Raquel Tavares, 2008
|Born||11 January 1985|
Raquel sings what she sees, feels and smells around her, what she lives from day to day. And nothing suits her purposes better than the tangible, real-life stories written by Linhares Barbosa, the fado poet who best told the tales of the people.
Her first album was released in 2006 and this was also the year when she was the winner of the Amália Rodrigues Revelation Prize.
Her second album, Bairro, just came out in May 2008.
She has been named one of the most representative fado singers of the new generation and no longer just a promising voice.
