“Voice (cello)” with Soul

Amalia – The Movie is a Portuguese film directed by Carlos Coelho da Silva, premiered in Portugal 4 December 2008.

The film is a fictionalized biography of the first great fado singer Amalia Rodrigues. This work was a film project of national and international dimension which portrays so novel, a long period of life of the greatest singer of all time and inescapable figure in the history of twentieth-century Portuguese.

The video here, with music by the portuguese composer Nuno Malo, materializes the portuguese guitar in a unique way and shows us that it can be taken as an ally for the whole orchestra. It’s important to highlight the role of the solo instrument cello here.

For me this is one of the most notable pieces in the genre that does justice to the work of singer Amalia.
