Katia Guerreiro (born South Africa, 1976) is a Portuguese fado singer.

Early years[edit]

Born in South Africa to Portuguese parents, Katia went to the Portuguese Azores islands when she was still a child. In 1994 she went to Lisbon where she studied medicine at the University of Lisbon.

Her first contact with music started in the Azores where she played the traditional instrument of the islands, "viola da terra" (typical instrument of the island), in a folk group of São Miguel Island.

In Lisbon she founded a musical group of students where she played and sang and also integrated a rock band with music from the 1960s - "Os Charruas" - as their lead vocalist.

It was with all her musical friends, from folk to the rock band, that she found Fado. It was in 2000 in a concert in the Coliseu de Lisboa in memory to Amália Rodrigues that she embraced her career in Fado.

Her first album, "Fado Maior", was edited in 2001. This album went on to become a silver album and was nominated to the José Afonso Prize. It was edited in Europe by Empreinte Digitale.

In 2003, "Nas Mãos do Fado" ("In the Hands of Fate"), her second album, was once more nominated for the José Afonso Prize. In this album she sang the poetry of most important names in Portugal such as Luís de Camões, Florbela Espanca, José Carlos Ary dos Santos and António Lobo Antunes.

In October 2005, Katia released her third album of originals, "Tudo ou nada" ("All or Nothing") which included poems by Vinicius de Moraes, Sophia de Mello Breyner, António Lobo Antunes among others, as well as of Katia herself. Bernardo Sassetti played the piano in the song "Minha Senhora das Dores".
