Guitar and viola, fado and one of the most unique voices in the Portugese scene. Aldina Duarte’s double album “Romance(s)” was withouth doubt one of the highlights of 2015, an elegant record that brought new light into the beloved genre.
A result of many meetings – and Aldina’s collaboration with the poet Maria do Rosário Pedreira – the record itself is a story about a love triangle, playing with drama, stereotypes and far from obvious plots we usually get in romance(s).
This intense album certainly deserves to be heard in its entirety, but you could start with “Dois Ponteiros and make your next stop at “A Maçã de Adão“.
