Known as the “Rainha do Fado” (Queen of Fado), Amália Rodrigues was a legendary singer in the Portuguese fado, a genre of music characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics. This live concert album, recorded on November 16, 1956, is a testament to a legend in her prime, singing Portuguese songs with her vulnerable, expressive voice at Paris’ Olympia Theatre.
