Deolinda - Portuguese 'bluesy fado'


The band's style is inspired by fado but differs substantially from that traditional Portuguese genre. For instance, Deolinda does not use Portuguese guitar as fado would dictate. Deolinda's songs and lyrics are not serious and fatalistic like classic fado: instead, they often use humor, irony and a fast, happy pace.
I came across them browsing the Tube and I will definitely listen again
