It is already next Sunday, August 30, at 6 pm, that Matilde Cid takes the stage of Lounge D of Casino Estoril to interpret the best compositions of the album “Puro”, not forgetting other successes that mark her career.
With her own style, the fado singer recovers her main successes, being accompanied by Diogo Lucena Quadros on guitar and Luís Roquette on viola. Admission is free.
She was born in Estremoz and grew up in a family linked to music. Family evenings were spent playing the viola, piano and singing. Her father was a fan of jazz, blues and bossa nova, while her mother was passionate about fado. It was like this, through the mother that fado became her favorite song. She began to sing in the cafés of Estremoz and, later, in Évora, simultaneously with her university career.
Later, she went to Lisbon where she found the true essence of fado in the bohemian atmosphere of the capital’s fado houses. Maria João Quadros invited her to join the resident cast of “Casa da Mariquinhas”, in Alcântara.
In November 2014, João Braga invited her to participate in a concert, where he presented her as one of the newest voices of fado. With a sweet and melodious voice, Matilde Cid interprets the Lisbon song in a very particular way. “PURO”, the debut album was released in September 2019.
