Carminho, modern fado from Portugal

Maria do Carmo Carvalho Rebelo de Andrade is better known as Carminho. She is a Portuguese fado singer.

You can say she was raised with music on her mind, since she comes from a family of musicians. Her mother, Teresa Siqueira, was a famous fado singer and music runs in her veins. She is considered one of the most talented and innovative fado singers of her generation.

She is not only excellent when performing tradition fado, but her eclectic work shows the heritage of traditional and contemporary fado, as she also dwells into other genres, like Portuguese folk music, Brazilian popular music, jazz, pop, and rock.
