Mafalda Arnauth is a fado singer.[1] She was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in October 1974 and started her career in 1995 when invited by João Braga to participate in a concert at S. Luis's Theater.

Arnauth released a debut album in 1999. It received positive reviews and won the Prize for Best Upcoming Voice by the weekly magazine Blitz.[citation needed] She performed concerts in the Netherlands, in the Louisiana Centre (Denmark), and in Italy at the festival Sete-Sois, Sete-Luas and the Centro Cultural de Belém (Lisbon).

Her second album, Esta voz que me atravessa (English: This voice that goes through me) was released in 2001, produced by Amélia Muge and José Martins. Her next album Encantamento was self-produced. Arnauth said it "leaves fatality, disgrace, and nostalgia behind. Hope is fed on sadness; inspiration on suffering; strength and courage on difficulties."[citation needed]
