Francisco Salvação Barreto

For the general public, Francisco Salvação Barreto has been one of Fado's best kept secrets.

He started singing young among family and friends and, naturally, Fado becomes part of his life. He performs in fado houses (currently part of the cast of "Sr. Vinho") and in various shows in Portugal and abroad. He is deeply marked by traditional fado, which serves as a basis for singing the words of great names in literature and Fado.

2018 was marked by the release of his first album, "Horas da Vida" with the "Museu do Fado Discos" label.

In the words of Camané, who signs the voice direction of his first record work - "his style, authentic, imposed itself in his way of singing. For years, he matured in the houses of fado and in contact with other fado singers. This was his school. Today, his maturity is revealed in the way he manages to recreate the movements of traditional fados. With a faster pace, but without ever losing the sense of the word and the strength of an emotional register. "
