  1. Wonderful. I have a disc with her singing this, but so nice to see her. Love that travel shot moving in on her face, and the way she ends the song here is fantastic. Have you heard fadista Ana Moura? She’s tremendous now, and I think she will be as great as Amalia.

      • Her newest album has some songs in English–she does Joni Mitchell’s “I Could Drink a Case of You”–but her earlier albums are more traditional. But be sure to check her site and youtube. There’s video of her singing with the Rolling Stones in Lisboa…she gets much more love than Mick J in that venue.
