Ana Moura

Origin: Portugal

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: World

Born to a music loving family, Ana Moura started singing at an early age. In her teens, she took an interest in pop and rock, but soon realized the best vehicle for her vocal skills was fado. Discovered by renowned singer Maria da Fé, Ana Moura's career took off after an invitation to sing at her famed Lisbon fado house. A former collaborator of the late, great Amália Rodrigues, musician and producer Jorge Fernando then helped the young singer produce Guarda-me a vida na mão (2003), her first album. Follow-up Aconteceu (2004) spawned an unexpected new supporter in Mick Jagger, who invited the singer to perform a duet with him during a Rolling Stones concert in Lisbon. In 2007, Ana Moura  released Para além de saudade followed by Leva-me aos fados in 2009.
