About Ana Moura
fado singer Ana Moura first got her start in music by performing in nightclubs and small venues in Portugal. In 2003, she
was ready to release her debut album, "Guarda-me a vida na mao," which allowed to her generate a solid following in Lisbon
and beyond. Ana Moura was just 25 years old at the time of her debut release, but her album carried the grace and confidence
of a veteran performer. Fans immediately fell in love with Ana Moura's hypnotic voice, and the album established her as a
rising new artist on the scene.
Ana Moura returned in 2005 with the album, "Aconteceu," but it was her third studio
album, "Para Alem da Saudade," that really took her career to the next level. Released in 2007, the album contained popular
songs like "O Fado da Procura" and "Os Buzios," and fans everywhere were scrambling to get their hands on this buzzed-about
release. Following the success of "Para Alem da Saudade," Ana Moura scored appearances on a number of television programs,
and the album quickly went triple platinum and maintained a top 30 position for over 100 weeks on the Portugal chart. In addition
to the album's commercial success, Ana Moura scored her first nomination for a Golden Globe for Best Individual Performer.
2009, Ana Moura went on to release her fourth album, "Leva-me aos Fados," which was likewise a hit with critics and fans and
quickly shot to the number 2 position on the chart in Portugal. The album was propelled to popularity by its successful singles,
"Caso Arrumado," "Como uma Nuvem no Ceu," "Rumo ao Sul," "Nao e um fado Normal," and the album's title track. After the success
of "Leva-me aos Fados," Ana Moura embarked on a tour across several countries, with appearances at the San Francisco Jazz
Festival as well. Ana Moura's fifth album, "Desfado," was also a big hit, and it entered the Portuguese Albums chart at the
number 2 position, with a peak position of number 1. The album has since been certified double platinum in Portugal, and it
has spawned the singles "Ate ao Verao" and the title track.
Ana Moura's Breakthrough Album
at clubs in Portugal, Ana Moura was eventually discovered by producer and musician Jorge Fernando. At age 25, Ana Moura released
her debut album in 2003, titled "Guarda-me a vida na mao," which proved to be a great start for the rising performer. Her
velvety voice enchanted fans and critics alike, and she was soon one of the most promising artists in Portugal. Ana Moura
followed up with another release, "Aconteceu," a couple of years later, but she finally found her breakthrough with her 2007
album, "Para Alem de Saudade." Led by popular tracks like "Os Buzios" and "O Fado da Procura," the album was generating lots
of buzz in Portugal. The release of "Para Alem de Saudade" led to her scoring a number of television appearances, and the
album was soon certified triple platinum in Portugal. Her next two albums, "Leva-me aos Fados" and "Desfado" were likewise
met with acclaim and praise, and Ana Moura has since risen to become one of the prominent figures in her genre.
