Personality of the Week
José Fontes Rocha

20 September, 1926 - 15 August, 2011


José Fontes Rocha remains a source of inspiration for all fado musicians and singers, as he still provides a matchless accompaniment and is a fine melody composer. As a true master of Portuguese guitar, Fontes Rocha continues to record, accompany and compose music for fado, developing a close collaboration with the best fado singers.
