The “voice of Portugal”, Carlos do Carmo says goodbye today to the stage at the Coliseu dos Recreios, in Lisbon.
In a career that began 57 years ago, with many hits that will never be forgotten, Carlos do Carmo takes the stage of the Coliseum in what is announced will be the last concert of the fadista.
Carlos do Carmo, who in 2004 received the Latin Grammy for his career, sang in the best venues in the world such as the Olympia and the National Auditorium in Paris, at the Place des Arts, Montreal, in Frankfurt operas and from Wiesbaden, at Le Carré, Amsterdam, at the Latin American Memorial, in São Paulo, at ‘Canecão’, in Rio de Janeiro and of course at the Royal Albert Hall, in London, among other rooms where he took his music and magic around the world.
With him on stage will be the masters José Manuel Neto, on the Portuguese guitar, Carlos Manuel Proença, on the guitar, and Marino de Freitas, on the bass guitar, trio that usually accompanies him.
Carlos do Carmo, who will be 81 in December, is one of the biggest references in Portuguese music. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa,
President of the Republic will be one of the many spectators in the farewell of the stages of the Portuguese fado singer.
