    Antonio Zambujo: The Spirit of Fado

    Portuguese fado sensation Antonio Zambujo grew up immersed in the classic rhythm of Portugal. As a teen he moved to Lisbon and joined the prestigious Clube de Fado in the Alfama district, the music's heartland. Fado is infused with the indescribable Portuguese word "saudade", a sense of longing and nostalgia, and fills the taverns and concert halls with a melancholy sense of beauty. Akin to blues and flamenco, fado has become synonymous with Portugal, and usually features the lovely Portuguese guitar and a reverence for the power of the human voice. Zambujo has stepped into big shoes as fado's new heartthrob. He gained fame playing the part of Francisco Cruz, first husband of fado diva Amalia Rodrigues, in the smash hit Amália. Since his debut CD in 2002, he has toured internationally, and been awarded countless honors. Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso, a collaborator, praised the young singer: "I want to hear more and more often, go deeper. His music thrills and makes me cry."
