Teresa Câmara(N. 6 June, 1991)
Born on June 6, 1991, Teresa Câmara grew up surrounded by fado. Her grandfather, Vicente da Câmara, instilled in her a taste for fado and he, along with her uncle, José da Câmara, were and continue to be two of her greatest artistic references.
She made her debut singing in public at just 11 years old and at 15 she began to be a regular at fado houses, also touring the country with a fado project, sung as a family.
In 2011, she participated in the album “Câmara: Um Nome, 3 Gerações”. This very special project brought together three generations of the Câmara family: the patriarch, Vicente, two of his children, José and Manuel, and Teresa, the granddaughter.
In 2014, Campo Pequeno hosted the Christmas Gala – Família do Fado, where four families with a fado tradition got together for a very special concert: Cid, Pinto Basto, Noronha and Câmara. Teresa participated alongside her grandfather Vicente and uncles José and Manuel.
Teresa now debuts, at the age of 31, with her solo album – “Lugares”.
The album is titled as a reference to the existence of different spaces, whether physical or mental, which somehow seem important to the artist, celebrating this diversity of states of mind in a reality as impermanent as the one we live in.
It is a record marked by traditional fado and includes some unpublished songs. Recorded in the middle of a pandemic, it has the accompaniment of Luís Petisca, on the Portuguese guitar and Armando Figueiredo on the fado viola and bass guitar, having been produced by José da Câmara.
“Lugares” is edited by the Museu do Fado Discos and had the support of SPA.
