hour and a half we forget the difficulties of the pandemic, of confinement, and his audience returned in equal measure, with an almost full house.
The fado singer always pays tribute in his concerts to the great national fado singers, as well as the composers: Alfredo Marceneiro, Amália Rodrigues, José Mário Branco, Luís de Macedo, David Mourão Ferreira, João Nobre and Aníbal da Nazaré, Manuela de Freitas and Fernando Pessoa, Jaime Santos.
Maria do Rosário Pedreira, one of the favorite poets of the fado singer, João Monge and Sebastião Cerqueira, António Sabrosa.
And so throughout the night, themes like “Não Venhas Tarde”, Quadras – “O Amor Quando se Revela”, “Dança de Volta”, “Com Que Voz”, “Amiga Maria”, “A Guerra das Rosas”, “Fado Rosa”, “Madrugada de Alfama”, “Espelho Quebrado”, “Duas Lágrimas de Orvalho”, “Mote”, “Abandono”, “Se Amanhã fosse Domingo”, “Casa da Mariquinhas”, “Sei de um Rio”, “Triste Sorte” and “A Minha Rua”.
Camané and Mário Laginha, voice and piano, two instruments that complement each other to convey to those who hear them all the feeling and melancholy of a poem.
Another excellent Santa Casa Portugal ao Vivo concert produced by Everything is New.
