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.

Fado (destiny or fate in English) is a soulful and mournful form of music originating from Portugal. Fado depicts about anything but mostly about the sea or life of the poor. It follows a certain structure and the music is linked to the word sausade (nostalgia or a sense of missing).
