ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
15 FADO BLUES Catarina Cardeal and Mike Siracusa

A unique blend of Portuguese Fado, Jazz and Blues with a twist!

In 2001 the versitile duo 15 was formed by an undeniable fate. While working together in a band for corporate functions, Catarina Cardeal and Mike Siracusa met for the first time. The rest as they say is history. Incorporating traditional Portuguese Fado songs with jazz, blues and classic rock has not gone unoticed. This unique blend of sound has found 15 performing to sell out audiences in large clubs in Toronto as well as festivals throughout Canada. What is Fado? Fado is music from the heart of the Portuguese soul. It is arguably the oldest urban folk music in the world. It was played for pleasure but also to releive the pain of life. 15s passion for this music is clearly showcased in every performance they do. 15 has also become a favourite of the CBC with many sold out shows, Live at the Glenn Gould, and several live recordings both featuring Canadian jazz legend Jane Bunett. 15 is without a doubt a crowd pleaser envoking emotion and creativity with their brand of Traditional Fado blues music. 15 quite simply will leave you captivated.

WHAT IS "FADO"? Fado music is the heart of the Portuguese soul. It is arguably the oldest urban folk music in the world. Considered the Portuguese Blues, the music is gut wrenching, sometimes humorous, always passionate.

"The best word for there music is "mesmerizing". Breathtaking, The real test came On an especially noisy night at a Toronto nightclub when the whole room was stunned into silence by the magic of
Catarina's voice and Mike’s magnificent music. Fado's never been finer"
Andy Berry
Host of CBC's Metro Morning


" Catarina Cardeal and Mike Siracusa are destined for greatness. 15's tender, passionate and sometimes searing delivery of Fado will leave you breathless and enchanted, just one listen and you’re hooked.
Alan Merriam
The Merriam School of Music


One of the most enjoyable divas to perform Catarina Cardeal, she possessed one of the most beautiful voices. It was sensual, soulful and delivered with a range rarely equaled, Cardeal (and Siracusa performed) four songs. The audience seemed captivated by the quality of her voice, and the great emotions (their) songs conveyed.

Live at Glenn Gould Theatre.. Inventive and enjoyable music making, it represented an expansion of the parameters of Fado..

William Littler
Toronto Star


These two Torontonians...are taking the music they used to hear around the dinner table and mixing it with Led Zeppelin, to them, it just feels right. By combining Fado, with rock, jazz, and blues they are creating something at once new and familiar. The modernized sound lures a diverse crowd, “people in there 20’s right up to 80-year-olds; they are from all walks of life. About 75% don’t know a word and they stick around” Siracusa says. “it’s the spirit of the music”.
Nelia Raposo

Through the speakers in my vehicle there suddenly materialized some of the most beautiful music I have heard in a long time: an ethereal, haunting woman's voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar that struck me as equal parts flamenco and modal jazz.
Micheal Brooks
Historian and journalist

They are the darlings of the CBC…whenever we put 15 on the air we are inundated with phone calls.

Fado Blues
It shows of both of their talents. The performance was flawless. But I should have paid more attention to the title of their album, I would have preferred more Fado, but still an enjoyable album.
