Carminho’s iconic voice will resonate across Canada in three unforgettable performances.
With shows in Vancouver (October 15th), Montreal (October 18th) and Toronto (October 21st) the singer promises a magical night, with an immersion in the world of Portuguese fado, presenting her latest album: Portuguesa.
Admired by fans in Portugal and abroad, the singer is today counted among the purest and most passionate voices of this fervent and melancholic song: fado.
Daughter of fado singer Teresa Siqueira, Carminho grew up immersed in the melodies and traditions of this musical style, making her first public performance at the age of twelve. However, the artist’s journey was marked by moments of maturity and self-discovery, including a break to graduate in Marketing and Advertising and experiences traveling the world on humanitarian missions. These experiences took her back to Lisbon, ready to dedicate herself fully to her artistic career.
Carminho’s career is a story of passion, growth and achievements, which has made her one of the most iconic fado artists and an ambassador of Portuguese music around the world. With each album, she reinvents her art, keeping the fado tradition alive and captivating new audiences. Carminho is truly a voice that transcends borders and generations, and her impact on music is incomparable.
Carminho’s career shines in creativity and authenticity
In 2009, Carminho released her debut album, “Fado”, which achieved platinum status, a remarkable achievement for a newcomer. She went on a world tour that spread her talent across different territories and, in the same year, made history by becoming the first Portuguese artist to reach number one on the Spanish music charts with the collaboration “Perdoname” with Pablo Alborán.
In 2012, Carminho released her second album, “Alma”, which took her to perform in the main venues in Europe and the world. She fulfilled her dream of collaborating with Brazilian music icons such as Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and Nana Caymmi, resulting in a reissue of the album with three new songs. Her popularity in Brazil grew, and she was recognized in Portugal with a Golden Globe and the Carlos Paredes Award, while her albums achieved the double platinum mark.
The album “Canto”, released in 2014, further deepened Carminho’s connection with Brazil, featuring a unique collaboration with Caetano Veloso and his son Tom. The album also featured Marisa Monte and Arnaldo Antunes on the track “Chuva at sea”. Carminho consolidated her position as one of Portugal’s most international artists, racking up awards and selling platinum.
2016: Singing Tom Jobim
In 2016, Carminho received a special invitation from Antônio Carlos Jobim’s family and released “Carminho Canta Tom Jobim”. This exciting album featured the participation of legends such as Chico Buarque, Maria Bethânia and Marisa Monte. Awards and platinum certifications followed the release, further solidifying her career.
Carminho chose the title “Maria” for her fifth album, where she took over production and contributed original compositions. The album is an emotional and contemporary interpretation of fado, maintaining tradition but adding a modern touch to its roots.
