In his indomitable curiosity and love of music, he combines the experience of several decades of singing with the same young and enthusiastic spirit that brought him from Cuba and rocked him between Portugal and Cape Verde. He let himself be conquered by the feeling of fado, the guitar of the early hours of Lisbon, the soul of morna, and the cavaquinho of Mindelo by Cesaria Evora.

Emílio Moret, Fábia Rebordão, and Lucibela give life to the theme created by Sonero. A union is as unlikely as it is certain. Three unique artists, in a theme that brings together three continents, three countries, and three languages.

The guitar, master in these three corners of the world, sharpened Emílio Moret’s creativity. In a passionate impulse, Sonero combined Latin romanticism with the lamentation of fado and the longing for the morna. The result isPOR LA FELICIDAD”, the theme that leaves our emotions on edge.

Fábia Rebordão, one of the reference voices of new fado, sings the first verses of Emílio Moret’s composition with fado enthusiasm.

Lucibela is the new voice of traditional music in Cape Verde. A sublime voice, which carries the taste of the lukewarm to which Emílio surrendered.

Between Cuba, Portugal, and Cape Verde, “POR LA FELICIDAD” is a journey to the best that music gives us – feeling.

But, “POR LA FELICIDAD” gains greater dimension and a vast meaning when the album is titled and celebrates the union of three cultures, which share the strength of love in the struggle for happiness! Recorded between Havana and Lisbon, it has a special meaning for Emilio Moret of being his first record work in his own name.

In “POR LA FELICIDAD” Emilio Moret brings us his essence of Sonero in the timbre that is characteristic of him, traversing the various rhythms of Cuban musical identity.
