Ana Moura - Fado moves into the future

Ana Moura sits in a restaurant in downtown Lisbon explaining how she was always destined to be a fado singer, she just hadn't always realised it. "We have this saying in Portugal: you have to be born a fado singer, it's not something you just learn."
Moura is today one of the best-known fado singers in the world, following in the footsteps of Mariza and her global success. She has sung with both the Rolling Stones and Prince, who is a major fan. And yet it was almost by accident that she found herself singing fado – the plaintive and melancholic style of song that is often known as the Portuguese blues.
"Things in my life just happen," she says.
