Musician, fado singer and producer, Jorge Fernando is one of the most sung composers of Portuguese music. He accompanied Amália Rodrigues around the world and wrote for some of the biggest names in Fado, such as Fernando Maurício, Ricardo Ribeiro, Camané, Ana Moura and Mariza, among many others.
In this celebration concert full of friends, he presented some unpublished themes and revisited his greatest hits. The party was joined by Custódio Castelo, with his Portuguese guitar, and Mariza, who entered the stage with “Rain”, the author’s theme. Tozé Brito awarded him the Medal of Honor on behalf of SPA – Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores.
