Timeless Fado

My favorite Fadista of all time, is Mafalda Arnauth. For those of you who don't know of the Portuguese art form know as Fado, I invite you to listen. It is not for everyone, not everyone can go beyond what is deemed popular to see what is forever beautiful and timeless. Even more than that I wish you could understand the words she sings with such emotion they give me chills every time I hear her perform. Poetry put to music, the blues fused with a stylized opera. You all probably know the music I usually listen to, so this may shock some because of its vast difference. All I ask is if you want to listen keep an open mind and listen with your heart and soul. Click on the link below, and I hope you enjoy. -Stella-
