THE DEPARTURE OF JOSÉ CARVALHINHO, FADO VIOLIST OF CAFÉ LUSO
A contemporary of one of the guitarists who gave more of his artistic life to the Café Luso, Edgar Nogueira, the violist José Carvalhinho left an entourage of disciples inside and outside this fado house.
Performed with great technical skill, part of the knowledge owed to his Father, the illustrious guitarist Francisco Carvalhinho, accompanied many names of Fado singers. Only a few of them, Fernanda Maria, Fernando Farinha, Cláudia Leal, Maria da Nazaré.
The cast of Café Luso expresses deep gratitude and sorrow.
