The crop of young fadistas currently singing have made Portugal's fado style a thing of international joy. Mafalda Arnauth shows that among her contemporaries, she's the one with the most traditional heart. Having scored a Portuguese Top Ten hit with her last disc, she's certainly ready to go global, and there's no denying that, from the first note, the has the purity and emotion that fado demands of a singer. Unlike, say Mariza or Cristina Branco, who have both introduced new instruments and moods into the genre, Arnauth sticks to the classic backing of guitar, Portuguese guitar, and bass on her mix of vintage and new material вЂ” the newer songs being firmly within the standards of the tradition.
