ALBUM TITLE: António Zambujo: Quinto
WORKS: Quinto
PERFORMER: António Zambujo


Portuguese fado singer António Zambujo has such an assured grasp of his genre that he’s taking it into entirely new places. His fifth album, Quinto, embraces a jazzy ambience, touching on tango and the choral music of his roots in the southern region of Alentejo. The lightness and delicacy of his voice are striking, as is the fact that he writes all his own material.
