By now the northern hemisphere is loosening up and taking to the beaches in the south, the lakes in the north or chilling out in improvised beaches in Paris or Berlin. It is time to loosen up, to get loaded, to release the pressure. To help you while your are at it doing absolutely nothing follow our suggestion and get this DVD with Primal Scream performing “Screamadelica”, the brilliant album by this british band and featuring true hymns of a generation like the mellow title “Loaded”, the fabulous groovy “Don’t fight it, feel it” or the mind blowing “Swastika Eyes”.
Fado, the Portuguese melancholic music genre has been recently considered by UNESCO as “Immaterial Heritage of Mankind”. So far so good, nice one and congratulations. Indeed, from Goddess Amália Rodrigues to Camané and Carminho there are numerous examples of songs, also known as fados, who are there to make you heart melt, to make you faint with sorrow, to make even the hardest cobble stone weep.
But now and then we need to reinvent ourselves and avoid excessive traditionalism. Fortunately some artists, from Paulo Bragança, to Mísia or Anamar, have been able to give Fado a more contemporary touch. This track is a fine example: Fado played with sinthesizers with the help of the talented Carlos Maria Trindade and the great voice by Paulo Bragança.
