António Zambujo will be singing Chico Buarque at Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, between March 1 and 3, at 9 pm.
“After premièring his album Quinto in Gulbenkian Music in 2012,” António Zambujo returns to showcase a “special” album in his career, “comprising only songs by [Brazilian artist] Chico Buarque,” the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation says in a note published in its official website.
“The connection between Zambujo and Brazilian music is already well-established, and he often performs in Brazil with his very particular brand of Fado with a taste of samba and bossa nova,” the note says.
The foundation also notes the world “was awoken” to António Zambujo “once and for all after Caetano Veloso wrote that ‘he is a young fado singer (…) who makes one think of João Gilberto’ and ‘he sends a shiver down your spine and brings tears to the eye'”.
António Zambujo (voice) will be accompanied by Marcello Gonçalves (Seven-string guitar / Artistic Director), Ricardo Cruz (Double-Bass), Bernardo Couto (Portuguese Guitar), João Moreira (Trumpets) and José Miguel Conde (Clarinets).
