THE FORGOTTEN PORTUGAL OF WHICH FADO SINGER JOÃO FERREIRA ROSA SPOKE WILL NOT FORGET HIM
His fados spoke and sang the nostalgia of a forgotten Portugal.
The irreducible defender of traditional fado passed away one day ago at the age of 80. He became famous with popular themes like Fado Alcochete and Fado Pintéus.
He was the owner of one of the main fado houses in Alfama, “Taverna do Embuçado”.
He recovered and opened the Palace of Pintéus, in Loures, where he held several Fado events.
Avid to work in the studio, and even the commercialization of Fado, always preferred to sing live, especially in a circle of friends and lovers of Fado.
