Camané and Ana Sofía Varela
Camané is an outstanding Portuguese fado singer with a voice smooth, soulful, and impassioned. He comes from a musical fado family dating back to his great grand-father. His mother and father and two brothers Helder and Pedro Moutinho (Helder will perform on Saturday night) are also highly acclaimed fadistas. A comprehensive exposition on Camané’s work opened at the Fado Museum in 2011, and in 2014 he was the subject of a documentary film Fado Camané, directed by Bruno de Almeida. He will be joined by Lisbon-born Ana Sofía Varela. Known for her commitment to traditional Alentejo music, Ana Sofía has worked with many legendary figures in fado on tour, in concert and on recordings, has won many awards and is a regular fixture at the Clube de Fado.

Camané, with his silky baritone, can emote with the best of them, but never takes it over the top. This voice, with its volume and sheer beauty, springing from this small-framed man is something to behold. – NPR Music
