The music of Katia Guerreiro

  • Sep 5, 2009
I first came across the music of Katia Guerreiro in a CD store in Lisbon while browsing with my friend Armando. Armando has since passed away in a work accident (he was an archaelogist) and I've been missing him a great deal.

It is only apt that whenever I hear Katia Guerreiro that I'm often reminded of my time with Armando (4 days in Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais) in Portugal. I've had such a great time there also because of this online friend of mine whom I met for the first time about 5 years ago while traveling in Portugal. Armando has left but I'll always remember this friend of mine. It's such a pity he has to leave the world at such a young age! 

Katia Guerreiro is the singer whom I enjoyed listening Fado most. Her voice is soulful and yet not husky. Clean, clear and very pleasant to my ears! I truly love this album of her (as pictured above). If you get a chance to hear her music, let me know if you like it.

So sorry to hear about Armando, Sharrie.  It's wonderful how music can be a great reminder of people, places and experiences though.  Those videos are lovely.

There are lots of wonderful people and things in Portugal. You'll have to go visit one day and try its Ginja!

Hi Sharrie....what a beautiful artist she is.....will have to buy one of her CDs. By the way, I've been listening to Secret Garden in my soothing and relaxing. Very sorry to hear that your dear friend passed away.

Thanks, Donna! It is indeed very sad to have only one meeting with someone, found out you like him/her, then never see him/her again in this life! Armando is a great and most hospitable guy I've come across. I'll always remember him :-) He does Portugal proud!
