MARTA Pereira da Costa | A Portuguese Guitar
MARTA Pereira da Costa is nowadays the first and only female playing Fado professionally with the portuguese guitar worldwide.
In 2014 she was distinguished by Am√°lia Rodrigues Foundation with the "Instrumentist Award".
Marta Pereira da Costa released her album in 2016 with Warner Music Label and had good critics either by the media and the public, but she had already been playing for ten years with other artists and recording and touring with them.
This is a singular project that presents Fado and Portuguese Guitar together, but it also travels through world music, jazz and traditional portuguese music with a very personal and sensitive sonority. Tradition and innovation side by side.
The record had the participation of well known artists from Portugal and abroad such as the bass player Richard Bona in the theme " Encontro‚ÄĚ. At the same time the record pays tribute to Fado and the Portuguese Guitar reference like Carlos Paredes.
The live performance is always a surprising and unquotable moment. On stage Marta adds what can not be recorded: the heart of the woman that made the guitar an extend of her soul.
