Sandra Correia - Aqui Existo

Aqui Existo is the third album of Sandra Correia. It's an album of original songs, from one of the most elegant and intense fado singers of this century.

In Sandra Correia, everything is true. From the intention that she gives to the words of a popular poet to the most sophisticated understanding of an existentialist stanza. She is Fado. Pure and simple. Sandra Correia is a sorceress. She gives chills to those who listen to her. She makes them cry, she makes them smile. She makes them feel unrest. She makes them wanting more. She and Fado are not two distinct entities. She and Fado are unequivocal. In a traditional Fado or in a Fado “musicado”, with a traditional trio or with an orchestra, we can feel the Fado, because it exists in every word Sandra sings. 

Vocal extension and interpretative expression, elegance, class, reflect a superior, mature and relaxed artist. This is clearly an album of consecration, of a major Artist in the Portuguese musical scene. An intense and powerful album, capable of bringing all the emotions to the surface from the listeners.

Sandra Correia - Perspectiva

“Perspectiva” is the title of the first album of originals of Sandra Correia. José Guimarães and Fernando Campos de Castro, two brilliant poets from the North, equally brilliant in the teatro de revista, are the most sung in the album, but we also find poems of wonderful poets such as Florbela Espanca, António Lobo Antunes and Vasco de Graça Moura.

Sandra has a bitter sweet voice, that she fits perfectly in each word she sings, translating the poet's intention. Her voice serves the word, respects the musical staff, but follows her own path. Sandra is a performer! A Fadista full of resources and with that particular talent that Marceneiro called "styling". To hear her in Fado Cravo or in the father of all fados, the Fado Menor, both present in "Perspectiva", is the unequivocal confirmation: Sandra Correia is not just another singer in the Portuguese art scene, but one that Fado has clung to ensure its continuity as a "style".

In Sandra, Fado gains Truth, because even though her voice is young, it has an old flavour, a special unusual soul in these modern times. With a natural touch of class, Sandra is the perfect embodiment of Fado.

The musicians in Perspectiva are:
at the Portuguese guitar, Pedro Viana.
at the classic guitar, Miguel Ramos and André Ramos.
at the bass, Frederico Gato.
