Natalino de Jesus started singing at fado shows in the communities and fado houses in the neighborhood of Madragoa, in Lisbon, where he was born, following the victory in the Great Night of Fado in Lisbon, in 1985, which gave him entrance to professionalization, having been part of the casts of several fado houses in Lisbon, including Adega Mesquita, Taverna D´El Rei or the restaurant A Severa.

In this new album, in a total of twelve themes plus one extra, Natalino de Jesus sings poems by Maria de Lurdes de Carvalho for the first time, “Poema Bendito”, with music by Martinho d’Assunção (1914-1992), and “Teus olhos são Arco Íris “, which he recorded in the melody of Fado Corrido, and, by Daniel Gouveia, who also signs the song, “O Rafeiro”.

The album’s line-up also includes a song by the Cancioneiro Açoriano, “Olhos Negros”, which was also recorded by other performers, namely Maria de Lourdes Resende and Teresa Salgueiro.

In this album, Natalino de Jesus is accompanied by musicians Fernando Silva, on the Portuguese guitar, Carlos Macieira and Francisco do Carmo, on the viola, and Fernando Nani on the bass viola.
