This is fado rewired and recast. Lina, a Portuguese singer renowned for her haunting interpretations of Amalia Rodrigues's classic repertoire, reinvents fado classics in a brand new way with Spanish producer and multi-instrumentalist Raül Refree (Rosalía, Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo).
Lina and Raül Refree have sloughed off the old trappings and exacting traditions of fado and made it into a perfect fit for the twenty-first century. Replacing guitars with piano and analogue synths, they have reinvented the music and done it while keeping the rich beauty of the melodies and the aching poetry of the words that are such a vital part of the tradition.
