A night of music for voice and guitars.
Following her sell-out concerts in July and September, Portuguese Fado Singer Mariana Moreira returns to the intimate, club-like setting of the upstairs room at The Drake to present an international evening that will recreate the atmosphere of a Bohemian Club where music of all types is enjoyed.
Mariana Moreira is rapidly gaining respect for her soulful singing of traditional Fado; Cape Verdean "Morna" and Brazilian "canções brasileiras". Drawing on the tradition of the great "fadistas": the late Amália Rodrigues (the 'Rainha do Fado' -"Queen of Fado") and modern fado star, Mariza, her singing strikes directly to your heart and evokes the clubs and kitchens of downtown Lisbon.
Mariana is joined by Samuele Sorana and a special guest yet to be announced.
Samuele Sorana trained at the Conservatorio Rossini di Pesaro, Italy. As a highly proficient jazz guitarist he has performed with local jazz musicians in Glasgow as well as accompanying Mariana's performances of Fado.
