"O Mistério"



 Review from www.propermusic.com



Teresa Salgueiro, one of Portugal's most acclaimed and respected singers, is perhaps best known in the UK as the beautiful voice of Madredeus. This first solo recording features fourteen exquisitely crafted songs that show her exceptional voice to its full advantage as well as her song writing abilities.

Salgueiro co-founded Madredeus in 1986, at the tender age of seventeen. She recorded eleven albums with the group helping to establish it as the most internationally renowned Portuguese group of all time. Salgueiro left in 2007 to pursue a solo career and since then has released five albums in collaboration with several different artists.

O Mistério (The Mystery) was recorded last year at the Convent of Arrábida, a tranquil setting surrounded by majestic mountains and the ocean - the inspiration for Salgueiro's music. The lyrics for the songs were written by Salgueiro and reflect on the human condition and the mystery of life. Salgueiro brought together some of Portugal's most gifted musicians for the album, and together with them she composed the music. Long-time collaborator António Pinheiro da Silva co-produced the album.

Personnel: Teresa Salgueiro (vocals), Carisa Marcelino (accordion), Óscar Torres (double bass), André Filipe Santos (guitar), Rui Lobato (drums, percussion, guitar).
