Masculine Fado

Portuguese singer Camané, one of the most innovative contemporary male fado performers, will give a concert at the Studio Theater in Warsaw Dec. 2.

Born as Carlos Manuel Moutinho Paiva dos Santos Duarte in 1967 in Oeiras, Portugal, Camané does not like to talk much about himself other than saying that he “shows who he is when singing.” As his role models, he names Amália Rodrigues, Carlos do Carmo and Alfredo Marceneiro, but these days Camané is an independent performer who, while faithful to fado traditions, also seeks new means of expression. He says that the one thing that always stays the same is his inner determination to keep singing fado for as long as he lives.

Camané has received praise for his unique fado interpretations from both traditionalists and more vanguard audiences. Those partial to tradition like Camané’s respect for the genre and the others appreciate the breath of fresh air Camané has injected into fado, defying the cliché of melancholic songs performed to the sound of two guitars.

Studio Theater; 1 Defilad Sq.; Dec. 2, 8 p.m.
