Public history is returning to the CCB. More than ever, there is an urgent need to think about the future by critically revisiting the past, for a broad and non-academic audience, who are called upon to participate in these Conversations with History.
On 24 April, we will be bringing Camané, the Fado singer who has so delighted us, to the CCB.
Emotion. Tradition enriched with the right dose of risk. Versatility.
All of this is part of Camané’s artistic personality.
Camané needs no presentation. He is indisputably regarded as “the voice” of Fado.
Demonstrating a rare musical sensitivity, Camané continues to cement his reputation as a unique voice in the art of Fado singing. He is one of the most representative and essential names in the history of Fado and Portuguese music.
One of the most highly acclaimed Fado singers, both nationally and internationally.
Among many other songs, it is impossible to resist the enchantment and magic of Sei de um rio, Complicadíssima teia, A Guerra das Rosas, Ela tinha Uma Amiga or Senhora do Livramento. They are profound and timeless Fado songs that can be listened to over and over again with pleasure and emotion.
After topping the musical sales charts in 2015, with Infinito Presente, Camané prepared the release of a new album, Camané canta Marceneiro.
This was a timeless recording by Camané, paying a well-deserved tribute to one of his greatest references.
In August 2017, Camané was distinguished with the Tenco Prize, also awarded to the Italians Vinicio Campossela and Massimo Ranieri.
Awarded annually since 1974 by the Tenco Club, in homage to the Italian songwriter Luigi Tenco (1939-1967), this prize has already been won by such world-renowned singers as Leo Ferré, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, and the Portuguese artists Sérgio Godinho, José Mário Branco and Dulce Pontes, among others.
After Camané canta Marceneiro, Camané released the album Aqui Está-se Sossegado (2019), performing as a duo with his longstanding friend and collaborator Mário Laginha. The record itself is composed of 11 songs taken either directly from the Fado songbook or from Camané’s own career, as well as five entirely new and previously unreleased songs, the fruit of the close relationship developed over many years between these two leading musicians, which first began on stage and only later moved into the studio.
