Carminho & Quartet

Stadtcasino Basel
Tuesday, 07 February

Fado is her life, and hardly any other singer gives this Portuguese form of the song as much power, passion, and depth as Carminho. Devoting herself entirely to this deep and traditional genre, she creates brand new traditional fados that she effortlessly puts her own stamp on. The composer, author, and performer Carminho is one of Portugal's most recognized artists, not only in the fado genre, but also as a great voice of Portugal inside and outside the borders. She is the heiress to the fado tradition and has shaped the history of the genre with her own fado repertoire. Only an artist who knows the essence of this unique genre of music can continue it as profoundly and masterfully as she does.
After her great success with the album “Carminho Canta Jobim” (2016), in which she bowed respectfully and passionately to the Brazilian songwriter Antonio Carlos (Tom) Jobim, she returned in 2019 with a brand-new album, “Maria.” Her fifth album is her most personal yet as she wrote and produced most of the songs herself. The big voice of Portugal is finally on tour in 2023 with her long-awaited new album!
Tickets are CHF 34.10-89.90.
