|Misia takes the sound of "Senhora da noite" to France|
Misia is an emblematic figure from Portugal, she has modernized the
traditional fado song. On her tenth album, "Senhora da noite", she
honors the great poems by portuguese singers like Amalia Rodrigues.
Misia has concerts scheduled in France next May, at Meaux and Aubergenville on the 11th and 12th May respectively.
On this concert Misia will perform mostly themes from her last album "Senhora da Noite" (Lady of the Night) without forget of course the classic themes that became the best hits of her long carreer. She will be accompanied by the traditional portuguese guitar which will join the accordion, piano and violin.
Mísia's tenth album is a return to traditional Fado. The atmosphere set by the singer is a more intimate and emotional than on her previous work.
The idea of the "Senhora da Noite" project was to combine traditional music with lyrics written exclusively by women poets and writers (such as Agustina Bessa-Luís, Hélia Correia and Lídia Jorge) and by women who are singers or Fadista themselves such as Amália Rodrigues, Amélia Muge and also Mísia herself.
As with her record "Garras Dos Sentidos" the music of the old traditional Fado played by the guitar trio is complemented by melodic lines from the accordion, piano and violin. Mísia first introduced these instruments to Fado in her early recordings and they have ever since become typical for her personal Fado sound.
For the first time in the history of Fado, this is an album in which the role of women is not limited at all to be the muse or the singer. They are authors who create the poetic universes for this music genre themselves. As usual for Mísia's work, all texts of "Senhora da Noite" were written especially for her voice with the exception of some poems by late authors who have already passed away.
