A first generation Portuguese-American, Tania came to know Fado as a child, listening to her godmother sing at family gatherings. With a profound passion for Portuguese music already established, she became exposed to the contemporary Fado singers of Portugal and with their recordings discovered that modern Fado was dynamic and powerful. This new sound of Fado motivated her to explore and appreciate traditional Fado best personified by Amalia Rodrigues. It was here in this genre of music that Tania found her destiny and her voice flourished.
The Portuguese radio stations of the area have acclaimed her ability to express the emotion of this genre as well as the professional quality of the CD itself. The selection of music found on this CD spans the spectrum of what Fado music has to offer from the modern to the traditional... from the lively to the contemplative...from the well-known to the original.
The distinct sound of the Guitarra Portuguesa serves as a beautiful backdrop for Tania\'s voice; a voice that is full and natural...a voice that was destined to sing Fado.
