Item description for Fado Portugues by edel classics...

Fado-- no other portrayal of the Portugese soul captures it as vividly as these wistful songs of heartbreak, unrequited love, and parting. Before this Portuguese elegy became socially acceptable at the end of the 19th century, it could only be heard

Reviews - What do customers think about Fado Portugues?

BUY THIS BOOK!!!  Sep 6, 2007
The previous review made the right critical points about this book so I won't repeat them. I would just emphasize that the 4 cds included with this nice book are worth the price alone (if the book were more pricey I might give 4 instead of 5 stars). This book is a keeper, not one I'll be trading in at the local used book store in a couple years. As a collector of this music I was very happily surprised by the excellent selection of music here. If you're a Fado fan who has an interest in the music as an art form, you won't be disappointed.
A trip for lovers of fado  Sep 1, 2007
Fado Português is both a picture book and a set of four compact discs.

The picture book is a collection of scenes in and about the places one visits--in the poorer quarters of Lisbon--to hear authentic fado performances. The pictures are of good quality, mostly black-and-white, and convey an impression that you have just wandered in and met some of the people who frequent these places.

The compact discs contain a diverse assortment of fado performances recorded across the past 35 years. Although I had heard many fado CDs before buying this book, many of the singers were new to me.

Good points:
* Excellent pictures
* A wide variety of fado performances, many of which you probably haven't heard.

Bad points:
* Very little descriptive material. What you see is what you get.
* No lyrics for the songs, which (of course) are sung in Portuguese.

Bottom line:
Not an introductory book. Unless you already know something about fado and about the Portuguese language, you probably won't find much here to appreciate.
