Bio

Maria Ana Bobone is unanimously recognized as one of the best of her
generation's fadistas. She sings it and she does it in a distinc way: in the tradition
of all the great voices.
Maria Ana Bobone started singing Fado at age 16, after completing courses in
both Piano and Singing at the National Conservatory of Music.
Her debut album entitled "Alma Nova", performed in partnership with two other
singers, would mark the beginning of a brilliant career.
She then recorded two albums for MA Recordings: “Luz Destino” and “Senhora
da Lapa”, revealing a masterful musical taste and where she welcomes new
instruments (harpsichord and saxophone) in addition to the usual presence of the
Portuguese guitar, to the Fado sonority.
Her career continued with the release of “Nome de Mar”, a work that brought her
the deserved public recognition and which collected the most positive reviews
from all the "media."
The qualities and enormous talent of Maria Ana Bobone led her to make various
incursions in other musical projects, constantly engaging in successful
partnerships. It were those same qualities that led her to gather around her
prestigious guitarists as Ricardo Rocha and Pedro Caldeira Cabral, each
contributing with the uniqueness and beauty of their own compositions that
reached, in the voice of Maria Ana Bobone, the porsued sonority of it's creators.
Performing constantly in Portugal's major venues (Belém's Cultural Centre,
Oporto's House of Music, São Luiz Theatre, Culturgest Auditorium, among many
others) she is a regular guest at numerous festivals and concert halls throughout
the world, presenting Fado Music and Portuguese culture to other cultures
(England, USA, Brazil, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, France,
Mexico, Italy, Morocco, Malta, Netherlands, India...)
Released June 2012, she presents to the public her latest album - Fado & Piano.
In it, partnering with producer Rodrigo Serrao, Maria Ana explores and reveals
the full dimension of her talent: composing, writing, singing, creating musical
arrangements and playing all the songs on the piano, she re-defines it as an
instrument of choice in accompanying Fado (tradition that dates back to the early
twentieth century). Innovating once again, she sustains it in a deep respect and
knowledge of old traditions, accompanied as allways by the inescapable
Portuguese Guitar and the Double-bass.
This makes Maria Ana Bobone, one of the most important and distinct artistic
references of today.
