In 2011 Fado was inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It’s a music genre that can be traced to the 1820s in Portugal but probably with much earlier origins. Being now much more than just a Portuguese “song”, Fado has been thoroughly gaining fans all over the 5 continents and is now a very strong worldwide “brand”.
Cláudia Madur is one of the most talented new voices of Fado, widely recognized and acclaimed by audiences and critics.
In 2009 Cláudia Madur recorded her first album “Fado Sem Tempo” (“Timeless Fado”), mainly composed of original poems (some of them by herself) together with traditional Fado melodies.
This album quickly led to many international presentations in countries such as Spain, France, Germany, the USA, Switzerland, Denmark, Cyprus and Turkey. Some of its tracks were included in some special editions for the promotion of Fado: “Ser Fadista” and “Porto Sentido” were integrated into the collection “Divas do Fado” (“Fado Divas”) (publishing company Difference Entertainment) and her version of the song “Ó Gente da Minha Terra” (“Oh People of My Land”) is also part of the international Fado collection “Beginner’s Guide To Fado” (publishing company Demon Music Group).
“Madur” is the namesake title of her new album which was released in April 2016 and is followed by a world tour all over the 5 continents.
This launch marked the beginning of a new phase of her artistic career and includes the participation of very well-known authors, producers and musicians such as Valter Rolo, Diogo Clemente and Ângelo Freire.
“Madur” is available on all major global digital music distribution platforms.
