Portugal’s António Zambujo has been a leading voice in the resurrection of male fado singers in a female-dominated genre. Dedicated to expanding the boundaries of the art form, this global star merges traditional fado with cante alentejano—a North African–influenced male chant from southern Portugal—and Brazilian popular music. With a silky, plaintive tenor voice, he is breathing fresh life into this old musical style, expressing not only the sorrow and longing but also the joy and passion. In 2018 he will be touring music from his latest acclaimed album, Até Pensei que Fosse Minha, a tribute to Chico Buarque. He has been praised by the New York Times, who wrote that Antonio "upholds fado's sense of longing and tragic dignity as he brings it into modern close-up."
