Amalia Rodrigues – Amália da Piedade Rebordão Rodrigues was her full name – was a Portuguese actress and performer who died in 1999. A true icon of Portuguese music, she was called the Queen of Fado, mostly because of the nostalgic character of her melodies. She had an enormous impact on Portuguese music and fado music specifically. Her song Fado Português is the archetype of Amalia’s Lusophone music.

This young, energetic fado singer-or fadista-from Portugal has successfully blown any dust off the old-school sounds of fado, and brightened it up for the modern era. Fado originated in Portugal in the 1800s, defined by its ballad style and the presence of a jaunty classical guitar, and continues to be a source of cultural pride. It’s meant to capture that oh-so-Portuguese notion of saudade-a feeling of nostalgia, loss or yearning-with its lyrics and instrumentals. Mariza follows closely in the hallowed footsteps of beloved singer Amália Rodrigues, the uncontested Rainha do Fado (Queen of Fado). Mariza kicked off her career by singing a tribute to Amália. If you haven’t already, be sure to listen to Amália’s songs, too-she’s pretty darn famous in Portugal and worldwide!)

It’s impossible to forget Portugal’s fado sweetheart Ámalia Rodrigues when listing the best musicians from Lisbon. She was, and still is, considered the ‘Queen of Fado’. Born in Lisbon in 1920, Ámalia sang her entire life but attracted much attention in 1945 with her song ‘Ai Mouraria’. malia’s success reached around the globe and she was an international star and an Ambassador for Portugal. One of her most famous songs is called ‘Uma Casa Portuguesa’ (‘A Portuguese House’). Today, it’s common to hear people talk about ‘the new Ámalia’, a nickname for Mozambique-born fadista Mariza. Her first album, Fado em Mim, was released a year later and her career soared after that. She has released six studio albums, two live albums, a number of singles, has sold over 1 million records and is known around the world.
