Sara Correia

world music

Ever since she was very young, Sara Correia has been singing regularly at Lisbon's most renowned fado houses. And so she sings with the strength and the confidence of someone who grew up immersed in fado. Now she was ready to release her debut album.

"Everything happened so fast. I've gone out to listen to fado since I was very little, I have fadistas in the family and I started singing when I was very young", she recalls. Still, in those early stages of the path that would lead her to devote herself entirely to fado, there is a moment she remembers as particularly important: "When I sung and won at the Grande Noite do Fado de Lisboa, I felt like this was what I wanted to do with my life".

At 25 years old, Sara Correia releases an impressive homonymous album, based on traditional songs. She says she was born to do this. And it's hard to doubt her. (...)
