This sprawling anthology offers a spectacular, soul-tingling introduction to fado, Portugal’s gracefully majestic urban folk music. Fado blends sounds of multicultural port city Lisbon into gorgeously mournful songs about the struggle of working class life. This comp covers decades of the stuff: the genre’s early heyday is repped by royalty like Carlos do Carmo and, especially, fado’s high drama queen, Amalia Rodrigues, whose aching alto will break your heart. But contemporary revivalists are also here: don’t miss superstar Ana Moura or passionate provocateur Mariza.
